SYFY GREENLIGHTS TO SERIES SUPERMAN PREQUEL ‘KRYPTON’ AND ‘HAPPY!’ STARRING CHRISTOPHER MELONI AND WILL BE DEVELOPING GEORGE R.R. MARTIN’S ‘NIGHTFLYERS’ WITH UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

NEW YORK, NY – MAY 11, 2017 – As SYFY unveils an all-new look and feel set to debut June 19, the network today announced three additions to its powerhouse slate of original programming, including series pickups for highly anticipated Superman prequel KRYPTON and HAPPY!, a graphic novel adaptation starring Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”). Additionally, SYFY and Universal Cable Productions announced a new development project based on author George R.R. Martin’s novella NIGHTFLYERS.

“SYFY is partnering with the biggest names in the business to tell the boldest stories in the sci-fi world, and I can’t think of any bigger and bolder than KRYPTON, HAPPY! and NIGHTFLYERS,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.

KRYPTON

Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, “The Halcyon”) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. Based on DC characters, KRYPTON is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight” trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (“Sleepy Hollow”) will serve as executive producer and showrunner.

In addition to Cuffe, KRYPTON stars Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”), Elliot Cowan (“Da Vinci’s Demons”), Ann Ogbomo (“World War Z”), Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness”), Wallis Day (“Will”), Aaron Pierre (“Tennison”) with Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”).

The pilot teleplay was written by Goyer and Kindler, from a story by Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) & Goyer, with Colm McCarthy (“She Who Brings Gifts,” “Peaky Blinders”) serving as director and co-executive producer. KRYPTON is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC.

HAPPY!

Universal Cable Productions’ HAPPY! is based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name. The series follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni, “Law & Order: SVU”) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named “Happy” (Bobby Moynihan, “Saturday Night Live”).

Executive producers Grant Morrison (“Batman,” “The Invisibles”) and Brian Taylor (“Crank,” “Gamer”) co-wrote the pilot teleplay. Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Toby Jaffe of Original Film (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise), Meloni and showrunner Patrick Macmanus will also executive produce. Taylor directed the pilot.

NIGHTFLYERS

SYFY and Universal Cable Productions are developing a supernatural thriller based on author George R.R. Martin’s (“Game of Thrones”) epic novel NIGHTFLYERS. Set in the future on the eve of Earth’s destruction, a crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival. As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship’s artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space.

NIGHTFLYERS is being developed with executive producers Gene Klein (“Suits”), David Bartis (“Mr. and Mrs. Smith”) and Doug Liman (“Suits”) of Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig (“Jacob’s Ladder,” “Windtalkers”) and Michael Gaeta (“Jacob’s Ladder”) of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions and Jeff Buhler (“Jacob’s Ladder”), who will write the adaptation. Robert Jaffe (“Nightflyers (1987)”) will produce.

NIGHTFLYERS joins previously announced high-profile projects in development at SYFY including BRAVE NEW WORLD, a scripted series based on one of the most influential genre novels of all time, with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television; HYPERION, based on Dan Simmons’ Hugo Award-winning bestselling novel, which is being developed with Oscar®-nominated producer Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper”), Oscar-winning producer Graham King (“The Departed,” “Argo”) and Todd Phillips (“The Hangover,” “Old School”); and STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND, based on the groundbreaking science fiction novel by Robert Heinlein. BRAVE NEW WORLD and HYPERION are from Universal Cable Productions, while STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND is a co-production between Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions.

KRYPTON and HAPPY! will join a rich 2017-18 lineup of original scripted series on SYFY, including sci-fi drama THE EXPANSE and fantasy series THE MAGICIANS, both greenlit for third seasons for 2018; time travel thriller 12 MONKEYS, greenlit for third and fourth seasons for 2017 and 2018; KILLJOYS, which returns for its third season in Summer 2017; and the CHANNEL ZERO horror anthology, which will return in October 2017 for its second installment.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
