The Sector is an action science-Fiction television series executive produced by Ridley and Tony Scott and written by Matthew and Aaron Benay. The series, which is still in the development stage, will follow the commander of a paramilitary unit who pursues a dangerous new race of genetically enhanced humans. It was originally announced to air on Cinemax and is co-produced with Tandem Communications and Scott Free Productions, the same team behind Starz original series, The Pillars of the Earth. However, on August 31, 2011 it was announced that Cinemax had passed on the show, with a clarification that the original order was only for a pilot plus the show bible. It was simultaneously announced that the Science Channel is now considering picking the show up to series.
