The Peripheral’s producer’s statement on the show

Scott B. Smith who is the producer and screenwriter of the show said: “Most of the themes The Peripheral addresses come straight from William Gibson – they’re the very themes that animate his work at large”

“There’s the ongoing battle of control and power versus individual autonomy… and the way technology can be used both to exert and subvert societal control.”

“There’s also the question of empathy. When so much of the world is encountered through a screen, or through virtual or augmented reality, do other people continue to feel real to us? What are the repercussions if they don’t? And what challenges and responsibilities come due when they do feel real?”

The Peripheral is based on a real novel

The novel is written by William Gibson. Scott B. Smith “Going into making the project, it was really important to have all that information. That way, we really understood the scope and the rules.”
