Damon Lindelof And Matt Reeves Will Produce A Magical Medical Drama For HBO Max
The showrunner behind Watchmen and the director of The Batman are coming together to produce a new, decidedly non-superheroic drama for HBO Max.
Damon Lindelof and Matt Reeves are teaming up to produce a "magical-realistic medical drama" for HBO Max, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The series will reportedly be called The Human Conditions and follow a young British doctor who "must learn to treat impossible, fantastical illnesses by healing the emotional issues that underlie them--and confronting her own along the way." Oscar Sharp will write and direct in addition to executive producing the show. Sharp's resume is still rather short, but he's best known for the short film The Karman Line, which he wrote and directed, and for directing Sunspring, a 2016 short film written by an AI trained on science fiction scripts.
Lindelof and Reeves will join Sharp in executive producing the series. Lindelof is best known as the showrunner behind Lost, the Leftovers, and HBO's 2019 Watchmen series. Reeves, meanwhile, directed Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Warner Bros.' superhero film The Batman, which releases next year. Reeves is also executive producing the upcoming Batman: Caped Crusader animated series, alongside J.J. Abrams and Batman: The Animated Series creator Bruce Timm. Also producing on the show are Daniel Pipski, Rafi Crohn, Tanya Seghatchian, and John Woodward.
