Keanu Reeves and director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, 2012) are teaming up to executive produce a new sci-fi series called New Angeles that Slingshot Global Media will produce and distribute. There’s no word yet on whether Reeves will be acting in the series, but Emmerich will direct the pilot himself so we can expect it to look and feel pretty big. Gregg Hurwitz, who worked on the V television series, will write the pilot and executive produce as well.
There’s no word on when New Angeles will be hitting screens or if there’s a full series order waiting after the pilot is shot, but the idea sounds sort intriguing in the sense that it more directly echoes The Matrix than you might expect. Hit the jump for more on New Angeles.
