Ridley Scott Brings Sci-Fi to Cinemax

Ridley Scott

You might know Cinemax (or “Skinemax,” in the vernacular) for a lot of things, but original series aren’t one of them, especially original sci-fi series being helmed by Ridley Scott. As part of the channel’s plan to rebrand as a hub for male-oriented television and movies, Cinemax is teaming up with Scott to produce The Sector, a one-hour drama that’s being called a spiritual successor to Blade Runner. In fact, the plot — about a cop that tracks down either androids or genetically-enhanced humans, depending on who you ask — is almost identical to Blade Runner. But you don’t see me complaining about that!
