Zachary Quinto

Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto is going from science fiction to science fact. The actor will both star in and executive-produce Biopunk, an hour drama based on Wired magazine tech writer Marcus Wohlsen’s book, Biopunk: DIY Scientists Hack the Software of Life, our sister site Deadline reports.

The Heroes alumnus will play the rebel-rousing leader of a group of guerilla scientists striving to become, in essence, the Steve Jobs of biotech.

“The minute I was introduced to the world of Marcus’ book,” said series creator/writer Chase Palmer (who also co-penned the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s It), “I knew immediately this edgy, activist, kick-down-the-walls subculture of citizen scientists was my way in to telling a bigger canvas story about the next great technological evolution no one knows is coming but will change everything: hacking life.”
