Funding Asimov’s “Foundation”

Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation” series is one of the most respected and enjoyed works in science fiction.  For several years now, a number of entertainment companies have secured rights for or at least talked about developing the series into a movie or television series.  Now, it has changed hands again.

I believe I mentioned in the last year or so that HBO was attempting to develop the material into a series.  It looks now like that did not happen.  Instead, BleedingCool reports — as does SciencFiction that Skydance Television is close to finalizing a deal with David Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) to adapt the novels for a television series.  No word yet as to whether Skydance has obtained rights from the estate or made a deal with a television network or streaming service.

If you haven’t read even the first novel of the “Foundation” series, and you have any interest in science fiction, I recommend giving it a try.
