Bad Robot’s Glare To Be Developed By HBO
The announcement comes in the wake of Westworld‘s well-received first season, encouraging HBO to continue exploring the science fiction genre as evidenced by the program’s renewal for a second season as well as its plans to work with Bad Robot.
Titled Glare, the project, now in development at the premium cable network, is written by Spanish feature writer Javier Gullón. It is a sci-fi odyssey exploring the colonization of another planet.
Gullón executive produces with Bad Robot’s Abrams and Ben Stephenson. Warner Bros. TV, where Bad Robot is based, is the studio; it also is behind HBO/Bad Robot’s Westworld.
Glare stems from a blind deal Bad Robot signed with Gullón a year ago. He had been identified by Bad Robot’s head of TV Stephenson, who developed the project based on an original idea by the writer.
Gullón, who has multiple produced features overseas, drew Hollywood attention recently with his dramatic thriller spec script 478, which was made with Arnold Schwarzenegger starring and E/F/O, Protozoa and Peter Dealbert producing for release next year.
