‘Fargo’ Showrunner to Develop Kurt Vonnegut’s ‘Cat’s Cradle’ Limited Series at FX

Noah Hawley to adapt sci-fi novel with IM Global TV

Noah Hawley will develop an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle” as a limited series for FX, TheWrap has learned.

The 1963 novel satirizes the Cold War arms race and plays on societal anxiety over military annihilation and increased militarization in the world.

The Vonnegut adaptation also hails from IM Global under its newly established television arm.

Hawley signed a two-year overall deal with FX after the success of the first season of “Fargo.” He is currently the showrunner on the second season of the anthology series, and he is also writing and executive producing “X-Men” based pilot “Legion” for the network.
