Trent Reznor revealed that he is working on a mini-series with HBO and BBC America called Year Zero, which is based on music he wrote with Nine Inch Nails about his frustration with George Bush.
“We are in pre-production with HBO and BBC America to do a miniseries. It’s exciting. I probably shouldn’t say too much about it except that I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.”
Reznor is paired up with a great team, including Lawrence Bender, known for producing Quentin Tarantino films such as Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, and Reservoir Dogs as well as the documentaries An Inconvenient Truth and Countdown to Zero, and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was executive producer on Roswell.
This sounds interesting. We’re looking forward to seeing how a musician can handle himself creating a TV show.
