Syfy Orders 'High Moon' to Pilot From Bryan Fuller
The project will be shot north of the border this fall, as will the U.S. channel's separate "Proof" project with feature director M. Night Shyamalan.
TORONTO -- Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) is reteaming with Syfy as the cable network has ordered Reunion Pictures' High Moon to pilot.
The Canadian indie producer Reunion is adapting the John Christopher novel The Lotus Caves, with Fuller executive producing.
The 90-minute pilot, created by Jim Danger Gray, will be shot in Vancouver this fall, and comes one day after THR broke the news that Syfy will be teaming with M. Night Shyamalan for the Proof pilot, also likely to be produced in Canada.
High Moon centers on a future where the countries of the Earth establish colonies to mine the Moon's resources, only to see chaos erupt when new forms of life are discovered.
The pilot was written by Gray, based on a story by Fuller and Gray, who teamed up on Pushing Daisies.
"Bryan and Jim have brought John Christopher's book to life in an incredibly vivid and imaginative way," Mark Stern, president, original content at Syfy, said of the project.
The Halmi Company is to distribute the project worldwide outside of Canada.
Executive producers for Reunion are Matthew O’Connor, Lisa Richardson and Tom Rowe.
Robert Halmi Sr. and Danger Gray will also executive produce.
