HBO Collaborates with Team Downey and ‘Westworld’ Producers to Create New Drama ‘Sphere’

‘Westworld’ producers are teaming up with Team Downey to create ‘Sphere’. The new show is based off of a 1998 Michael Crichton novel. ‘Westworld’ was also based off of another Michael Crichton novel. ‘Sphere’ is about scientists who explore an alien spacecraft at the bottom of the ocean, but get into trouble when they start to turn on one another.

Producers for the show include Team Downey, Lisa Joy, Jonathan Nolan, and Warner Bros, Television. ‘Westworld’ producers Joy and Nolan both signed contracts with Amazon. Both ‘Westworld’ and ‘Sphere’ were planned before the contracts were signed, allowing them to continue work on both projects.
