Paramount, getting super meta, will turn The Truman Show into an actual TV show.
For those fearing the dystopian nightmare of a movie studio purchasing a baby and then filming it in secret for the entirety of its life – as predicted in Peter Weir’s weirdly prescient social satire – don’t panic: the TV show would, of course, be more like the movie than the program within it.
Don’t expect it in the immediate future, however. According to The Wrap, it’s just one of several new series being developed by Paramount TV, a new department intent on creating content for broadcast, cable and online outlets.
So, in the meantime, start selecting your new Truman. Would Jim Carrey be up for returning back to the world of Seahaven?
