The Subjugate Novel Being Adapted for TV


Aquarius Films and Anonymous Content have teamed up to produce the sci-fi crime thriller series The Subjugate, based on the novel of the same name written by Amanda Bridgeman.

Aquarius Films acquired the development and production rights to The Subjugate novel, set in 2040 as a series of murders sends shockwaves through the religious community of Bountiful, which has turned its back on technology and the modern world.

The long-format series will be produced by Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford for Aquarius Films and Luke Rivett and Ryan Cunningham for Anonymous Content.

Fielder and Staniford said: “The Subjugate explores topical themes of rehabilitation, recidivism and advancing technology in a captivating near-future science fiction thriller and is perfect raw material for a compelling TV series. We’ve always been huge fans of the work that Anonymous Content produce and are thrilled to be partnering with Luke and Ryan to bring to life the rich and complex world that Amanda Bridgeman has created in her novels.”
