'Year Zero' has got the green light to become mini-series

Trent Reznor is working on a TV mini-series named Year Zero for HBO, based on Nine Inch Nails‘ 2007 album of the same name.

Pulp Fiction producer Lawrence Bender is on board with the project, as is Roswell executive producer Kevin Kelly Brown and writer Daniel Knauf. They are working with the BBC Worldwide Productions studio, reports the LA Times.

“We are in pre-production with HBO and BBC to do a mini-series,” Reznor confirmed. “It’s exciting… I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing.”

He added: “It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.”
