Divergent: ‘Ascendant’ TV Series (Starz TBC)


Distinguished Member
Reportedly Lionsgate is to set new subsidiary Starz to developing Ascendant as a drama series based on the Summit/Lionsgate movie.

Things are still in the early stages, Lee Toland Krieger (The Age of Adaline)—who was set to direct the feature film Ascendant—is attached to direct and executive produce the series with Adam Cozad (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit)—who was also attached to write the movie—writing and executive producing the TV show.

It is unclear whether the cast from the movie, led by Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Ansel Elgort, would appear on the series though that is considered a possibility as a way to wrap their characters’ story and jump-start the series. Reps for Starz and Lionsgate TV declined comment.
