Isaac Asimov’s Foundation books are coming to television with a series set for HBO. The Wrap reports that Interstellar writer and Person of Interest showrunner Jonathan Nolan is in charge of the adaptation. Currently, Nolan is also working on adapting Westworld for HBO.
The books were once set to be adapted into a film by Roland Emmerich, so news of a series is a big deal. However, there is no word yet on whether it will be a full-fledged series or a miniseries event. Given the amount of material in the Foundation books, it wouldn’t be a stretch to produce several seasons worth of shows.
