A new TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves’ fantasy and science fiction novel InterWorld is being developed.
Published in 2007, InterWorld follows the story of Joey Harker who, together with a group of other Joeys from different Earths in other parallel universes (some of whom are older or younger, a different gender, and a different species), must try to stop the two forces of magic and science from taking over all of the Earths in different universes.
The novel was previously optioned by DreamWorks Animation to be made it into an animated feature film in June 2007.
Variety reports that Universal Cable Productions, the makers of USA’s Mr. Robot and Syfy’s The Magicians, is now working on a TV series, with Gaiman and Reaves as executive producers, alongside Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller and Flody Suarez.
Dawn Olmstead, EVP Development, Universal Cable Productions commented: “UCP continues to expand our genre slate and collaborate with luminaries from the world of graphic novels and science fiction. We’re proud and fortunate to be partnering with some of the most imaginative and talented auteurs in the business.”
The new season of Doctor Who began filming in Cardiff last month and Gaiman has previously revealed that he is keen to return: “Now I’m just sort of hoping that I can get one done while Peter Capaldi is still the Doctor, because it would be a very sad thing if I lost my chance to write for a grumpy, Scottish Doctor.”
