Amazon greenlights The Peripheral series from Westworld creators

According to Deadline, Amazon Prime has officially given a series order to Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s forthcoming series adaptation of The Peripheral, based on author William Gibson’s bestselling sci-fi mystery thriller novel of the same name. The project is part of Nolan and Joy’s massive overall deal with the streaming service which they’ve signed earlier this year.

“We’re thrilled to announce The Peripheral as our first project with Jonah, Lisa, Athena and their talented team at Kilter Films,” Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke said.“This story calls for a masterful level of talent to bring acclaimed author William Gibson’s science fiction thriller to life. We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Television, Oscar-nominated writer Scott B. Smith and Vincenzo Natali in bringing this fantastic new series to our global Prime Video customers.”

The Peripheral will be an hour-long series that will follow the story of Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow’s America. Flynne is smart, ambitious, and doomed.  She has no future. Until the future comes calling for her. The Peripheral is master storyteller William Gibson’s dazzling, hallucinatory glimpse into the fate of mankind — and what lies beyond.

“35 years ago, William Gibson invented the future. With The Peripheral he brings us another look, and his vision is as clear, intoxicating, and terrifying as ever,” Nolan and Joy said in a joint statement. “All of us at Kilter are incredibly proud to be supporting Vincenzo and Scott’s brilliant vision for bringing Gibson’s work to the screen.”
