Project Based on Classic Sci-Fi Book Gets Pilot Order Deadline
A project based on a classic sci-fi book has received a pilot order, reports Deadline.com. The project, ordered by Syfy, is based on the 1969 book "The Lotus Caves."
Called "High Moon," the adaptation will be executive produced by Robert Halmi Sr. and "Pushing Daisies" creator Bryan Fuller, the story notes.
The 90-minute pilot will start production in Vancouver this fall. The project has been in development at Syfy for two years.
The story focuses on a future where the countries of Earth have started colonies to mine the Moon, but find a new life form.
