Syfy: The Expanse

I'm really excited about this - it's a fantastic set of books that I think could translate into really good TV.

Quote:
Syfy orders 'The Expanse' series based on 'Leviathan Wakes' (think 'Game of Thrones' in space)

By James Hibberd on Apr 11, 2014 at 6:30PM

Syfy has given a direct-to-series order to an exciting-sounding new project based on an acclaimed sci-fi book series. The cable network has ordered 10 episodes of The Expanse, from Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man) and Alcon Television Group. The project has been described by industry insiders as “Game of Thrones in space” — not so much because of the specifics of the plot, but because it tells a dramatic sprawling grown-up story within a popular fantasy genre that’s based on a respected series of novels.

The logline: “A thriller set two hundred years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.”

The Expanse is based on a series of books by James S.A. Corey. The most well-known title is probably the first in the series, Leviathan Wakes, which has been praised for reinventing and updating the old-school Star Wars/Firefly-style space opera. Syfy won a bidding war with another content producer to acquire the project.

Syfy president Dave Howe promised, “The Expanse is epic in scale and scope and promises to be Syfy’s most ambitious series to date. Bringing this coveted book franchise to television with our partners at Alcon and the Sean Daniel Company is a giant win for Syfy, reinforcing our overall strategy to produce bold, provocative and compelling sci-fi fantasy stories. The Expanse joins a killer line-up of high-concept, high quality series, along with recently announced original projects Ascension, 12 Monkeys, the renewal of Helix, and the soon to premiere Dominion.”

Sean Daniel and Jason Brown of the Sean Daniel Company developed the original pitch, with Fergus and Ostby, and will also executive produce. “The Expanse is one of the most special pieces of material we’ve ever encountered and it has been our dream to bring it to life since the moment we read it,” Daniel and Brown said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to be doing it with this team of all-stars.”

Added Alcon president Sharon Hall: “The Expanse is an addictive, sophisticated, character-driven franchise and Mark and Hawk are the perfect people to steer it. Their script is a totally immersive and accessible sci-fi journey.”
(Just FYI, the author of Leviathan Wakes, James S.A. Corey, is actually a collaberative pseudonym of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. I guess EW didn't know this...)

Woke up around midnight, saw this, thought I must've been hallucinating.

Hey, we won't have all the bad words scrubbed on Prime, either.

This, sneaky pete, man in the high castle, bosch. They're building a good little line up of originals.




Sidebar: So is this going to make Trump flip on the space force? Becuase, you know, we're big in space. But he ****ing hates Bezos and this was announced at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles. Oh, wait, 'International'. Never mind.

Hell Yes!!!!

My favorite show by far. This, by itself, is worth the cost of my Prime membership.

Your analogy is a little off. Cops don't control things, they uphold them. Somebody else makes the laws that they must protect.
Just something to keep in mind.

BTW I'm about dead even in the books with where the show is currently in regards to the ring (about 1/3 into book 3).

But keep in mind the context of why Miller said it
Spoiler!
: the law on Ceres is literally however a guy like Miller wants to apply it. He looks the other way for a bribe (guy in charge of air filtration) or just because (when he caught the Belters siphoning water) and not because of any particular StarHelix directive.

They've blown me away with the job they've done bringing page to screen, in terms of gfx.

Been a while since I read the book, so I'm not sure how faithful to the plot they are (some things feel a little off) but the visuals are just amazing.
