HBO already has multiple projects in the works from J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions, including Jordan Peele’s Lovecraft Country and the first TV series Abrams is also writing since Fringe, titled Demimonde. They also produce the current HBO series Westworld, which is heading into its third season.
Now they’re adding another, a sci-fi comedy titled They Both Die at the End. The show, which will be written and executive produced by co-creator of Comedy Central’s The Other Two and former SNL writer Chris Kelly, is based on author Adam Silvera‘s book of the same name. It’s set in a future when people are notified on the day they’re going to die, and follows a group—who are all connected to a pair of teenage boys at the center of the story—as they experience their “scary, funny, weird, hopeful, romantic, and unexpected final hours.”

Warning – SPOILERS for Preacher Season 1 Episode 3 “The Possibilities”
Preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) is being pulled in multiple directions. There is Tulip (Ruth Negga), his ex partner and girlfriend who is lustfully trying to persuade him back to his darker urges. There’s Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the Irish vampire who argues with him over faith and God’s path. There is the town of Annville, Texas, that is in desperate need of salvation. And of course, there is an otherworldly force possessing him that has the power to make people listen to his words… to the letter. Last week, two men came seeking this power, but Cassidy took them out using a chainsaw and the good book… to the head. Interestingly, the two men left very dead by Cass were seen very much alive by the sheriff at the end.
