Syfy Orders High Moon Pilot, Based on John Christopher’s The Lotus Caves
The last time we reported on Syfy’s adaptation of John Christopher’s “The Lotus Caves” book, we thought Syfy was looking at a movie, or mini-series. Turns out, they’re looking at turning it into an ongoing series, and have made the first move by ordering a pilot from producers Bryan Fuller and Robert Halmi Sr.
Jim Danger Gray, who worked with Fuller on the critically acclaimed but one-year wonder “Pushing Daisies”, will write the 90-minute pilot, which is expected to begin production in Vancouver this fall.
Wow. That’s fast. Have they even cast this thing yet?
“High Moon” is set in the future and on the moon, where colonies have been established and now mine the rock for resources. The Christopher books follow two young boys who live in one of the colonies, who inadvertently stumble across an alien life form in the caves of the moon.
