YearZero may become HBO series

2008-08-11 by Oblivioncry | 24 Comments
Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has been in talks in with HBO about making a two-season maxi-series out of "Year Zero"

"It's the most exciting thing on the horizon, it's the thing that when I wake up in the morning it makes me say, 'God it would be cool if that happened," Reznor told me this week while sitting backstage before a Nails concert in Toronto. "This is my grand ambition. Will it happen? I don't know. It was fun sitting and telling [the HBO] guys and watching them shake their head and having writers on board and producers that are in to it. It's been a fun thing."

He considered a graphic novel. "That was the route we were going to go with initially. We talked to a different companies about releasing it. But it didn't feel quite right. We thought about a film, but that has a different timetable and too many people need to say yes. That wouldn't line up right. then I started thinking about how I could make it really interactive, something you experience rather than something you read."

The album sucked so I'm thinking HBO should say "NO" to this.

Year Zero was a pretty good album in it's own right, but this will very, very likely fail.This Message Edited On 08.11.08

im looking forward to this. hbo's output is consistently high quality, and what reznor needs for this is good production value.

When I first heard about this I prayed it would be on HBO if anything. Pretty exciting.

Yeah im so hyped that its gonna be on HBO. Rumours are that Quentin Tarentino's, main producer guy is involved. Should be breathtaking.
