Eleventh Hour Films and Sony’s International TV branch will team on “Rendlesham,” a new TV series about a UK 1980s UFO incident.
On Boxing Day in 1980, U.S. Air Force security patrols stationed at RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk saw lights descending into nearby Rendlesham Forest. When servicemen went to investigate, they found a metallic object with glowing lights in the middle of the forest.
When approached the object moved through the woods, and the next day impressions were found in a triangular shape in the forest clearing. Two days later further lights in the distance.
The show will span from that time through to 2020 and will weave a complex family drama into the events. Joe Ahearne (“Doctor Who”) will direct with Eve Gutierrez and Jill Green executive producing.
