Survivors – BBC TV

The BBC's revival of the classic 1970s post-apocalyptic drama by Terry Nation

SFX mini-interview with Survivors executive producer Kate Harwood

Posted by Rich Cross on February 18, 2008

Several important questions are answered in a mini-interview with new series Survivors producer Kate Harwood in SFX magazine in February 2008:

  1. The remake will stay ‘close to the original’ in several key respects – not least in setting events in motion through the spread of a global pandemic
  2. The new series will be based on Terry Nation’s 1976 Survivors novel rather than directly on the events of the original TV series
  3. It will present a fresh spin on the drama, updating the setting, context and storylines and focusing a little more on ‘action adventure’ themes
  4. The new Survivors will be a six-part mini-series, four episodes of which will be penned by Adrian Hodges
  5. It is likely that the new series will be broadcast at the end of 2008 or early in 2009
