There’s always some trepidation when a favourite artist moves into a new medium. Just as many great music video directors have made dreadful movies and songwriters aren’t necessarily the best poets, not all novelists do a great job of writing for the big screen.
But I have such faith in Douglas Coupland, that there’s nothing but enthusiasm in my response to the news that he’s shopping a TV series, Extinction Event:
a new science fiction series described as being in the vein of Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lost. The pilot has been written and production is moving ahead now.
