The Man Who Fell To Earth Creators Alex Kurtzman And Jenny Lumet On Optimism And Episode 4 [Interview]

Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet is a writing partnership that makes sense. When interviewing the writing and producing duo, they're joking around and completing each other's sentences. Now, the longtime collaborators and friends have created Showtime's "The Man Who Fell to Earth," a continuation of both author Walter Tevis' novel and director Nicolas Roeg's seminal David Bowie-led sci-fi film.

‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’: Alex Kurtzman & Jenny Lumet Talk About Their Sci-Fi Sequel Series & Tom Cruise’s ‘The Mummy’[Bingeworthy Podcast]

In today’s episode of Bingeworthy, our revitalized TV and streaming podcast co-hosts Mike DeAngelo and Rodrigo Perez dive into Showtime’s new sci-fi sequel/reboot series, “The Man Who Fell to Earth” from Alex Kurtzman (“Fringe,” “Alias,” “Star Trek: Discovery”) and Jenny Lumet (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “Rachel Getting Married”). Based on the classic 1976 sci-fi movie from director Nicolas Roeg starring David Bowie, this new “The Man Who Fell to Earth” is essentially a legacy sequel and centers on Faraday (Chiwetel Ejiofor), an alien who comes to Earth with a mission to enlist the help of a human scientist (Naomie Harris) to save his species and, in turn, humanity (read our review here). Bill Nighy takes up David Bowie’s alien role in the series too (yes, the character is still alive).
