April 11, 2013 Syfy announced that they have a whole slew of new projects coming up as they more forwarding adapting several novels into new miniseries for the channel including both Larry Niven’s “Ringworld” and Arthur C. Clarke’s “Childhood’s End.”
“No Place” will be created as Syfy joins creative forces with Fox Television Studios, Academy Award-winning director/producer Robert Zemeckis, producers Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine, and feature film writing team John Brancato and Michael Ferris. Zemeckis and Rapke will serve as executive producers along with Brancato and Ferris who will write the pilot.
“No Place” is based on the Top Cow comic book “The Test” by Matt Hawkins and Joshua Hale Fialkov, with illustrations by Rahsan Ekedal.
In “No Place,” residents of a high-tech gated community awaken one morning to find themselves alone and cut off from the rest of reality – nothing exists beyond the community’s walls. Only one man has contact with the powers responsible for what is known as “The Rift,” and he must lead his fellow residents beyond the void to discover the truth.
Circle of Confusion will also produce the project with David Alpert (“The Walking Dead”) and Rick Jacobs as executive producers. Matt Hawkins and Marc Silvestri serve as executive producers for Top Cow.
“We are very excited to be in business with this amazing A-list team,” said Stern. “We look forward to them bringing their high-quality feature-level sensibility to this taut sci-fi drama.”
