Foundation Created by David S. Goyer
The Isaac Asimov Foundation novels were considered as impossible to adapt for television or for a movie. As one of the most beloved science fiction tales, the story was too vast and broad to make it a reality on screen due to its enormous, size, scale, scope, and imagination. Then again, series creator David S. Goyer likes to take on those impossible tasks.
Here’s the synopsis:
Based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, Foundation is a thrilling and emotional epic saga that chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save the fate of humanity amid the fall of the Galactic Empire. When revolutionary mathematician Hari Seldon predicts the impending demise of the Empire, he and his loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Seldon’s claims, the ruling Cleons—a long line of Emporer clones—fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening as they become forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.
The main cast includes Emmy Award nominees Jared Harris and Lee Pace, alongside rising stars Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey. The drama also stars Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton, and Alfred Enoch. David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) is the visionary showrunner and executive producer.
