- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will reportedly be turned into a TV show for Hulu.
- Carlton Cuse (Lost) will act as showrunner, while Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman) will write the pilot.
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was previously made into a radio show, novel, and movie.
A new TV series based on Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is reportedly in the works. According to Deadline, an adaptation of the sci-fi comedy has been ordered, with Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman) allegedly involved.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was popularized in the late 1970s, early 1980s, when it debuted as a radio series on BBC Radio 4. It was so popular that it was quickly made into a novel and then ordered for a second season by BBC.
After a TV series from BBC in 1980, the property was made into a feature film in 2005. Unfortunately, the film was met with a tepid response from critics and fans, and now here we are. But with geek culture more popular than ever, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy feels like the perfect story to turn into a bingeable series for streaming audiences.
Deadline's report doesn't say when the show will hit Hulu, nor does it say who's being considered to star. The film had a terrific cast, but the chances of them coming back are probably zero.
