HBO and Warner Bros. TV are teaming to produce a series based on Isaac Asimov's “Foundation” trilogy that will be written and produced by “Interstellar” writer Jonathan Nolan, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. - The Wrap
I hope the series will be more like an HBO series akin to Rome or Sopranos than a Warner Bros series like Smallville or Arrow.
Even so, I love these books, so this is great news.
Well, I fucking love the "Foundation" novels by Isaac Asimov —they're certainly not unknown, but that's a set of books I think everyone would benefit from reading. That's a set of books where the influence they have is just fucking massive; they have many imitators and many have been inspired by them, but go back and read those, and there are some ideas in those that'll set your fucking hair on fire. - Jonathan Nolan
