Syfy has begun development of the hourlong sci-fi drama “The Woods” based on James Tynion IV’s graphic novel series of the same name. “San Andreas” helmer Brad Peyton is producing and set to direct while Michael Armbruster is penning the scripts.
The story is set in Wisconsin where an entire high school campus – including all three hundred people who happen to be there at the time – vanishes without a trace. They reappear in the middle of a dark forest on the moon of a distant planet.
The group must survive the eerie and dangerous environment while desperately trying to find a way to get back home. Peyton, Jeff Fierson, Ross Richie and Stephen Christy will executive produce.
