HBO is creating and working on a scripted series that will tell the tale of Elon Musk’s space company SpaceX. The series will be called SpaceX, and it will be a limited six-episode series based on the book Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future which is written by Ashlee Vance.
The series will examine how Musk, “in pursuit of his lifelong dream to make humankind a multi-planetary species, handpicks a team of engineers to work on a remote Pacific Island where they build, and launch, the first SpaceX rocket into orbit. It spurred a new era of privately funded space exploration, culminating in the first manned Space X launch of the Falcon 9 on May 30, 2020.”
Doug Jung is assigned to write the series, and Channing Tatum has also on board as an executive producer.
Musk is not connected to the series, but there’s a possibility that he may ultimately come on board to some extent to the series. In addition to his work with SpaceX, he is also known for creating the electric vehicle and also a clean energy company, Tesla. Through his numerous enterprises, Musk’s net worth is expected to be close to $100 billion.
Elon Musk has achieved some awesome things, and I’m sure he will proceed to do so. I know not everyone really cares for Musk, but the guy is doing things that he believes will change the world for the better and for generations to come. It’ll be interesting to see a series that tells the story of he got SpaceX up and running.
