Syfy has greenlit production for a six-hour miniseries, Childhood’s End, said network officials.
The miniseries, based on the popular Sci-fi-based Arthur C. Clarke novel, will be executively produced by Akiva Goldsman (Lone Survivor, A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) and Mike De Luca (Captain Philips, Moneyball, The Social Network), said network officials.
“As we aggressively develop scripted programming over a diverse creative landscape, we want our content to reflect the greatest sci-fi stories from the past and the present,” said Syfy president Dave Howe in a statement. “The powerful themes of Childhood’s End, from the fearsome price of peace and prosperity, to the very question of what constitutes a human being, remain fascinating and timeless. This will be the most ambitious project for Syfy in many years.”
