Claire Foy-led series Doomsday Machine lands at HBO.

British star Claire Foy‘s upcoming scripted series Doomsday Machine has been acquired by HBO. The premium cable network bought the show after a multiple-outlet bidding war. The drama is a co-production between HBO and Anonymous Content and CAA-backed Wiip, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

Foy will star as top Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg in the series, which is based on Sheera Frenkel and Cecilia Kang’s New York Times bestselling book An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook’s Battle for Domination. It will focus on the relationship between the social media giant’s founder Mark Zuckerberg and Sandberg, who serve as the company’s chief operating officer (COO), as well as the obstacles Facebook has faced on its relentless quest for growth.
