Lightyears - Sci-Fi Drama Ordered to Series by Amazon


The streamer has issued a series order for “Lightyears,” an hourlong sci-fi-drama produced by Legendary, Variety has learned exclusively from sources.

“Lightyears” hails from Holden Miller and “The Son” writer and “Into the Badlands” producer Daniel C. Connolly. Argentinian director Juan José Campanella (who is best known for directing Oscar winner “The Secret In Their Eyes” and multiple episodes of AMC’s “Halt And Catch Fire”) has been tapped to helm and executive produce the first two episodes.

The series centers around Franklin and Irene York, a couple who years ago discovered a chamber buried in their backyard which inexplicably leads to a strange, deserted planet. They’ve carefully guarded their secret ever since, but when an enigmatic young man enters their lives, the Yorks’ quiet existence is quickly upended, and the mysterious chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could ever have imagined.
