Netflix's 3 Body Problem, based on a Chinese novel by Liu Cixin, marks David Benioff and D. B. Weiss' first major project for the streaming service. The show, set for a March 21 release, has received early praise for its handling of complex source material. Cast members Alex Sharp and Liam Cunningham compared it to Game of Thrones at SXSW. Sharp highlighted intricate character relationships, while Cunningham noted the challenging nature of adapting "unfilmable" books. The show, with a $160 million budget, may replicate the success of their prior fantasy series, considering their experience with complex source material. Despite potential challenges due to the source material's high-concept nature, Benioff and Weiss have the skills to deliver another hit. 3 Body Problem starts streaming on Netflix on March 21, featuring a detective teaming up with scientists to solve mysterious scientist deaths.
