Syfy has acquired the rights to the 2012 Dark Horse comic mini-series “Dark Matter” with Prodigy Pictures producing a thirteen-episode first season of the space opera to air in 2015.
“Stargate” series writers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie created the comic which follows the crew of a derelict spaceship awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board.
Facing threats all around them, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with betrayal and hidden secrets.
The project is one of several comic adaptations in the works at Syfy. Others include the supernatural treasure hunting series “Five Ghosts,” Frank Miller’s samurai drama “Ronin” and the political space tale “Letter 44”.
