Station Eleven series adaptation


"Patrick Somerville, the showrunner for Netflix’s “Maniac,” is set to serve in the same capacity for two shows for the upcoming WarnerMedia streaming service, one of them a post apocalyptic thriller titled “Station Eleven.” It’ll be an adaptation of Emily St. John Mandel’s novel, released in 2015. The limited series will have a 10-episode run, THR reports today.

The unnamed WarnerMedia streaming service is expected to arrive in late 2019."


“Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end.”

“Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed.”

Three episodes in & I can’t make heads or tails of it. Very disappointing since it got great reviews. Very well-acted, but I’m not hooked at all.
I’m here only on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays. That’s why I’m here now.
