The PlayStation Network’s first TV series Powers has received mixed reviews at best, but it has recently come to light that Sony originally had plans to produce a series based on Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 instead. In a number of leaked emails published on Wikileaks, several key Sony Pictures and PlayStation executives detail plans for a 13-episode season which would involve the South African director himself. The show had a whopping $3 million budget per episode and would have been filmed at a number of locations in South Africa. Sadly, while Blomkamp “expressed interest in talking about the project”, it was never undertaken as he was simply too busy with other work.
