EXCLUSIVE: The Crown producer Left Bank is swapping the royal family for the world of hedge funds and artificial intelligence with its latest project – an adaptation of Robert HarrisThe Fear Index.

The book, which was published by Penguin Random House, is set on May 6 2010, the date of the British general election and the 36-minute flash crash, the trillion-dollar stock market crash. Set in the office of Hoffmann Investment Technologies, a fictional hedge fund in Geneva, it follows founder Dr. Alex Hoffmann, an American expat physicist, who stays out of the public spotlight, but within the secretive inner circles of the ultra-rich he is a legend.

He has now developed a revolutionary form of artificial intelligence that predicts movements in the financial markets with uncanny accuracy. As a result, his hedge fund is poised to make billions. But one morning before dawn, a sinister intruder breaches the elaborate security of his lakeside mansion. So begins a waking nightmare of paranoia and violence as Hoffmann attempts, with increasing desperation, to discover who is trying to destroy him.
