'The Nevers' from Joss Whedon coming to HBO

HBO will air "The Nevers" a new series from Joss Whedon. "The Nevers" is a science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world. Whedon will serve as Executive Producer, Showrunner, Writer and Director.  

"I honestly couldn't be more excited," Whedon said about the project. "THE NEVERS" is maybe the most ambitious narrative I've created, and I can't imagine a better home for it than HBO. Not only are they the masters of cinematic long-form, but their instant understanding of my odd, intimate epic was as emotional as it was incisive. It's been too long since I created an entirely new fictional world, and the HBO team offer not just scope and experience, not just 'prestige,' but a passionate collaboration. I could go on, but? - ?I'm impatiently grateful to say? - ?I have work to do."

Whedon's list of impressive projects includes "The Avengers" and its sequel "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." He earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay with Disney's box-office smash Toy Story. Other notable feature writing credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Speed and Alien Resurrection. In the fall of 2005, Whedon made his feature directorial debut with Serenity, based on the Firefly series.
