Dan Harmon is working on a new TV project. According to Variety, Harmon has teamed up with Evan Katz (Small Crimes) to develop a TV adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s 1959 novel The Sirens of Titan. Here’s the logline for the project:
UCP is also working on Sirens of Titan, with Dan Harmon (Rick & Morty) and Evan Katz (Small Crimes). The story follows Malachi Constant, the richest man in 22nd-century America. He possesses extraordinary luck which he attributes to divine favor and has used to build upon his father’s fortune. He becomes the center point of a journey that takes him from Earth to Mars in preparation for an interplanetary war, to Mercury with another Martian survivor of that war, back to Earth to be pilloried as a sign of Man’s displeasure with his arrogance, and finally to Titan where he again meets the man ostensibly responsible for the turn of events that have befallen him.
Harmon and Katz are developing the series for Universal Cable Productions. It’s unknown yet which network the show will call home, but past UCP productions have gone to USA, Syfy, Bravo, Hulu, and Seeso. In the meantime, the third season of Harmon’s Adult Swim series Rick and Morty is slated to premiere in just a little over a week.
