Remember BUGS? Mid to late 1990s prime time action/adventure/science fiction series starring Jayne Griffiths and Craig McLachlan?
Well writer / script executive of BUGS, Colin Brake, is developing a TV series from the post-apocalyptic teen fantasy Kymiera novels.
Colin Break is developing the series for B7 Media.
B7 Media is multi award-winning independent producer with an international track record in developing, packaging and producing content and formats for radio, television, film and digital platforms (SKY, BBC, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra, Audible/Amazon, Content Media, UKTV, SPACE, Eastlink TV and Syfy Channel).
Andrew Mark Sewell, B7’s Executive Producer says: “I’ve long been an admirer of Steve Turnbull’s writing; he’s a prodigious talent who’s really tapped into the teenage psyche to deliver a thought-provoking near-future thriller.”
USA Today bestselling author, Steve Turnbull, says: “Having put so much of myself into the book, I was delighted when B7 agreed to pick it up. Kymiera is a very complex story and it needs a production company that understand how to bring stories like this to fruition. Kymiera couldn’t be in safer hands.”
Brake says: “As a lifelong fan of the genre and a lover of powerful writing wherever I find it, I’m delighted to be working with B7 and Steve to realise Kymiera as a bold and exciting television drama series. Together we will bring Steve’s unique dystopian vision to the screen with passion, intelligence and heart – a truly original 21st century thriller.”
The book series Kymiera was created by speculative fiction writer Steve Turnbull.
