David Benioff ’92

New Universe

The Netflix series “3 Body Problem,” based on a trilogy of science fiction books, premieres on March 21. Benioff teamed up with his “Game of Thrones” co-creator D.B. Weiss and Alexander Woo to make this adaptation. According to the New York Times:

The “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were finishing off their hit HBO series after an eight-season run and wondering what was next. That was when the Netflix executive Peter Friedlander approached them with a trilogy of science-fiction books by the Chinese novelist Liu Cixin called “Remembrance of Earth’s Past.”

“We knew that it won the Hugo Award, which is a big deal for us since we grew up as nerds,” Benioff said of the literary prize for science fiction. 

“So much content right now feels like, ‘Oh, here’s another forensic show, here’s another legal thriller,’ it just feels like it’s a version of something you’ve seen,” Benioff said. “This universe is a different one.”
