Nine Inch Nails guru Trent Reznor told the Los Angeles Times that a project based around NIN's 'Year Zero' album is slowly taking shape. Reznor, who is expecting his first child with his wife, said, "We are in pre-production with HBO and BBC America to do a miniseries. It's exciting.

"I probably shouldn't say too much about it except that I understand that there's a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It's been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we're writing drafts back and forth. So it's very much alive and incubating at the moment."

HBO is known for its quality programming, so a partnership between Reznor and the pay cable network could yield some rather terrific fruit.
