It seems that with the success of "The Handmaid's Tale," Canadian author Margaret Atwood has, seemingly overnight, become one of the hottest authors in Hollywood; or at least her PA novels have.

Anonymous Content and Paramount Television have hatched a deal to bring Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy to the small screen. The best selling series includes the books "Oryx and Crake," "The Year of the Flood," and "MaddAddam."

The series unfolds in the aftermath of a global pandemic and follows a few of the last survivors.

The series centers on Jimmy, a young boy disillusioned with the all-powerful corporations who rule civilization, whose best friend will develop the drug that wipes out humanity; Toby and Ren, two members of the cult "God's Gardeners" who fight to survive on the margins of society; and Zeb, one of the founders of "God's Gardeners."

It's early days yet but Anonymous Content has a great TV track record so far, including QE faves "Mr. Robot," "The OA," "The Knick" and "True Detective" so needless to say, we're expecting some good things from this partnership.

I guess I should probably clear the dust from my copy of "Oryx and Crake" which been sitting on my shelf unread since the mid-2000's.
