Year Zero

We’ve known for sometime that Trent’s been trying to take his apocalyptic vision of the future — Nine Inch Nails’ Year Zero LP — and transfer it onto the small screen. And reports are claiming he’s taking bigger steps towards making that goal a reality.

Reznor says the “Year Zero” show is making slow progress. “We are in pre-production with HBO and BBC America to do a miniseries,” he revealed. Fucking sweet, man! Maybe he’ll make new music to serve as the show’s soundtrack.

“It’s exciting,” he added. No shit it’s exciting. First “Boardwalk Empire,” now this? “I probably shouldn’t say too much about it except that I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.”

Reports claim Trent’s working Lawrence Bender, who has done everything, and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was executive producer on “Roswell.”
