Feb. 16 (UPI) — USA Network has ordered a series based on Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel “Brave New World.”

Owen Harris will direct the first episode and executive produce the series, which imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself,” a press release said.

No casting or premiere date have been announced yet.

USA Network also recently announced it had renewed “Suits” for a ninth and final season, and ordered a new drama called “Briarpatch” starring Rosario Dawson.
