According to Blastr, two classic science fiction novels are headed to the SyFy channel.
The first is Ringworld by Larry Niven. The four-hour miniseries version of Ringworld follows a team of deep-space explorers investigating an alien artifact. (Guess which one?) The team crash-lands, encounters alien technology, and discovers the ruins of a lost civilization that could control the fate of the world.
The second novel is Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke, which depicts the effects of an alien invasion that “turns the Earth into a near-utopia”.
Blastr notes other miniseries adaptations in the works at SyFy: Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King, The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick and an apocalyptic project titled Darkfall.
