SYFY DEVELOPING TWO CLASSIC SCIENCE FICTION NOVELS TO MINISERIES

LARRY NIVEN'S RINGWORLD FROM MGM TELEVISION AND UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

ARTHUR C. CLARKE'S CHILDHOOD'S END WITH MICHAEL DELUCA AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

NEW YORK - April 10, 2013 - Syfy announced today it is developing miniseries based on two of science fiction's greatest novels: Larry Niven's Ringworld and Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End. They join the previously announced Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle from Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions, writer/executive producer Frank Spotnitz, Headline Pictures and FremantleMedia International, Stephen King's Eyes of the Dragon, from Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and Ostar Productions, and Darkfall, also from UCP and Jim Henson Productions, as long form productions.

Adapted by writer Michael Perry (The River, Paranormal Activity 2), Ringworld is based on Niven's best-selling book and is being developed as a four-hour mini-series Syfy event. The project is a co-production of MGM Television and Universal Cable Productions (UCP), with MGM as the lead studio. Executive producers are William S. Todman Jr. and Edward Milstein.

Childhood's End will be executive produced by Michael DeLuca (The Social Network) with Universal Cable Productions serving as the studio.

In making the announcement, Mark Stern, President, Original Content, Syfy, and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions, said: "We're proud to bring to life these science fiction masterpieces, Ringworld and Childhood's End. With their brilliant scope of imagination, the astonishing visions of these two novels created riveting possibilities into the future of humanity which remain timely and provocative."

In Ringworld, a hastily-assembled team of explorers travels to the farthest reaches of space to investigate a mind-blowing alien artifact called Ringworld - an artificial habitat the size of one million Earths. As they crash land on this enormous structure, they discover the remnants of ancient civilizations, technology beyond their wildest dreams, mysteries that shed light on the very origins of man and, most importantly, a possible salvation for a doomed Earth.

Childhood's End follows a peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival ends all war and turns the planet into a near-utopia.
