Not content as a merely a platform showcasing genre reruns, Syfy has been churning out an impressive haul of programming over the last few years, including HELIX and DOMINION. The broadcaster has now also given an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s 1953 novel CHILDHOOD’S END the greenlight.

Produced by Akiva Goldsman and Mike DeLuca, the series will focus on a breed of aliens dubbed the Overlords who invade and rule over Earth peacefully, creating a quasi-paradise in the place of culture and identity. Nick Hurran (DOCTOR WHO / SHERLOCK) will be directing, with LIFE ON MARS’ Matthew Graham adapting.

Syfy President, David Howe, commenting on the upcoming show, has stated “As we aggressively develop scripted programming over a diverse creative landscape, we want our content to reflect the greatest sci-fi stories from the past and the present. The powerful themes of CHILDHOOD’S END, from the fearsome price of peace and prosperity, to the very question of what constitutes a human being, remain fascinating and timeless. This will be the most ambitious project for Syfy in many years.”
