This is very excited news with the talent involved because it’s been confirmed that Amazon Studios have green-lit The Peripheral, based on the William Gibson novel, from the highly impressive production team of Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy (Westworld).
This one-hour drama focused around Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow’s America. Flynne is smart, ambitious, and doomed. She has no future, until the future comes calling for her. The Peripheral is William Gibson’s dazzling, hallucinatory glimpse into the fate of mankind, and what lies beyond…
Nolan and Joy had this to say:
“35 years ago, William Gibson invented the future. With The Peripheral he brings us another look, and his vision is as clear, intoxicating, and terrifying as ever. All of us at Kilter [Films] are incredibly proud to be supporting Vincenzo and Scott’s brilliant vision for bringing Gibson’s work to the screen.”
Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, added:
“This story calls for a masterful level of talent to bring acclaimed author William Gibson’s science fiction thriller to life. We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Television, Oscar-nominated writer Scott B. Smith and Vincenzo Natali in bringing this fantastic new series to our global Prime Video customers.”
The Peripheral is from Amazon Studios and Warner Bros. Television, in association with Kilter Films. Executive producers are creator and showrunner Scott B. Smith, director Vincenzo Natali, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, Athena Wickham, and Steven Hoban – We’ll bring you more as we hear it!
