The Immortality Key Being Adapted for TV


Stone Village Television has acquired the rights to Brian Muraresku’s New York Times best-selling book The Immortality Key: The Secret History of the Religion with No Name.

Stone Village plans to produce an epic multi-part TV series, described as “Game of Thrones but with psychedelics.” Based on more than a decade of research, the story reconstructs the suppressed history of psychedelics and their connection to the discovery of God—from psychedelic beer in 6th-century BC to psychedelic wine of ancient Greece.

“Beyond its focus on psychedelics, Brian’s book is one of the best pieces of writing on ancient Greece and early Christianity,” said Scott Steindorff, founder of Stone Village. “I have always been interested in this time period, but Brian’s unique and compelling way of sharing what many would consider to be dense facts, and the awesome characters we meet throughout his story, makes this, hands down, one of the best books on the subject. No doubt, this story is going to disrupt our system and all that we’ve known to be true.”

“In the years ahead, psychedelic plants and fungi will transform the way we think about medicine, spirituality, death, and the meaning of life itself. But this has all happened before. Today’s Psychedelic Renaissance is no tiny back-step to the halcyon days of the 1960s; it’s a time-bending back-flip into deep prehistory, classical antiquity, and the age of Christ. I spent my entire adult life in search of the real psychedelic rituals that gave birth to Western Civilization—epic people living epic lives in epic times. With advances in science and technology, their stories are finally rising from the ashes. Now, season after season of this television series can bring these forgotten characters and their universe back to life.”
