Silo is based on a book series of the same name by Hugh Howey and adapted for Television by Graham Yost (Justified). Silo takes us to a dystopian future that exists in the deep underground where the last ten thousand surviving humans live in the Silo, and they are told that the outside world is uninhabitable but skepticism about that statement is baked in from the start both in the characters and the audience. The one in the Silo everybody has to follow is to not say that someone wants to go outside it because if they do they will be sent outside to die alone.
