SF NOVEL AUSTRAL
TO BECOME SF TV SERIES
Award winning author Paul McAuley’s acclaimed science fiction novel AUSTRAL is getting an epic series adaptation from Circle of Confusion Television
Studios and ITV Studios’ Big Talk Productions according to Variety. It is an expansive drama set in Antarctica during the year 2098, decades after the melting glaciers have given way to a new frontier of resource rich land, and a generation of settlers from all around the dying world have converged there. But for Austral Ferrado, one of a number of “huskies,” or people who have been gene edited to better withstand the still unforgiving climate of the far south, this new Antarctica is no paradise. Trapped in a society that has imprisoned her and treated her kind more as animals than humans, Austral will stop at nothing to gain her freedom. Stay tuned for casting news.
