Remember Westworld, that cool movie from the ‘70s starring Yul Brynner as a killer cowboy android? Well, even if you don’t, HBO does, and they decided the film was fertile ground in which creators Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest) and Lisa Joy (Burn Notice) could grow a new TV series.

The first teaser for the 2016 series arrived over the weekend, and though it’s only 30 seconds long, it’s wonderfully evocative of a world in which people-who-aren’t-quite-people have been living a lie, humanoid shapes emerge from liquid plastic, and terror looms. We don’t really know yet exactly how Nolan and Joy are planning to stretch this concept into a longform story, but we can’t wait to find out.
