'Brave New World': Kylie Bunbury To Star With Demi Moore In Utopian Drama Series Based On 1932 Novel

June 21 2019

Kylie Bunbury, Hannah John-Kamen and Demi Moore have been added to the sprawling ensemble of the upcoming utopian drama series, Brave New World.

Set at USA Network from Amblin and Universal Content Productions, it is based on the 1932 novel of the same name.

Alden Ehrenreich, Jessica Brown Findlay, Harry Lloyd, Sen Mitsuji, Joseph Morgan and Nina Sosanya also star.

The official description reads: Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself. As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London. John's arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions. The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning.

The series will be executive produced by David Wiener and Grant Morrison, along with Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television. Brian Taylor will executive produce on the first episode. Wiener will also serve as series showrunner. Owen Harris (Black Mirror: San Junipero, Black Mirror: Striking Vipers) will direct the first two episodes and executive produce the series.

Bunbury is coming off a turn as a regular in Ava DuVernay's critically-acclaimed Netflix miniseries When They See Us. She's perhaps most known for her leading role in the short-lived but cult-favorite Fox series, Pitch. John-Kamen, who starred in last year's Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp, will return for the final season of Syfy's Killjoys next month.
