Apple has added another series to its burgeoning lineup: Isaac Asimov's Foundation series is getting a TV adaptation, with David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds) at the helm, as showrunners and executive producers. The show will be produced by Skydance Television, with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross serving as executive producers on its behalf. Friedman is now working on Avatar 2, while Goyer has written numerous comic book adaptations including Blade, Ghost Rider, the Dark Knight trilogy, Zack Snyder's DC franchise, and the new Superman spinoff Krypton.

Based on Asimov's novel series of the same name, "Foundation" is set far in the future about humans scattered across distant planets all under the rule of the Galactic Empire. Fox, Warner Bros., and Sony have all made the attempt, with HBO most recently trying as well with Jonathan Nolan (Westworld) and Roland Emmerich (Independence Day). Goyer and Friedman have been involved with the adaptation since last June, though they are not the first ones to try.
