Another streaming service, another literary adaptation.
NBCUniversal’s upcoming video on demand service, Peacock, launches to everyone July 15 — and with it comes the TV series Brave New World, the trailer for which you can now watch.
This adaptation of Aldous Huxley's novel stars Demi Moore and Harry Lloyd, among many other actors and actresses with whom we’re not terribly familiar.
But fun facts about Harry Lloyd: He is a great-great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens and has appeared in TV adaptation of David Copperfield (as Young Steerforth) and Great Expectations (as Herbert Pocket).
Also, he played Viserys Targaryen in HBO’s Game of Thrones series, which of course is based on George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire novels.
Here's the Brave New World trailer; you can learn more about the show on its website.
