SYFY Announces Series Order For NIGHTFLYERS Based on George RR Martin's Novella

Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire) is set to star as Dr. Agatha Matheson, alongside Eoin Macken (The Night Shift) as Karl D'Branin, David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (EastEnders) as Thale, Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (Fargo) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship) as Melantha Jhirl and Brían F. O'Byrne (Million Dollar Baby) as Auggie.

Daniel Cerone (The Blacklist, Dexter, Constantine, The Mentalist, Dirty Sexy Money) cowrote the series, and will serve as showrunner; Martin will of course, executive produce, and we'll update you on a premiere date when the announcement is made. While the series will air on Syfy in the United States, it will be available on Netflix internationally. Along the way, the crew are victimized by the computer system on board the ship (dubbed "The Nightflyer.") A series of terrifying and deadly events occur which have the crew doubting their journey as well as their own sanity. However, when violent and inexplicable events begin befalling the small crew of the spaceship Nightflyer, they realize the journey will be far more unsafe than the every imagined.

AMERICAN cable television channel SYFY has confirmed a "series order" for George RR Martin's Nightflyers, which will be shot at Limerick's Troy Studios. Onboard as executive producers are Gene Klein, David Bartis and Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity franchise blockbuster director Doug Liman, all of whom are representing production company Hypnotic, which Liman co-owns with Bartis. These eight characters will share a shuttle in the upcoming series for Syfy, and they'll be on a search for intelligent life. Robert Jaffe will produce. Andrew McCarthy will also be a producer/director on the project, with Mike Cahill helming the pilot.

Speaking of that other book (The Winds of Winter), related to the wintry series - Game of Thrones - does anyone think we'll see it finished before the HBO adaptation's final season?
