HBO and J.J. Abrams are teaming up once more to adapt Adam Silvera’s 2017 New York Times best-selling novel They Both Die at the End, according to Deadline.

Set in the near-future in which people are given a phone call to alert them of their last day on Earth, They Both Die at the End follows two boys who join a number of people as they live out their final day via a number of “scary, funny, weird, hopeful, [and] romantic” situations.

The Other Two co-creator Chris Kelly will aid in the production. Kelly also wrote and directed Other People, which made its debut at the Sundance film Festival in 2016, and served as a writer for SNL.

They Both Die at the End marks the latest HBO venture for Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions, which also produces the hit sci-fi drama Westworld. The studio recently received a series pickup for its upcoming fantasy drama Demimonde.
