As part of a plan to make over Cinemax into a guy-focused action channel, HBO has tapped "Blade Runner" makers Ridley Scott and Simon Mirren to create a new sci-fi series for the channel, reports the New York Post.
The new series is called "The Sector" and is about the chief of a paramilitary unit who hunts down dangerous, genetically enhanced humans, the report notes. Scott and Mirren, the producer of TV series such as "Criminal Minds," will produce the series, the article says.
"The Sector" is the third series HBO has bought to revamp Cinemax during the last two months, following "The Transporter" and "Strike Back," the piece reports.
"The Transporter" is about a criminal facilitator who will take anyone or anything to a drop-off site for the right price, while "Strike Back" is about an American working with the British military to halt terrorists.
