Syfy has given the green-light to a pilot of High Moon, an adaptation of John Christopher’s best-selling novel The Lotus Caves. The project has been in development at the network since last April.
Based on The Lotus Caves, High Moon was developed by Jim Danger Gray and Bryan Fuller. The project is an imaginative, out-of-this-world series exploring what happens when the countries of Earth establish colonies to mine the Moon’s resources and discover a new form of life. Chaos erupts in a genuinely emotional, humorously thrilling and always unexpected fashion as the people of the Moon race to uncover this life form’s powerful secrets. Universal Cable Productions is producing with Cary Granat, Steve Granat, Don Murphy and Susan Montford serving as executive producers.
“In the hands of visionary Bryan Fuller and this outstanding production team, High Moon will be an imaginative, groundbreaking story featuring complex characters in a high-stakes drama”, said Mark Stern, President of Original Content for Syfy, and Co-Head of Original Content for Universal Cable Productions. “This represents our commitment to quality programming that redefines the genre and we’re excited to begin production.”
