Syfy has released a first look at their new series “Nightflyers” from “Game of Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin. The clip offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the series dubbed a “haunted house story on a starship” and has quotes from Martin himself.
“Nightflyers” follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain – in the hope of making contact with alien life.
But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other – and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought. Gretchen Mol, Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith and Brían F. O’Byrne star.
Jeff Buhler (“Jacob’s Ladder”) wrote the adaptation for television and will executive produce. Daniel Cerone (“The Blacklist”) was originally slated to serve as showrunner but he has exited the series with Buhler taking over.
Mike Cahill (“I Origin”) directed the pilot with the series to premiere on Syfy in the U.S. and Netflix around the rest of the world this Fall.
