HBO Max has ordered a series based on an original concept by J.J. Abrams, with Jennifer Yale (Legion, Dexter) attached as showrunner. The title is a play on words, with the plot following a college student taking part as a subject in a clinical trial.
“This series follows a desperate college student who signs up for a clinical trial that begins a wild, harrowing, mind and reality-bending adventure,” the official synopsis reads. The show is set to be produced by J.J. Abrams’ company Bad Robot in association with Warner Bros. TV, with Bad Robot’s Ben Stephenson and Rachel Rusch Rich attached as executive producer and co-executive producer respectively.
“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 about the project.
