J.J. Abrams’ latest series Subject To Change has found a home at HBO Max. The streaming service announced on Friday that they’ve ordered the series, which is based on an original story from the Star Wars and Cloverfield director.

Jennifer Yale will serve as executive producer and showrunner on the show, which follows a desperate college student who signs up for a clinical trial that begins a wild, harrowing, mind and reality-bending adventure. Yale’s past credits include Da Vinci’s Demons at Starz, WGN’s Underground, Noah Hawley’s Legion, and more.

“It’s been incredible fun weaving this rather insane yarn with Jenn, and I am grateful to her and everyone at HBO Max for the opportunity to bring this story to life,” said Abrams.

Yale said in a statement, “I have felt so privileged to work with J.J. and Bad Robot on expanding J.J.’s exhilarating story to create a twisty, thought-provoking thriller where almost anything is possible and yet everything is planned. Now partnering with HBO Max to make it a reality is a dream.”
