Hugh Zackman, David Benioff and DB Weiss Collected

‘Game of Thrones’ showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss are collaborating with Hugh Jackman for the Netflix adaptation of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel

David Benioff and DB Weiss have a third Netflix project lined up: namely the TV adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, ‘The Overstory’. 

Hugh Zackman, star of Logan, Bad Education and Prisoners, will serve as an executive producer. According to Deadline, the actor may also play a key role in the TV series. While the casting is picking up steam, details have not been revealed to the press yet.

Authored by Richard Powers, The Overstory novel won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.



“It is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of―and paean to―the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond,” reads the Amazon description.

This is the third addition to Benioff and Weiss’ content slate for Netflix. The duo is also in the midst of developing two other projects for the streaming giant after having signed a nine figure deal in 2019.
