J.J. Abrams Developing a “Mind-Bending” Thriller Series Titled “Subject to Change” for HBO Max

HBO Max continues adding alluring projects to their original slate with “Subject to Change,” a series announced by THR today that’s being developed for the streamer by J.J. Abrams.

THR details, “The drama follows a desperate college student who signs up for a clinical trial that begins a wild, harrowing, mind- and reality-bending adventure.”

Jennifer Yale (Legion, Outlander, Underground) has been set as the showrunner.

Abrams will write and executive produce via Bad Robot.

“It’s been incredible fun weaving this rather insane yarn with Jenn, and I am grateful to her and everyone at HBO Max for the opportunity to bring this story to life,” Abrams says.

Yale calls the project a “twisty, thought-provoking thriller where almost anything is possible,” while HBO Max promises “an unexpected ride” that showcases the team’s brilliance.
