Hugh Howey Teases Adaptation of Novel
On the heels of the news that AMC is developing a TV series based on Hugh Howey’s Wool comes a tease from Hugh about yet another adaptation on a book of his he says “never gets mentioned.”
This has started speculation on Twitter, but note that Hugh says “novel” never mentioned. This narrows things down by cutting out his shorts, but not by much. His novels, excluding Wool, are:
- Molly Fyde
- The Hurricane
- The Shell Collector
- I, Zombie
- Beacon 23
- Half Way Home
I know some of you are probably screaming internally that Sand should be on that list. But note that it was announced last year that Sand is with SyFy, and people do talk about Sand quite often.

‘Wool’ TV Series in Development at AMC
Variety reported today that a “Wool” TV adaptation is now in development over at AMC.
LaToya Morgan is developing a TV series at AMC based on Hugh Howey’s “Wool,” Variety has learned exclusively.
Morgan will executive produce the project in addition to writing the pilot. Howey is also attached as a producer. Morgan, who is currently under an overall deal with AMC, is no stranger to the dystopian genre. She currently serves as writer and co-executive producer on AMC’s “Into the Badlands.” She previously worked as a co-executive producer and writer on AMC’s “Turn: Washington’s Spies.” Her other television credits include “Shameless” and “Parenthood.”
What do you think about this news? A lot of things still need to go right before we’re watching a Chris Hardwick aftershow with a silo-worthy slate of actors, but it’s nice to hear a new development. Keep your fingers crossed!
