Westworld tells the story “about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged”. If you’re a fan of the book or the movie, you’ll get a sense of what you’re getting into.
Jonthan Nolan is executive producer, writer and director, with Lisa Joy as executive producer/writer. J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk join them as executive producers. Some big names, erm, executive producing.
The first season of Westworld is set to last 10 episodes, and is set to debut on HBO in October this year, at the same time as the US.
You know, with Game Of Thrones ending next week, Westworld would have been perfect to continue with … but now, wait till October, then April for the next Game Of Thrones. Halp! Need more TV!
