As pilot season looms ever closer, information on new series coming to our TV sets is starting to come out. The Illuminerdi has recently learned one of these projects currently in development is an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s short story, The Martian Chronicles, with James Gunn currently set as an Executive Producer and Director.

 

The Martian Chronicles details the colonization of Mars as humans flee a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and eventually delves into the conflict between the aboriginal Martians and the planet’s new colonists.

 

The series is in development at Civic Center Media, as a joint venture between UTA and Valence Media. Little information is currently known about the series outside of its status as “in development”. With James Gunn currently busy filming The Suicide Squad for DC and Warner Bros, then eventually going to work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it’s hard to say where The Martian Chronicles will fit into his schedule.

 

As the series is currently only in development, it’s impossible to say whether or not it will actually go to pilot or – beyond that – be greenlit for a full season. Something similar happened with Gunn’s reboot of Starsky and Hutch for Amazon, which never materialized. It’s also unknown what network or streaming service this may end up on.

The book was awesome!  I read most of Ray Bradbury's back many years ago.  The best book I read by him is "The Illustrated Man"..  
I'll definitely be checking this show out if it does come out.
