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...)

Dark Matter's season 2 episode 2 was pretty damn good. Definitely got me hooked back into the series, especially after episode 1 was nothing more than a "the story so far..." kind of mash-up. Haven't checked out what Killjoys has done in their second season yet. Think with the time I have, I may wait until the season is done and then just binge it.

Killjoys hasn't been too bad. Their continuing to setup up an overarching baddie/conspiracy.

My favorite part of Dark Matter is #1 getting whacked. Hated him. Hope they don't bring him back. Like the introduction of new characters, too. Assuming the new Dr. is a plant. Now they just need to get rid of Android. She's horrible. Gimme some Rommie!

Started watching this the other night because it is now available on Amazon Prime. About 5 episodes in, so I'm not reading the thread yet. But it's great so far.

I would agree with this. Probably going to try to re-watch Season 1 before the new season kicks in.

Star Trek is looking more and more like a cluster ****, which is sad.

Finished season one. I love this show. Best Sci-fi show since BSG.

Dark Matter is pretty good. I'm with Unlurking on being glad they killed off whiney ass #1. That dude was annoying as ****. I only saw the first few episodes of Killjoys before I got rid of cable TV and that one hasn't showed up on Netflix or anything else that I have found.

But The Expanse is definitely a step up from either of those. Interesting plot, awesome visuals, good characters. I'm tempted to read the books.

Second season of Killjoys was fantastic. Really upped the bar.

Second season of The Expanse should be amazing. Season 1 basically ends at the point that the first book kicks into high gear.
