Alan Taylor To Helm The Swarm Series

“Thor: The Dark World” helmer Alan Taylor is set to direct the English-language environmental drama series “The Swarm” for New Line, Intaglio Films, Beta Film and ZDF Enterprises.

Based on a 2004 novel by Frank Schaetzing, the story follows a global group of scientists and military personnel who discover that we are not the only intelligent species on this planet – and that deep down at the bottom of the sea resides a collective intelligence which has suffered the ravages of civilization on its habitat and has decided to fight back.

Taylor, who is currently directing “The Sopranos” film prequel for New Line, has previously helmed episodes of numerous series including “Game of Thrones,” “The Sopranos,” “Deadwood,” “Lost” and “Boardwalk Empire”.

Frank Doelger will executive produce which is expected to be one of the biggest and largest scale European series ever made.
