Nine Inch Nails' Year Zero to Become HBO Miniseries


Trent Reznor recently told the LA Times that a sci-fi miniseries based on Nine Inch Nails’ 2007 concept album Year Zero is in the works.

“We are in [the development phase of] pre-production with HBO and BBC [Worldwide Productions] to do a miniseries,” he said. “It’s exciting. I probably shouldn’t say too much about it except that I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.”

Reznor will team up with producers Lawrence Bender—who has previously worked on Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and An Inconvenient Truth—and Kevin Kelly Brown (Roswell) for the series.
