Jamie Magnus Stone Directing Brian W. Aldiss’ ‘Non-Stop’ For TV


EXCLUSIVE: Doctor Who director Jamie Magnus Stone is helming a sci-fi series adaptation of Brian W. Aldiss‘ debut Non-Stop for Aircraft Pictures.

Set in a distant future, Non-Stop tells the tale of Roy Complain, a man born into a primitive society only to discover his tribe is one of many aboard a colossal spaceship. This knowledge sets Complain and his band of intrepid explorers on a perilous journey through uncharted territories to find the ship’s bridge, as they unravel the mysteries of their new world and confront the looming threat of their own annihilation.

Casting is yet to be announced and Aircraft will begin shopping the project at Series Mania next week.

“We’re excited to bring this science-fiction classic to the screen as part of Aircraft’s continued expansion into scripted drama,” said Anthony Leo and Andrew Rosen, co-founders of Aircraft. “We’re fortunate to be working with one of the UK’s most exciting directors and look forward to bringing Jamie’s compelling vision for this adaptation to fruition.”

The original book, Aldiss’ debut science fiction novel, was awarded the British Science Fiction Association Award for best novel in 1958.

Stone directed eight episodes of Doctor Who between 2020 and 2022, prior to the Russell T Davies regeneratio. Past credits include BBC-Stan drama Ten Pound Poms and feature The Last Dragonslayer, while he is helming upcoming BBC series Nightsleeper.

Oscar and Emmy-nominated producer Aircraft has been behind the likes of Apple TV+’s Circuit Breakers, Angelina Jolie-produced animated feature The Breadwinner and Hulu’s Holly Hobbie.

The Non-Stop deal was brokered by Anna Weguelin on behalf of the Brian W. Aldiss estate and the Heritage Department of Curtis Brown, as well as Ryan Saul and Corey Trent Ackerman of The Cartel and Jago Irwin at Independent Talent Group on behalf of Stone.
