After wishing his audience a “good afternoon, good evening and goodnight,” Truman Burbank is ready to wish you “good morning” again.
The Wrap reports that Paramount’s new television division is planning a slew of new shows based on their movie catalogue, including one possible series inspired by The Truman Show. The Jim Carrey-starring drama focused on a young man who lived in the same town for his entire life — without ever realizing that the whole experience was fabricated and documented as a reality television project.
A television show about a movie about a television show — that’s some meta-level development right there. Given the right creative team and talent attached, a Truman Show TV series could actually be worth exploring.
Beyond The Truman Show, Paramount is also reportedly looking into making a new series based on the Terminator films. If it moves forward, this would mark the second live-action Terminator series following Fox’s ill-fated Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, starring Lena Headey and Summer Glau.
