Starz Moves Forward With Sci-Fi Project THR

Starz is developing a sci-fi project from "Zoolander" producer Adam Schroeder and "Ray Donovan’s” Bryan Zuriff, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

The drama, “Human Error,” is set in the near future, when artificial humans called "synthetics" are introduced into society. The story focuses on a human detective who is paired with a synthetic and works on a case that uncovers a conspiracy, the piece adds.

Schroeder is also behind “Chronicle” and “The Truman Show,” the report notes. British screenwriter and playwright Philip Gawthorne is set to write the pilot.

Starz has been adding to its lineup of original programming, with that effort gaining urgency as the network is set to lose its Disney films in 2016, the story adds.
