HBO Max has ordered a new thriller series based upon an original idea by Bad Robot’s JJ Abrams.
Subject To Change is being produced by Bad Robot in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams and showrunner Jennifer Yale will executive produce, alongside Ben Stephenson, while Rachel Rusch Rich will co-executive produce.
The series follows a desperate college student who signs up for a clinical trial that begins a wild, harrowing, mind and reality-bending adventure.
“It’s been incredible fun weaving this rather insane yarn with Jenn, and I am grateful to her and everyone at HBO Max for the opportunity to bring this story to life,” said Abrams.
“I have felt so privileged to work with JJ and Bad Robot on expanding J.J.’s exhilarating story to create a twisty, thought-provoking thriller where almost anything is possible and yet everything is planned, commented Yale.
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, added: “We cannot wait to bring this complex, eye-opening thriller to HBO Max. It will take viewers on an unexpected ride, showcasing the creative brilliance of JJ, Jennifer and the Bad Robot team.”
Abrams helped to co-create mystery thriller hits including Lost and Fringe, while Yale has served as producer on Chambers, Outlander and Legion, while also writing for Dexter and serving as story editor on Da Vinci’s Demons.
