With Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant now in cinemas and firmly splitting opinion (you can find our thoughts here), Sir Ridley has just announced an interesting new project for himself.

Now whilst Scott has talked of two, three or even four more Alien films over the past few months, he’s now also turned his attention to the small screen as the legendary director has revealed that he’s accepted an offer to develop a whole block of new sci-fi content for the TNT network.

In a statement, Scott enthused, “Being given the creative license to generate and develop science fiction programming in a variety of formats for TNT is very exciting. This genre is one of my favorites, and there are an infinite amount of original and innovative story ideas out there that we are looking forward to exploring with TNT. It is very exciting for all of us.”

From TNT’s side, Sarah Aubrey added, “We’re looking to create a programming block filled with the kind of imaginative, awe-inspiring storytelling that has made science fiction such a beloved and enduring genre. Ridley Scott has created some of the best and most popular science fiction movies of all time, and we look forward to bringing his fans even more of his smart, sophisticated stories.”

The early word is that Ridley will be developing a night full of original sci-fi material for TNT, with the block designed to be a showcase for hour-long shows and short-form efforts.

As ever, expect more on all of this as we get it.
