A new series has been picked up by Syfy titled "The Ark". The new series will be set 100 years in the future and deal with the first planetary colonization missions.
"I'm so excited to have the opportunity to partner with Syfy again and can't think of a better collaborator than Jonathan Glassner to bring this series to life," said writer Dean Devlin.
Lisa Katz, president of scripted content for NBCU Entertainment and Streaming, said, "‘The Ark' is a perfect fit for Syfy audiences and we know fans will gravitate to this heart-racing story from Dean Devlin, one of the most accomplished and respected sci-fi writers working today. With the recent success of both ‘Resident Alien' and ‘Chucky,' the network is home to several of the most creative storytellers working in all of television."
Devlin will also be producing the series through Electric Entertainment alongside Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson, as well as Jonathan English of Balkanic Media.
Production is slated to begin in March.
