Brave New World - Jessica Brown Findlay & Harry Lloyd to Star in Aldous Huxley Series

Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey, Harlots) and Harry Lloyd (Counterpart, Legion, Game Of Thrones) have been cast to star in the Aldous Huxley series adaptation, Brave New World, per Deadline.

Findlay and Lloyd will co-star opposite Alden Ehrenreich in the drama that was originally given a series order at USA Network (before being developed at Syfy) and is now being rumored as a launching series for the upcoming NBCU streaming service set to debut in 2020.

Deadline notes that the epic, expansive-scope series is rumored to be getting a budget of around $10 million an episode.

Based on Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking 1932 novel, Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.

As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard (Lloyd) and Lenina (Findlay) are rescued by John the Savage (Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions. The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning.

The arrival of John, a subversive outsider, in the New World, threatens to disrupt the stability of New London's utopian society.

Jessica Brown Findlay will play Lenina Crowne, a Beta Plus Hatchery worker, who has begun to question her position within the strict social strata of the New World.


Harry Lloyd will play Bernard Marx, an Alpha Plus who works as a counselor for The Bureau of Stability, administering Soma to the citizens of New London.


Brave New World hails from UCP and Amblin Television. David Wiener, Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor will pen the pilot. Wiener will serve as the showrunner. Wiener, Morrison, Amblin TV's Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey executive produce. Owen Harris (Black Mirror: San Junipero, The Twilight Zone, Troy: Fall of a City) will direct the pilot episode and executive produce the series.
