TNT is back in its scripted business as they acquired The Lazarus Project, a British drama series. It premieres sometime in early 2023. Kathleen Finch, Chairman, and Chief Content Officer, US Networks Group for Warner Bros. Discovery, was the one to give the announcement.
“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,” said Finch. “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.”
With this, it marks the first scripted drama to air on TNT since the April 2022 merger that created Warner Bros. Discovery. The series centers on George, the newest member of The Lazarus Project, a secret organization that developed an ability to go back in time whenever the world is in danger of extinction. It stars Paapa Essiedu, Anjli Mohindra, Tom Burke, Caroline Quentin, Rudi Dharmalingam, and Charly Clive.
In collaboration with Sky Studios, Urban Myth Films produces “The Lazarus Project.” Julian Murphy, Johnny Capps, and Joe Barton serve as executive producers. Paul Gilbert is the Executive Producer for Sky Studios.
About The Lazarus Project TV Show
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?Keep track of the cancel/renew status of all your favorite shows.
