Apparently Syfy read my bitter recriminations about their lack of scripted development and has moved expeditiously to rectify the situation.
And best yet - look! Actual space-based series, will wonders never cease!
Bryan Fuller is Executive Producer:
High Moon – Based on the novel, The Lotus Caves, by John Christopher, this imaginative, out-of-this-world series explores a world where the countries of Earth have established colonies to mine the Moon’s resources. When a new life form is discovered, chaos erupts as various factions race to uncover its powerful secrets.
And Robert Hewitt Wolfe's series survived! I was getting pretty worried without any news.
Defender – In the aftermath of an intergalactic war between humans and transhumans, the starship Defender, populated by a combustible mix of former enemies, is sent on a seemingly simple goodwill mission, which turns into a fight for their lives and for the safety of the Universe at large.
This is big enough news that I think I'll give it its own thread.
