What are the ''Odds Against Tomorrow'' becoming a TV show or movie?

"Odds Against Tomorrow"

by Nat Rich, published now in French and English

In the not-too-distant future, the world is ravaged by climate change -- and capitalism has exploited even that. A gifted Jewish mathematician is hired by a shady consulting firm in New York. Asked to calculate worst case environmental scenarios, his schemes are sold to corporations, who invent the technologies necessary to protect themselves and the rich from such disasters. When an actual worst case scenario affects Manhattan, the mathematician realizes he is uniquely prepared to profit from it, but questions doing so, when his loved ones and New York itself could pay the price. There's some interesting and very timely commentary here, and though this was merely one novel, it seems like this anti-corporate, pro-climate narrative could easily be expanded into a multi-season series.
