'NIGHTFLYERS' SF SERIES
GETS PILOT ORDER AT SYFY
here's also another sf project that I announced earlier but it has now been greenlit by SyFy
! They have officially ordered a pilot for sf series NIGHTFLYERS
based on a super natural novella by George R.R.
|The writer won't be working on the series|

NIGHTFLYERS has the story set in the future on the eve of Earth’s destruction. In the hope of making contact with alien life, eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard the Nightflyer, a ship with a small, tight-knit crew and a reclusive captain. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question one another — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.
