Today is a big day at NBCUniversal as the mass media conglomerate will launch its own streaming service, Peacock. The latter offers already a wide range of archival content for fans. But there are also many interesting original works in progress that are going to hit the platform soon. The upcoming Brave New World adaptation is one of the most interesting, given that the source material is considered one of the most influential novels ever.
The brief trailer of the series features Alden Ehrenreich’s Jon the Savage as he discovers a futuristic New London. In the society imagined by Aldous Huxley in his 1932 novel, everybody belongs to everybody. But it seems that Jon feels like something is out of its place.
