Trent Reznor Takes His â€˜Year Zeroâ€™ Concept To HBO
LA TIMES — Trent Reznor says HBO and BBC Worldwide Productions are moving forward with the development of â€œYear Zero,â€ the grim sci-fi epic that Reznor has chronicled in his music as well as in a celebrated Alternate Reality Game (ARG).
â€œWe are in [the development phase of] pre-production with HBO and BBC [Worldwide Productions] to do a miniseries,â€ Reznor said Monday. â€œItâ€™s exciting. I probably shouldnâ€™t say too much about it except that I understand that thereâ€™s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. Itâ€™s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now weâ€™re writing drafts back and forth. So itâ€™s very much alive and incubating at the moment.â€
Reznor is working with the team of Lawrence Bender, best known for producing Quentin Tarantino films such as â€œPulp Fiction,â€ â€œInglourious Basterdsâ€ and â€Reservoir Dogsâ€œ as well as the documentaries â€œAn Inconvenient Truthâ€ and â€œCountdown to Zero,â€ and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was executive producer on â€œRoswell.â€œ
