Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy TV Series Reportedly In Development

The classic novel series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is reportedly being adapted into a series for Hulu. THR reports that the series will be headed up by Carlton Cuse (Lost, Jack Ryan) and Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman). The two will write and executive produce the project.

The show is said to be under the umbrella of ABC Signature, the ABC division that focuses on streaming shows. Disney is also the majority owner of Hulu, and owns the rights to Hitchhiker's Guide. Cuse has an overall deal with ABC as well.

The HGTTG series of novels from Douglas Adams follows Arthur Dent, a down-on-his-luck British man who goes on a space-hopping adventure after Earth is destroyed to make space for an intergalactic highway. The series is known for its dry wit, with equal parts satirical and absurdist humor. It was previously adapted into a movie in 2005 starring Martin Freeman, Mos Def, and Zooey Deschanel.

Hulu has gained critical attention in recent years for The Handmaid's Tale. While Disney is the majority owner, it offers a mix of original programming and selections from network and cable TV. Disney's own streaming service, Disney+, is scheduled to launch this fall for $7 per month.
