TV Drama Based on Naughty Dog's THE LAST OF US Gets an Official Series Order From HBO
WarnerMedia has some fantastic news for fans of Naughty Dog's classic The Last of Us, as the long-awaited TV drama based on the award-winning PlayStation 3–exclusive game has been given a series order by HBO.
The highly anticipated TV adaptation will be executive produced by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl, The Huntsman: Winter's War), Neil Druckmann (The Last of Us Part II, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End), Carolyn Strauss (Chernobyl, Game of Thrones), Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells, and PlayStation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan.
Druckmann is not the only well-known creator working on HBO's The Last of Us who also helped bring the original game (and its follow-up) to life, as the TV drama will be scored by the great Gustavo Santaolalla.
According to Druckmann, HBO's The Last of Us will feature at least several strong female characters, as the TV show will shine a new light on the tragic story of Ellie, Riley, Tess, Marlene, and Maria. Obviously, the beloved Joel will also play a major role in the upcoming TV adaptation of Naughty Dog’s greatest creation.
Although HBO Max has been struggling to attract subscribers for a good while now, fans of WarnerMedia's streaming service should be happy to hear that The Last of Us will be available on both HBO and HBO Max.
