Damon Lindelof (“The Leftovers”), Matt Reeves (“The Batman”) and Oscar Sharp — who co-created the first film with a script entirely written by AI (“Sunspring”) — are teaming up to develop a fantastical medical drama for HBO Max. The magical-realist original series, titled “The Human Conditions,” follows a young British doctor that must treat impossible illnesses (and the emotional issues that underlie them). The show hails from Reeves’ 6th & Idaho production banner, Warner Bros. Television and Brightstar.
6th & Idaho’s Daniel Pipski and Rafi Crohn will executive produce alongside Lindelof, Reeves and Sharp, who is also writing and directing. Tanya Seghatchian (“The Crown”) and John Woodward (“Cold War”) will executive produce via Brightstar.
