His sci-fi show set about Victorian women with superpowers is coming to HBO.
Joss Whedon’s next TV project, The Nevers, “is an epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women,” starring Laura Donnelly. Color us sold. [Me too! ~ Vida]
It’s about a group of women with extraordinary abilities during the Victorian Era.
They’re known as “the Touched,” and they’re ready to face some formidable enemies.
“[The Nevers is a] phrase that’s meant to evoke a sort of reaction to their oddity, to what is considered unnatural. The idea that you should never be like this, you should never have existed. Something is not the way it should be, and you don’t have the right to have whatever weird power or ability that you have,” Whedon said, describing his characters.
“And that idea, that some people are not of the natural order, is fascinating to me.”
