HULU TO DEVELOP TWO TV SERIES OUT OF GEORGE R.R. MARTIN EDITED SCIENCE FICTION 27 BOOK ANTHOLOGY WILD CARDS

    'WILD CARDS' TO BE
 TURNED INTO SF SERIES AT HULU
The saga will be adapted into two sf series
I'm a bit late with this one, but Hulu is apparently very close to producing two sf series based on WILD CARDS sf anthology edited by George R.R. Martin and written by a collection of authors as a shared universe of anthologies, mosaic novels and stand alone stories! As Hollywood Reporter states, there have been 27 books so far!
  
Set in the present, the series explores the aftermath of an alien virus, released over Manhattan in 1946 that killed 90 percent of those it infected. In the survivors, DNA was altered, creating grotesque physical deformities, except for a tiny percentage who develop super human powers
Andrew Miller will write the series!
instead. Called the Wild Card virus, it has passed down through generations, and can go undetected until suddenly activated by a traumatic event — at which point the carrier is either killed, mutated or granted god-like powers. Effects that are largely a manifestation of the victim's emotional state, making them vulnerable to reverence or ridicule on a deeply personal level. Now, after decades of sociological turmoil, having been worshipped, oppressed, exploited and ignored, victims of the virus want to define their own future. The Secret Circles Andrew Miller is set to write the series which is looking to open writers' rooms!

  1. It seems Hulu is really upping their game where original series are concerned. It sounds like this could be a pretty big hit for those who like SF.

  2. The Wild Cards universe has its fans all over the world and they are probably excited with the news of a TV adaptation to the famous SF anthology.

    Not a conventional fantasy show.
    It sounds like a combination of stories that will ultimately affect one another.
    Anyway, Good Luck to this TV series!

  4. I wonder if his readers are irritated that he's got these other projects going but hasn't finished the Game of Thrones series.

  5. The Wild Card virus sounds intriguing.

    Very interesting that the editor's name is larger than the title of the movie on that poster. A little ego there?
