George R.R. Martin Goes Horror With ‘Nightflyers’ | TV Trailer
When you ask people from where they know George R.R. Martin they will probably answer with Game of Thrones. As this is his biggest success this isn’t really surprising but maybe this could change this year. Why? Syfy has just released the first look at another series that comes from this great mind. It is quite different to what we know from him.
Nightflyers is based on a novella from 1980 and movie from 1987. Now it is coming back as a TV show. It will be set in a spaceship and follow eight scientists, a telepath, and his psychologist. They are on their way to the edge of our solar system to make contact with an alien life form. But then horrifying and violent events take place and they begin to misstrust each other.
The show will star Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith and Brían F. O’Byrne. The show will air in fall.
