It is being reported that; Nine Inch Nails frontman and founding member Trent Reznor is currently in the development stages of creating a televevison series centered around the band's 2007 studio album "Year Zero." Trent Reznor commented by saying:

"We are in pre-production with HBO and BBC to do a miniseries. It’s exciting. I probably shouldn’t say too much about it except that I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.

"BBC was the first to show interest and came on as the studio. Our writer is Daniel Knauf from ‘Carnivale’ and he’s busy with pages right now and revising the overall world Bible. It’s been an interesting collaborative effort but I’ve learned that [television development] moves at a glacial pace."
