HBO Max working with J.J. Abrams on new sci-fi series
UPI News Service, 02/19/2021
HBO Max said Friday it has ordered a new series called Subject to Change, based on an original story from writer-director-producer J.J. Abrams.
Jennifer Yale will be executive producer and showrunner on the series about "a desperate college student who signs up for a clinical trial that begins a wild, harrowing, mind and reality-bending adventure," the streaming service said.
Yale was a producer on Legion and Outlander, and a writer for Dexter.
No casting has been announced for Subject to Change.
"It's been incredible fun weaving this rather insane yarn with Jenn, and I am grateful to her and everyone at HBO Max for the opportunity to bring this story to life," Abrams said in a press release.
Abrams' credits include Lovecraft Country, Westworld, Lost, Alias and the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises.
