An adaptation of work from “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin is part of a slate of new original programming announced today by NBCUniversal’s Syfy cable channel.
The channel also announced plans for a new “visual identity” including a new logo, which officially rolls out June 19. (You can see a sample of the new logo below, with other variations on the theme found at the various links in this story.)
Among the new projects is a supernatural thriller based on Martin’s epic novel “Nightflyers.” The project is in the works from Syfy and Universal Cable Productions.
“Set in the future on the eve of Earth’s destruction, a crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival,” Syfy said in announcing the project today. “As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship’s artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space.”
