The first set of details regarding Sony’s new Horizon 2074 TV show have been revealed, with journalist Jeff Grubb spotting a list of crew members working on the project on the Directors Guild of Canada Ontario’s website. The list itself carries 27 names which includes first assistanct Director Jack Boem (The Boys) and art director Michelle Brady (The Expanse).
The show will also reportedly take place over two timelines assumably with one of those being set in 2074, giving us a glimpse of the fall of mankind within the Horizon universe. Sony announced that it was making an Horizon TV show back in May which will air on Netflix.
The video games, Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West, are set roughly 1000 years after the fall of mankind, which will be included in the show as well. The timelines were also confirmed by Jeff in a recent Giant Bomb episode.
“The show as pitched right now is called Horizon 2074 and it will split its time between the timeline you see in the games and the timeline of when things begin to fall
The idea is that this is not a reboot or a remake or sort of a reimagining of the game’s storyline. It will take place parallel and sort of explain other elements that happened in the game.”
Not only does the list confirm some of the names working on the show, but it also confirms that filming will take place in Toronto, Canada. Grubb explains that the reasoning behind this move is to take advantage of the tax incentive conditions of filming in Toronto.
Here is the crew for Horizon 2074. This confirms the name as well as filming in Toronto. As I reported previously, the show will likely be set in Toronto as per conditions of tax incentives. https://t.co/J20WWdtRN6
