AREA 51 TV Show Coming Soon
Posted by montoc1701 on July 31, 2012
For me Area 51 is one of those myths that just keeps on coming back for me and there is so much potential for storytelling here.
Published in May, Jacobsen’s book revolves around the famed military installation in the world that has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government and explores the myths about the area and those who believe that region is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems and nuclear facilities. Jacobsen interviewed 19 men who served on the base and additional servicemen who were employed there.
Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd is on board to executive produce with Todd E. Kessler (The Good Wife) attached to pen the script; Jacobsen will serve as a co-producer on the effort, which is in development. Hurd will produce through her production company, Valhalla Entertainment (which has a pod deal with Universal Cable Productions), with AMC Studios.
AMC’s entry will take place in the 1950s-1960s and will focus on those who work at the base and protect the country’s secrets — including the remains of the alleged alien crash at Roswell.
