Syfy released first-look trailers for its upcoming drama series Nightlflyers and Deadly Class during NBCUniversal's upfront event Monday morning.
Nightflyers, based on a novella by George R. R. Martin, chronicles the actions of a group of maverick scientists and a powerful telepath as they embark on an expedition in hopes of making contact with a mysterious alien life at the edge of our solar system. As they race towards first contact, terrifying and violent events begin to occur, causing the once tight-knit crew to mistrust each other. It's not long before their main mission becomes survival, according to Syfy.
Deadly Class, based on the best-selling 2014 Image Comics graphic novel of the same name, follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations.
Deadly Class will debut on Syfy in 2019.
