HBO is in negotiations for a limited series based on one of the hottest movies of the year, Bong Joon Ho’s genre-bending Parasite.

Bong and Adam McKay will craft the TV series adaptation, from CJ Entertainment, the studio behind the feature film, McKay’s Hyperobject Industries and Dooho Choi’s Kate Street Picture Company.

The Parasite series was hotly pursued by top streamers, including Netflix. The in-demand Bong chose to set up the project at HBO, which has a strong track record in limited series — from Band of Brothers to Big Little Lies — and team up with Succession executive producer McKay, who is under a first-look deal at HBO/HBO Max.

Bong and McKay will executive produce with Choi for Kate Street, Miky Lee, Cho Young Ki and Francis Chung for CJ Entertainment and Kevin Messick for Hyperobject Industries. CJ Entertainment’s Jerry Ko is co-executive producer and Fred Lee is a producer. The project is a co-production of Kate Street Picture Company, CJ Entertainment and Hyperobject Industries.
