TNT announced today that it has picked up action thriller series The Lazarus Project, acquired from NBCUniversal Global Distribution on behalf of Sky Studios.
Announced by Kathleen Finch, Chairman and Chief Content Officer, US Networks Group for Warner Bros. Discovery, The Lazarus Project will be the first new scripted drama to appear on TNT since the April 2022 merger that brought Discovery and WarnerMedia together as Warner Bros. Discovery. Said Finch:
“We have a robust slate of exciting new projects in development to give the large, engaged TNT audience a reason to tune-in night after night. Acquiring the U.S. rights to ‘The Lazarus Project,’ a series that already has a strong following in the UK, gave us a runway to reset TNT’s scripted and unscripted development filters and quickly deliver fresh content for fans of big, scripted drama.”
The Lazarus Project follows George, the latest recruit to The Lazarus Project, a secret organization that has harnessed the ability to turn back time whenever the world is at the threat of extinction. George and his colleagues are the few people on Earth with the ability to remember the events that are undone when time goes back. But when a freak accident harms someone close to George, Lazarus won’t let him turn back time to undo it unless there is the threat of global extinction. Now George must choose to stay loyal or go rogue as he faces the question of, “If you had the power to re-write your past, what would you sacrifice to do it?”
The eight-hour action thriller stars Emmy® Award and BAFTA-nominated Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You), Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard), Tom Burke (C.B. Strike), Caroline Quentin (Bridgerton), Rudi Dharmalingam (Wakefield), and Charly Clive (Pure).
The series is produced by Urban Myth Films in association with Sky Studios. The Executive Producers are Julian Murphy, Johnny Capps, and Joe Barton. Paul Gilbert is Executive Producer for Sky Studios. Season 2 of the series is currently in production.
The Lazarus Project is expected to launch on TNT in early 2023. Stay tuned for updates.
