HBO will delve into a future where Americans become exiles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable network is developing Americatown, from writer Bradford Winters.
The project, which Winters has been developing for over a decade, revolves around a future America where it has gotten so bad that people are starting to take up exile in a foreign country, with many arriving in a newly-built city, Americatown to house these American nationals.
"By presenting Americans as immigrants in the near future, as both underdog and hero in the drama of global dislocation, we substitute a mirror for the rancor that informs much of the partisan debates on immigration," Winters said.
A production schedule has not been released for the series.
