Hulu has partnered with Carlton Cuse (Locke & Key) and Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman) in adapting Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.
A British popular culture staple, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy originated as a comedy radio series and became a hugely successful series of novels that has been translated into more than 30 languages and has become essential reading for high school students around the world.
The series follows the intergalactic adventures of Arthur Dent, a hapless Englishman, following the destruction of Earth by the Vogons, a race of unpleasant and bureaucratic aliens.
Cuse and Fuchs will write, executive produce and act as showrunners for the proposed series, a modern updating of the classic story now in development at Hulu via ABC Signature and Cuse’ Genre Arts. Fuchs is writing the pilot script.
