Syfy has handed out a pilot order to “High Moon,” an adaptation of John Christopher’s popular 1969 young-adult sci-fi novel “The Lotus Caves,” reports DL. Veteran longform producer Robert Halmi Sr. and “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal”, “Dead Like Me”) executive produce the project, written/executive produced by Jim Danger Gray (“Pushing Daisies”).
“High Moon,” which had been in development at Syfy for two years, “creates a future where the countries of Earth have established colonies to mine the Moon’s resources. When a new life form is discovered, chaos erupts as various factions race to uncover and exploit its powerful secrets.”
