Brave New World
Are We Amusing Ourselves to Death?
In autumn 2020 Sky broadcast nine episodes of Brave New World, a series based on Aldous Huxley’s novel, adapted significantly but with recognizable core themes and characters for those who know the original. First shown earlier in 2020 in the United States the series was commissioned by NBCUniversal for its streaming service Peacock. Peacock cancelled the commission after the first series. This was not going to run and run.
