Frederik Pohl\’s Gateway

Frederik Pohl, who died last year at the age of 93, was a prolific author of science fiction and a writer whose ideas still resonate today. That resonance is just one of the reasons that his 1977 novel Gateway 1 has been the subject of frantic bidding by TV production companies.

It would seem that the bidding has now stopped with the winning parties being Entertainment One Television and the De Laurentiis Company, who between them have production credits for Conan the Barbarian, Dune, Hell on Wheels and The Walking Dead. The companies are in the process of hiring a writer/showrunner for the project, which is still in its very early stages.
