Storyoscopic Films has optioned Star Trek producer Roddenberry Entertainment’s Holoscape sci-fi project to develop as a TV series. The project will be a co-production between Storyoscopic Films and Roddenberry Entertainment, with Jump! Creative also producing.
Like the original Star Trek and its progeny, Holoscape is envisioned as a television program with international appeal, driven by strong diversity in its cast, characters and scope. The series is set in the aftermath of World War 3 and the collapse of civilization. Using a mysterious device from the war, a powerful artifact called the Holoscape, a group of young survivors discover that they are part of a conspiracy that has shaped the destiny of humankind, but are given the chance to escape their present and save our future.
Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth executive produce for Roddenberry Entertainment, Marcus Englefield, George Lee and Brent Baum for Storyoscopic Films, and Doug Triconi for Jump! Creative.
“Storyoscopic holds a unique place in the industry due to its strong ties to China and the International Market,” said Trevor Roth, Head of Development for Roddenberry Entertainment. “That, along with its sense for strong properties and compelling stories, makes them a perfect collaborator for a global concept like ‘Holoscape.’”
Marcus Englefield of Storyoscopic Films added, “From cast and locations, to stories and sensibilities, this property was made for international success. There is no more fitting a name than Roddenberry to create something with such planetary appeal, and there is no more fitting a concept than ‘Holoscape’ to bring Eastern and Western worlds together in this way.”
