Can Trent Reznor’s TV Show Save HBO?

Zero was a concept record about a dystopian future in which George W. Bush declares himself dictator for life, drugs the American water supply, and wages war on subversives (industrial musicians are too subversives!). Its accompanying viral-marketing campaign was spooky, complex, and reasonably well thought out (read more here), though who knows if it can actually sustain its own TV show. Quentin Tarantino partner Lawrence Bender is producing, so maybe this thing really does have some potential. Here's hoping HBO passes so AMC can pick it up and turn it into the next Greatest Show of All Time.
