Here's the One Sentence Pitch Used to Sell Apple on Foundation

Apple asked David S. Goyer to sell them on his adaption of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy in one sentence, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Here's how he described it...

“I said: ‘It’s a 1,000-year chess game between Hari Seldon and the Empire, and all the characters in between are the pawns, but some of the pawns over the course of this saga end up becoming kings and queens.'”

The trilogy has been difficult for writers to adapt because it spans 1000 years with massive time jumps. It also jumps between characters and isn't particularly emotional. Goyer says he has solved some of these issues.

"So a lot of the action happens off-screen. In the books, the Empire, which is on 10,000 worlds, literally falls off-screen — like, it happens in between chapters. Obviously, that wasn’t going to work for a television show. So without giving too much away, I figured out a way to have some of the characters extend their lifespans. About six characters will continue from season to season, from century to century. That way it becomes half anthological, half continuing story."
