Syfy Ready to Enter The Lotus Caves at High Moon
Syfy sure is on a roll as we have a third new project to fill you cats in on! The network has handed out a pilot order for "High Moon," an adaptation of John Christopher’s cult 1969 young-adult sci-fi novel The Lotus Caves.
Deadline reports that veteran longform producer Robert Halmi Sr. and "Pushing Daisies" creator creator Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal") executive produce the project, written/executive produced by Jim Danger Gray ("Pushing Daisies"). Canadian-based Reunion Pictures is producing the 90-minute pilot which is expected to begin production in Vancouver this fall. Reunion Pictures’ Matthew O’Connor, Lisa Richardson and Tom Rowe also exec produce.
"High Moon," which had been in development at Syfy for two years, creates a future 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 and exploit its powerful secrets. “This is a fresh and compelling vision of an exotic new world driven by character, intrigue and greed,” Syfy’s president original content Mark Stern said. Halmi Sr.’s The Halmi Co. will distribute the project worldwide outside of Canada.
