The Last of Us being adapted into HBO TV series
A television adaptation of The Last of Us, the post-apocalyptic survival franchise from PlayStation studio Naughty Dog, is in the works at HBO, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The project is intended to be a TV series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is being led by Craig Mazin, who previously worked with HBO on the acclaimed 2019 miniseries Chernobyl and is writing the upcoming Borderlands movie. Mazin will team up with Naughty Dog vice president Neil Druckmann, co-director and writer of both The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part 2, to write and executive-produce the TV show.
Naughty Dog president Evan Wells will also serve as an executive producer, alongside veteran HBO producer Carolyn Strauss. The TV series will be the first one from Sony Interactive Entertainment’s film and TV group, PlayStation Productions, which is co-producing with Sony Pictures Television, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
