Apple Greenlights New Sci-Fi Drama Series ‘Neuromancer’ Based On William Gibson Novel

February 28, 2024

Apple TV+ has greenlit the new science fiction series Neuromancer, a 10-episode drama based on William Gibson’s debut novel of the same name. A co-production between Skydance Television and Anonymous Content, Neuromancer will also be produced by Drake’s DreamCrew Entertainment.

Graham Roland (Tom Clancy’s Jack RyanDark Winds) and JD Dillard (DevotionThe Outsider) will develop the project for TV. Additionally, Roland will serve as showrunner and Dillard is set to direct the pilot episode.

The streamer reveals Neuromancer will follow a damaged, top-rung super-hacker named Case who is thrust into a web of digital espionage and high-stakes crime with his partner Molly, a razor-girl assassin with mirrored eyes, aiming to pull a heist on a corporate dynasty with untold secrets.

“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing this iconic property to Apple TV+,” creators and executive producers Graham Roland and JD Dillard said in a joint statement. “Since we became friends nearly ten years ago, we’ve looked for something to team up on, so this collaboration marks a dream come true. Neuromancer has inspired so much of the science fiction that’s come after it and we’re looking forward to bringing television audiences into Gibson’s definitive ‘cyberpunk’ world.”

Gibson’s novel Neuromancer received numerous accolades including the Nebula Award, the Philip K. Dick Award and the Hugo Award. The novel served as the first book in the Sprawl trilogy and was followed by Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive.
