Trent Reznor May Bring 'Dystopia' to the Small Screen

Trent Reznor, of Nine Inch Nails and How to Destroy Angels, plans to develop a dystopic, science fiction television series based on Nine Inch Nails’ rather Orwellian LP Year Zero (2007). Reznor recently composed the score for the film The Social Network, but this latest news seems more fitting and purposeful; it is more aligned with Reznor’s personal artistic vision. 


Also, Reznor has, in fact, professed that Year Zero was more of a score instead of a conventional record. That said, this project should be a true challenge:  it is one thing to compose a score for a film and quite another to translate a score into a decent, compelling TV series. And if the pathetic trailer to the album and the tired and trite “Survivalism” video are indicative of anything that might occur visually in this series, Reznor is a lost soul indeed.
