FIGHT CLUB Writer to Script Trent Reznor’s YEAR ZERO Miniseries at HBO. Last September, we learned that Nine Inch Nails frontman and composer Trent Reznor was going to turn his lyrics and music from his band’s album Year Zero into a TV series.
The album has been described as a musical chronicle that criticizes contemporary policies of the United States government by presenting a dystopian vision of the year 2022. We haven’t heard anything about the series since last year, but now THR has learned Fight Club screenwriter Jim Uhls will write the project which is now a miniseries set up at HBO and BBC Worldwide. When the project was first announced, Carnivàle writer Daniel Knauf was said to be writing the series, but apparently the job is now Uhls to take. If it has the same grit and tone as Fight Club, then this should be a great miniseries for HBO down the road.
The story takes place in the United States in the year 2022, which has been termed “Year 0″, by the American government, being the year that America was reborn.

In a blog article by Wired magazine, musician Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) explains how he came up with the idea to use a twitter iPhone application to upload and broadcast photo and video footage from his concert tours for avid fans while waiting impatiently to go on stage. It was then that Reznor realized fans were doing their own photo and video sharing via social media networks. He collaborated with Apple, Inc. to design a twitter-like application specifically for Nine Inch Nail fans. The free application has a tentative release date of April/May 2009. Fans will be able to tweet to one another and share photos in the twitter-like feed.
