Spike TV is moving into the science-fiction realm — and aiming high — with a new project. The cable channel is developing a scripted drama project based on Kim Stanley Robinson’s acclaimed Mars trilogy, Deadline.com reports.

The trilogy, about the colonization and terraforming of Mars for human habitation, will be produced by Vince Gerardis, a co-executive producer of HBO’s “Game of Thones.” Robinson will serve as a consultant on the project, which is called “Red Mars” — the same title as the first book of the trilogy.

The books have won Nebula and Hugo Awards and are considered “a holy grail for science fiction fans,” the story notes.
