Imagem de: Horizon Zero Dawn: série revela showrunner e Aloy será protagonista

Netflix revealed this Thursday (25) that the Horizon Zero Dawn series is being written and produced by Steve Blackman, who was showrunner for The Umbrella Academy. He highly praised Aloy’s game, who will also be the protagonist of the television adaptation.

Blackman said that the PlayStation title (which recently came to PC) was well developed, as it managed to have deep characters that are not often seen in the video game industry.

“Guerrilla Games has created an incredibly lush and vivid world of man and machine on a collision course towards oblivion. Their salvation comes in the form of a young warrior named Aloy, who has no idea that she is the key to saving the world. Suffice it to say, yes, Aloy will be a main character in our story,” she confirmed.

The executive producer said that writer Michelle Lovretta is helping with the script and that the duo’s idea is “to expand this remarkable intellectual property into a series for all types of viewers.”

Blackman is also at the helm of Orbital, another Netflix production that will also be in the science fiction genre. Despite this, he was keen to point out that she will not be similar to Horizon and that neither will have the same “footprint” as The Umbrella Academy. The producer just stated that he wants them to have the same success as Umbrella, which will arrive in season 4.

“Horizon Zero Dawn and Orbital are, on the surface, very different programs from each other and from The Umbrella Academy. One is set a thousand years in the future, in a world completely remade by massive machines. The other is situated near the present day on a space station,” she argued.

The showrunner said that his work is based on building characters and worlds. According to the pro, he enjoys working with characters who struggle to find their place in the world and stories that subvert expectations.
