Bryan Fuller to Explore John Christopher’s Lotus Caves
Everybody wants “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller to write for their show, it seems, but the guy hasn’t had much look in launching his own shows. “Daisies” was well-received by critics, and those who actually bothered to watch it really liked it, but unfortunately, not enough people watched it and it got canceled.
Fuller is now back in the sci-fi game, and has signed up to adapt John Christopher’s novel “The Lotus Caves” for the SyFy Channel.
Yes, this will be a TV movie, and it is the SyFy Channel, so I’m expecting something between great and really cheesy. Great, because Fuller is involved, and cheesy because, well, it is the SyFy Channel, after all, and these guys love cheese in their sci-fi movies.
“The Lotus Caves” revolves around rebellious lunar colonists who dare to take a peek beyond their borders, only to discover intelligent aliens living in the titular caves.
