Starring and executive produced by Academy Award Winner Rami Malek, the popular podcast series “Blackout“ is getting a small screen adaptation, Deadline reports this week.
David Bruckner (The Night House) is on board to direct the TV series adaptation, Deadline has announced today. Bruckner has previously directed The Signal, the “Amateur Night” segment in our V/H/S, the segment “The Accident” in our Southbound, and monster movie The Ritual. Bruckner is also working on our upcoming V/H/S/94, which is coming soon.
Deadline notes, “Season two of the apocalyptic thriller will be released early this summer with Malek reprising his role of Simon Itani, a small-town radio DJ fighting to protect his family and community after the power grid goes down nationwide, upending modern civilization.”
The “Blackout” adaptation will come from Chernin Entertainment, Endeavor Content and QCode. Rami Malek will executive produce the series, which doesn’t yet have a home.
