MaddAddam - TV Series In Development

Paramount Television and Anonymous Content are looking for the next Handmaid's Tale.

Hot on the critical and awards-season success of the Hulu adaptation, Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have won the bidding war for rights to author Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam book trilogy and plan to bring the series to the small screen. A network is not yet attached.

The trilogy, which consists of Oryx and Crake (2003), The Year of the Flood (2009) and MaddAddam (2013), tells a harrowing, cautionary and inspirational story of a global pandemic and the end of mankind. It follows a small group of survivors who are left to shepherd a new race to inherit the world. It centers on Jimmy, a boy disillusioned with the all-powerful corporations who rule civilization and whose best friend will develop the drug that wipes out humanity; Toby and Ren, two members of the cult "God’s Gardeners" who fight to survive on the margins of society; and Zeb, one of the founders of "God’s Gardeners."

Anonymous Content's David Kanter and Bard Dorros will exec produce the potential TV series alongside Rock Paper Scissors Entertainment's Angus Wall, Linda Carlson and Kent Kubena. MaddAddam is the first project under the first-look deal that the Amy Powell-led Paramount TV and Anonymous Content signed with Rock Paper Scissors.
