The upcoming Alien FX Series will be 8-10 hours long according to Ridley Scott. Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme today, Ridley Scott discussed his new film House of Gucci. He revealed a Blade Runner TV series pilot has been written and the new Alien show pilot is currently being written.
For both Blade Runner and Alien, an outline has been written of events that will happen throughout the 8-10 hours of them. That suggests we’ll be getting 8-10 episodes in the Alien FX series.
Here’s what the Alien Covenant director said:
“We’re already into, having written, the pilot for Blade Runner, and the bible. We’re already presenting Blade Runner as a TV Show which will probably be the first 10 hours and then Alien is a similar thing. Alien is now being written for Pilot. You also have to write the history of it – 8 hours or 10 hours – the bible of what happens in those 10 hours. Then if it goes on, like The Good Wife is mine and The Good Fight is mine – that’s been going 16 years.”
You can listen to the interview on the BBC website. He starts talking at 2h 23m.
The Alien FX Series is being helmed by Noah Hawley, known for his work on Legion and Fargo, and will take place in the near future on Earth. Filming is due to begin next year with a potential release in 2023.
