Syfy just isn’t stopping, and for the first time in a long time, that’s actually a good thing. Their intriguing event series Ascension, starring Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer, premieres next month, and Syfy’s future is packed with promising projects such as The Expanse, Old Man’s War, and Childhood’s End. Now we can add yet another project to the lineup of Syfy shows we can’t wait to see, an adaptation of the Dark Horse comics series Dark Matter.
Created by Stargate writer/producers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, Dark Matter was a limited series that ran from January – April 2012. The story involves a group of people who awaken aboard a spacecraft with no memory of who they are or how they got there. With the vessel on course for a mining colony, the crew begins to discover the disturbing truth about their identity. Mallozzi has said that The Dirty Dozen, Thunderbolts, and the FX series The Shield all inspired the show.
