HBO, Tandem Communications and Scott Free Productions are developing an action-crime series to run on Cinemax. The one-hour series is "in the vein of Blade Runner/District 9" and "tracks the commander of a paramilitary unit who pursues a dangerous new race of genetically-enhanced humans." Criminal Minds's Simon Mirren will serve as exec-producer and showrunner for the project, from writer-creators Aaron Benay and Matthew Benay. Tandem is also behind Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth series, which also has a follow up series in the works with Scott Free, based on Follett's World Without End.

    Nice little article. I heard about Cinemax actually dropping up 'The Sector' and was pretty disappointed. I hope another network picks it up. Maybe it was that the script wasn't very strong or that Cinemax didn't feel they had room for it. Cinemax is working on so many new projects it's hard to keep up with. You can find previews and movie lineups at the new Cinemax site. Thanks to SOPHIA SAVAGE for the read.
