  • Apple Gives Series Order to Sci-Fi Drama Based on Isaac Asimov’s ‘Foundation’

After years of false starts, both at the movies and on TV, Isaac Asimov's Foundation just got a 10-episode, direct-to-series order from Apple, according to Deadline. The series is being produced by Skydance Television, and Skydance CEO David Ellison will be an executive producer for the series (he is the son of famed Oracle executive Larry Ellison).

Goyer's credits include co-writing the upcoming Terminator reboot as well as the The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, Ghost Rider and the Blade franchises and Syfy's Krypton series, while Friedman's include Avatar 2, the War of the Worlds remake and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Foundation takes place over more than a thousand years, and the story tracks a group of exiles who are fighting against the Galactic Empire in order to save it.

Robyn Asimov, the great Isaac Asimov's daughter, will also serve as one of the executive producers. It is a highly influential work of science fiction; its impact can be felt in Star Wars, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and many other sci-fi films, books, and video games. The trilogy had been tried numerous times as a feature film at Fox, Warner Bros. and then at Sony. HBO even attempted to make it a series.

Apple landed the project in April.

Skydance's growing roster of TV series includes Netflix's "Grace & Frankie" and "Altered Carbon", Amazon's "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan", Audience Network's "Condor", and AMC's "Dietland".
