Syfy has put into development a new one-hour drama series title No Place from Fox Television Studios, director/producer Robert Zemeckis, producers Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine, and feature film writing team John Brancato and Michael Ferris.
No Place follows the residents of a high-tech gated community who awaken one morning to find themselves alone and cut off from the rest of reality – nothing exists beyond the community’s walls. Only one man has contact with the powers responsible for what is known as “The Rift,” and he must lead his fellow residents beyond the void to discover the truth. John Brancato and Michael Ferris are writing the pilot, which will bre produced by Fox Television Studios, Top Cpw and Circle of Confusion. The executive producers are Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, John Brancato, Michael Ferris, Matt Hawkins and Marc Silvestri.
“We are very excited to be in business with this amazing A-list team,” said Mark Stern, President of Original Content for Syfy & Co-Head of Original Content for Universal Cable Productions. “We look forward to them bringing their high-quality feature-level sensibility to this taut sci-fi drama.”
