Los Angele: Darren Aronofsky is reportedly developing a TV series based on Margaret Atwood`s `MaddAddam` book trilogy.

Aronofsky will executive produce the show with his fiancee Brandi-Ann Milbrandt and Ari Handel. He may also consider to direct it, reportedly.

The project comes as part of a first-look deal that Aronofsky inked with the channel in January. The story is set in the mid-21st century in a world where corporations have taken over for governments and the genetic modification of organisms is the norm.

The trilogy began with `Oryx and Crake` (2003) and concluded with "The Year of the Flood" (2009), which offers an alternative perspective of the events in the first novel.
