Atrium TV has announced four high-end dramas it currently has in advanced development. The new slate has just been offered to select production companies and networks who will soon decide if they want to invest. The four series are:
“Silo”: Michael Douglas produces this violent drama set in a future San Francisco. Diminished resources and overpopulation have led to ultimate gated communities called ‘silos’. Peter Horton and Raelle Tucker have penned.
“The Last Amazon”: Filmmaker Ava DuVernay produces this epic historical series from “Narcos” producers Gene Stein and Gaumont. Written by Rafe Judkins, the character-driven series will focus on the great Amazon Queens such as Antiope and Hippolyta and portray their loves and major battles including their campaign against the Ancient Greeks.
“A Dry Run: The Lincolns In Spain”: A six-part mini series from “The Wire” creator David Simon and set during the Spanish Civil War. The true story tale will follow those who went to fight fascism in Spain in the years prior to World War II, including America’s Abraham Lincoln Battalion.
“Doctor Zhivago”: An eight-part series from “Sherlock” producers Hartswood Films along with “Riviera” producer Foz Allan and “Vikings” producer Michael First with the latter adapting Boris Pasternak’s classic novel of sweeping political drama and romance for a contemporary audience.
Two projects from Atrium’s first slate, “Quasimodo” and “One Giant Leap,” are heading into production and will shoot later this year.
