Fans of the Walter Tevis novel(opens in new tab) and the classic 1976 David Bowie film will be thrilled to learn that The Man Who Fell To Earth has been adapted into a television series.
Boasting a stellar ensemble including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Naomie Harris, Bill Nighy, and Rob Delaney, The Man Who Fell to Earth has broadcast in the US and is now accessible on Paramount Plus in the UK. This is not a remake in the traditional sense, but rather a new perspective on the novel and the Bowie film; director/writer Alex Kurtzman has promised that he would honor the work of those who came before him.
Faraday, portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor of “12 Years a Slave,” is an alien who lands on Earth at a critical juncture in human history and must face his own past in order to salvage humanity’s future in this new series. Naomie Harris portrays Dr. Justin Falls, a talented scientist who must overcome her personal problems in order to save not one but two universes.
