Ascendant - Divergent Franchise Adaptation in Development at Starz

EXCLUSIVE: A major title in Lionsgate’s movie library is eying a TV series adaptation at the company’s new subsidiary, Starz, I have learned that Starz is developing Ascendant, a drama TV series based on the Summit/Lionsgate movie franchise.

The project, which is in early stages, is being written/executive produced by Adam Cozad (Tarzan, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and directed/executive produced by Lee Toland Krieger (The Age Of Adaline). The two were previously attached to write and direct Ascendant when it was envisioned as a feature and fourth installment in the Divergent film series.

There are no details about the Ascendant TV series at Starz. It is unclear whether the cast from the movie, led by Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Ansel Elgor, would appear on the series though that is considered a possibility as a way to wrap their characters’ story and jumpstart the series. Reps for Starz and Liosngate TV declined comment.
