George RR Martin's 'Nightflyers' Gets Syfy Series Order; Netflix To Co-Produce

The crew begins to question each other after a chilling and violent event begins to take place, proving that surviving the journey will be harder than anyone could have predicted.

Nightflyers stands as one of George R.R. Martin's more intriguing pre-Game of Thrones space science-fiction offerings, starting as a 1980 novella, eventually inspiring a schlocky, limited-release 1987 film adaptation.

Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation for television and will executive produce alongside Daniel Cerone, who will also serve as showrunner.

Martin will be listed as an executive producer on the Nightflyers series, but will not be brought on in any other capacity due to his exclusivity clause with HBO.

These eight characters will share a shuttle in the upcoming series for Syfy, and they'll be on a search for intelligent life. While the series will air in the US on Syfy, Netflix has first-run rights everywhere outside of the U.S. Martin's novella, which had previously been adapted into a feature film in 1987 to a generally negative reaction, will be produced by Syfy's production arm Universal Cable Productions. It's set in Martin's "Thousand Worlds" universe, which despite containing a thousand worlds, could not find room for Westeros.

Andrew McCarthy (Orange is the New Black) will be a producer-director on the project. Mike Cahill will direct the pilot.
