Frank Schaetzing’s eco-thriller The Swarm coming to TV

Deadline reports that author Frank Schaetzing‘s eco-thriller The Swarm is being developed into a TV drama. Producer Frank Doelger (Game of Thrones) is adapting the novel for the small screen, which is slated to start production sometime in 2019.

Schaetzing gave the following statement about the development. “The question about a possible film adaptation of The Swarm was the one I was most frequently asked about. Every time my answer was: deadlock. Who would have thought that the ideal team would come together after all, that visionary TV producers and pro-players including Game of Thrones creative force Frank Doelger would come on board to steer this large-scale international TV series, which is the strongest narrative form one could adapt an adventure like The Swarm into. It’s full steam ahead from now on. I’m very excited and looking forward to this collaboration.”

Doelger also commented, comparing the fantasy world of Game of Thrones with our current environmental climate. “After having spent eight seasons in the mythical world of Game of Thrones, it is great to return to the present with The Swarm and its searing exploration of the impending doom brought about by man’s callous disregard of the oceans, a doomsday scenario as dire as anything imagined by George R.R. Martin.

Doelger and Schaetzing will serve as Executive Producers alongside Eric Welbers. This is the first drama project to come out of Doelger’s nascent Intaglio Films, a new German TV production company aiming to produce English-language dramas for the international market.
