A TV series based on Malcolm Gladwell’s book ‘Outliers’ is in the works at the streamer.
HBO Max is working to develop an anthology series based on the psychology, non-fiction book ‘Outliers’. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, will be the show’s first subject. Greg Walker will write and executive produce; Brian Grazer and Gladwell are also executive producers.
“I am thrilled to be working with my longtime friend Malcolm Gladwell on this creative collaboration,” said Grazer. “Malcolm and I have known each other for over 15 years, and every time I speak to him, I find it to be a richer day. I’ve been a fan of all his books, and ‘Outliers’ provides the perfect framework for a groundbreaking series.”
