Telemystery: SyFy Developing Series based on The Adjustment Bureau

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

SyFy is reportedly developing a television series based on the recently released film The Adjustment Bureau, itself an adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story "Adjustment Team". Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin (No Ordinary Family, Smallville) are writing the pilot screenplay.

What happens when you discover that the life you've been living has been carefully planned by someone else … and that your future is also in their hands? That the choices you've made and will make are the result of subtle — and sometimes not so subtle — changes in your environment initiated by a third party? This is the premise of The Adjustment Bureau, a film we generally liked, though we didn't really buy the whole romantic relationship subplot involving David Norris (played by Matt Damon) and Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). (You can read Mr. E.'s full review here.) What worked best in the film is what would probably work best in a series, the opportunity to explore a bit more how the Adjustment Bureau (or Team) perform their tasks to achieve their objectives.
