At the Walt Disney Companies Investor Day event earlier this week, FX Chairman John Landgraf announced that they are moving quickly to bring audiences the first television series based on one of the greatest science-fiction horror classics ever made: “Alien.”
The new Alien series will be helmed by Fargo and Legion’s Noah Hawley stepping into the creator/executive producer chair, and FX is in advanced negotiations with Academy Award winner, Sir Ridley Scott—director of the first “Alien” film and the sequel, “Alien: Covenant”—to join the project as an Executive Producer.
Set not too far into our future, it’s the first Alien story set on Earth—and by blending both the timeless horror of the first “Alien” film with the non-stop action of the second, it’s going to be a scary thrill ride that will blow people back in their seats.
This new FX series will be coming to Hulu in the United States under the “FX on Hulu” originals brand and internationally on Disney+ via its new Star brand.
The series is being produced by FXP.
