The event series is based on James’ book, which was published in 2011, and is a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller and family drama set in the world of genetically-engineered children who, as they hit puberty, are revealed to be not as “perfect” as their designers had intended.
Hasak will serve as showrunner and executive producer of the international co-production, which is planned to shoot in the UK. It will be produced in association with German firm Leonine, the Kkr-backed business that brought together Tele München Group, Universum Film, i&u TV, Wiedemann & Berg Film and W&b TV.
It is the latest international series for the Netherlands-born, Israeli-raised Hasak. He is currently working with Viaplay, which is run by Nordic Entertainment Group,
