Eric Balfour (“24,” “Haven”) and “Fargo” producer Warren Littlefield are teaming for a TV series adaptation of Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s best-selling Starbound novel trilogy launcher “These Broken Stars” for MGM TV.
In the story a massive luxury space liner falls out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. The daughter of the richest man in the universe and a young war hero who comes from nothing are the only survivors. The pair must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie deserted terrain to seek help.
Both Freeform and Sky TV are eyeing development of the space romance series which “Continuum” creator Simon Barry will write. It’s uncertain that Balfour will act in the project which he would executive produce.
