(en) Ursula K. Le Guin's The Dispossessed to Become TV Series

Date Wed, 13 Oct 2021 08:35:42 +0300


Variety has word that 1212 Entertainment and Anonymous Content are working together to adapt The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin to television. Theo Downes-Le Guin, son of the author, is also participating in the development process. ---- The 1974 novel that won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, The Dispossessed is the story of two worlds at odds after ages of distrust, and the work that must be done to bring them together in the wake of a great scientific discovery that changes both societies' understanding of the universe and their place within it.
It is a story that feels particularly relevant to the here and now, which both groups noted: 1212's Joshua Long and Roberto Grande noted "Ursula K. Le Guin's ‘The Dispossessed' has a visceral connection to the present and so accurately matches the world we're living in right now," and Anonymous Content's chief creative officer, David Levine added that the novel was "[...]a well-crafted exploration of the current schism in our society and can offer us a path of reconciliation without accusations, condescension, and judgement, one that is both escapist and thought-provoking at the same time."

There is no writer or network attached to the project as of yet, but the intention is to turn the book into a limited series. With any luck, we'll get to see Le Guin's "ambiguous utopia" on screen before long.
