A new TV series adaptation of the sci-fi classic “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” is in development at Hulu, Deadline reports, with prolific showrunner Carlton Cuse and feature writer Jason Fuchs behind the project.

“Cuse and Fuchs, both fans of the iconic title, will write, executive produce and showrun the proposed series, a modern updating of the classic story which is now in development at Hulu via ABC Signature and Cuse’ Genre Arts. Fuchs is writing the pilot script,” Deadline reports.

“A British popular culture staple, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ originated as a comedy radio series and became a hugely successful series of novels that has been translated into more than 30 languages and has become essential reading for high school students around the world,” Deadline notes, adding: “The series follows the intergalactic adventures of Arthur Dent, a hapless Englishman, following the destruction of Earth by the Vogons, a race of unpleasant and bureaucratic aliens.”
