Nightflyers will be a drama that follows eight scientists and a powerful telepath who board the Nightflyer ship and journey to the edges of our solar system in the hopes of making contact with alien life. Daniel Cerone (The Blacklist, Dexter, Constantine, The Mentalist) will serve as showrunner. When terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question each other. Martin's novella, which had previously been adapted into a feature film in 1987 to a generally negative reaction, will be produced by Syfy's production arm Universal Cable Productions. Martin will also executive produce, along with Gene Klein, David Bartis, and Doug Liman of Hypnotic. It's set in Martin's "Thousand Worlds" universe, which despite containing a thousand worlds, could not find room for Westeros. Andrew McCarthy (the one from all of those teen movies in the "80s) will be a producer-director, while Another Earth's Mike Cahill will direct the pilot".
