HBO Facebook drama series is coming soon called 'Doomsday Machine'

HBO is one of the most prestigious TV networks in all of television, but they are also at the forefront of technology with their HBO Max platform. Now HBO has announced that it will be developing a Facebook drama series called Doomsday Machine.

HBO landed a development deal for Doomsday Machine, which is a limited series based on Sheera Frenkel and Cecilia Kang's book An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook's Battle for Domination, according to Deadline.

Doomsday Machine is a "riveting human drama chronicling the political and social minefields Facebook has navigated on its relentless quest for growth. The series places us in the shoes of Sheryl Sandberg (Foy) and Mark Zuckerberg, who are shaping the way that billions of people around the world communicate and consume information,” according to HBO.

The series is based on Frenkel and Kang’s reporting for the New York Times and was first announced in October before entering into a multiple-network bidding war.

The script is expected to be written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar, who will also executive produce the show with Paul Lee and Josh Stern (Wiip), David Levine and Doug Wald (Anonymous Content), Adam Berkowitz, Elyse Cheney, and Adam Eaglin.

Foy, who has two Emmy wins for her role as Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix's The Crown, will also executive produce.
