The Truman Show

(1998)

Truman's life is entirely make-believe. He was adopted by a media corporation when he was a baby and, since then, his entire life has been a set-up for the most popular television show of all time.

While Truman thinks that he is an ordinary man with an ordinary life, he has no idea that everything around him is the set of a television show and that he has no idea about the world outside.

Everyone in his life, from his wife (Laura Linney) to his best friend (Noah Emmerich) are hired actors playing their part in a state-of-the-art studio that encompasses the fictional town of Seahaven. No details were given for the series, except that it will be a re-imagining of the film. It isn't known if director Peter Weir or screenwriter Andrew Niccol will be involved in any capacity.
