Apple TV+ has announced the development of a ten-episode science-fiction drama based on William Gibson's award-winning novel "Neuromancer."

The series will center around a skilled but troubled hacker named Case, who is forced into a dangerous world of digital espionage and high-stakes crime. Alongside his partner Molly, a professional assassin, Case will attempt to pull off a daring heist against a powerful corporate dynasty.

"Neuromancer" is considered to be one of the pioneering and highly regarded works in the cyberpunk genre and has received several prestigious awards, such as the Nebula Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, and the Hugo Award. The novel is the first book in the "Sprawl" trilogy and is followed by "Count Zero" and "Mona Lisa Overdrive."

The show will be created for television by Graham Roland, known for his work on "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" and "Dark Winds," and JD Dillard, who has previously worked on "Devotion," "The Outsider," and "Sleight." Roland will be the showrunner, and Dillard is set to direct the pilot episode.

"We're incredibly excited to be bringing this iconic property to Apple TV+," said Roland and Dillard.

"Since we became friends nearly 10 years ago, we've looked for something to team up on, so this collaboration marks a dream come true. 'Neuromancer' has inspired so much of the science fiction that's come after it and we're looking forward to bringing television audiences into Gibson's definitive 'cyberpunk' world."

The series will join other sci-fi powerhouses on Apple TV+, such as "Foundation," "Invasion," and upcoming series "Constellation."
