When it comes to genre TV, few have as impressive as CV as Buffy, Firefly, and Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon. And now the Avengers Assemble director is developing a new TV series.
HBO has moved to announce a new sci-fi show called The Nevers, which Whedon will serve as writer, director, showrunner, and executive producer on.
In terms of plot details, The Nevers will be a sci-fi drama based on a gang of Victorian women who develop unusual powers and abilities. Whedon has labelled the show as “maybe the most ambitious narrative I’ve created.”
HBO’s President of Programming Casey Bloys enthused, “We have long been fans of the incredibly talented and prolific Joss Whedon and we can’t think of a better project than The Nevers with which to welcome him to the BO family. We look forward to meeting the strange, multifaceted characters, to learn their stories, see them in action and share them with our viewers.”
As ever, expect more on The Nevers as we get it.
