USA Network has given a straight-to-series order for an adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Based on Huxley’s 1932 novel, Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.

As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions. The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning.

The series was adapted for television by David Wiener, with Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor. Wiener and Morrison along with Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television, will executive produce. Taylor will executive produce on the first episode. Wiener will also serve as series showrunner. “Black Mirror: San Junipero” director Owen Harris will direct the first episode.
