Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil company is teaming with producer Gudrun Giddings on “The Secret World,” a television series based on the 2012 MMO game of the same name.
The story follows a team of undercover agents and the shadowy war between secret societies: the Illuminati, Dragon and the Templar. Central to the plot is their battle against the supernatural in an adventure that spans across our world, and blends myths, legends, conspiracy theories and headline news.
James V. Hart (“Hook,” “Crossbones”), Jake Hart, and former “CSI: NY” showrunner Pam Veasey are penning the adaptation which has Veasey on board as showrunner. Depp, Giddings, Veasey, Christi Dembrowski and Sam Sarkar will produce.
