About Netflix Spiderhead
The sci-fi saga Spiderhead is set in the near future, when convicts are offered the chance to volunteer as medical subjects in hopes for shortening their sentences. The tale revolves around two prisoners, who become the test patients for emotion-altering drugs that force the prisoners to grapple with their pasts, in facility run by a brilliant visionary who supervises the program.
Talking about the narrative, the original writer of the book “Escape from Spiderhead”, George Saunders revealed its shadowy timeline, terming it to be a ‘very dark story.’ Saunders touched on to the darkness, saying,
“In ‘Escape from Spiderhead’ prisoners are used for the testing of experimental pharmaceuticals, even unto death. So I understand that this might come off as a little…negative. After all, we are not doing that now. (Well, just to animals, like bunnies and monkeys. Even to the big monkeys, so very much like us but not to prisoners, never to prisoners.) Would we ever do it? Oh. Come on. No way. We are a happy, kindly people. Has there even been a case, in recent human history, where a group of (up to that point kindly/happy) people treated another group cruelly, even unto death, just because they considered that group somewhat sun-human, and therefore beneath pity?”
Furthermore, Spiderhead will be produced by Eric Newman alongside Chris Hemsworth, Oren Katzeff and Geneva Wasserman.
