Days before the highly anticipated second season of Westworld debuts on HBO, creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are looking to their next project.  Joy and Nolan, via their Warner Bros. Television-based Kilter Films banner, are set to adapt William Gibson’s book The Peripheral as a drama for Amazon Studios. The project landed at Amazon in a competitive situation, with the retailer/streaming outlet handing out a script-to-series order.  Lisa-Joy-and-Jonathan-Nolan-of-Westworld

The Peripheral revolves around Flynne Fisher, a woman in a near-future America in which technology has started to subtly alter society. Flynne discovers a hidden connection to a very different reality — and the dark future of her own.

Season two of Westworld premieres Sunday on HBO.
