Apple TV+ Orders Neuromancer TV Adaptation


Apple TV+ has ordered a ten-episode TV adaptation of William Gibson’s cyberpunk novel Neuromancer.

With Graham Roland (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Dark Winds) and JD Dillard (Devotion, The Outsider, Sleight) attached to adapt the story, the series will follow a damaged top super-hacker who is thrust into a web of digital espionage and high-stakes crime with his partner, a “razorgirl” assassin with mirrored eyes.

The Apple TV+ series is being co-produced by Skydance Television and Anonymous Content, as well as Drake’s DreamCrew Entertainment. Roland is serving as showrunner, and Dillard is set to direct the pilot episode.

Executive producers are Roland and Dillard; David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Matt Thunell for Skydance Television; Anonymous Content; Drake, Adel ‘Future’ Nur and Jason Shrier for DreamCrew Entertainment; Zack Hayden; and author Gibson.

“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing this iconic property to Apple TV+,” said Roland and Dillard. “Since we became friends nearly ten years ago, we’ve looked for something to team up on, so this collaboration marks a dream come true. Neuromancer has inspired so much of the science fiction that’s come after it, and we’re looking forward to bringing television audiences into Gibson’s definitive cyberpunk world.”
