Hollywood’s been trying to get a new live-action adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World off the ground for years, and it’s finally about to happen thanks to the USA Network, surprisingly.

Today, The Hollywood Reporter says the network announced that Fear the Walking Dead producer David Wiener has signed on to write and showrun the 10-episode-long first season that’s set to film in the U.K. Black Mirror: San Junipero’s Owen Harris is attached to direct. Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor are also still attached.

While specific details about the series have yet to be announced, it’s likely to be a rather straightforward adaptation of Huxley’s classic story about a dystopian future in which society is strictly stratified, personal decisions about their bodied and emotions are regulated, and a disillusioned psychologist realises that he’s going through life keenly unfulfilled.

No premiere day yet but we’ll bring you more as we know it.
