It looks like science fiction film fans are in for a treat because Hulu is currently developing their own small-screen adaptation of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy together with Lost and Jack Ryan's Carlton Cuse as well as Wonder Woman co-writer, Jason Fuchs.

According to a report by Deadline (which was recently confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter), Cuse and Fuchs are currently working together on a live-action series based on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book series by Douglas Adams. Disney's ABC Signature, the division of ABC studios focusing on the development of series for cable and streaming outlets, is working on the new adaptation.

The project is to be streamed on Hulu, a streaming company wherein Disney is the majority stakeholder. Disney owns the rights to Douglas Adam's novels and the studio came up with a Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie back in 2005 featuring Sherlock star Martin Freeman, Mos Def, and indie darling Zooey Deschanel.

For those who aren't familiar with the books, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was originally created as a radio series for BBC that was later turned into a book series made up of six novels. The story focuses on the adventures of Arthur Dent, an Englishman who becomes a space traveler after Earth is obliterated by an alien race to make way for an intergalactic highway bypass.

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy series has yet to receive a release date, but we'll update everyone as soon as we get word.
