WEFOUNDGeorge R.R. Martin’s Doorways


George R.R. Martin ’s “ Nightflyers ” is nearing a series order at Syfy ,  Variety has confirmed with sources.

Based on Martin’s novella of the same name, the story follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system in the hopes of contacting alien life. They travel aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other, and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought. The network revealed they were developing the novella as a series back in May. It was previously adapted into the 1987 film of the same name.

From Universal Cable Productions, “ Nightflyers ” will be executive produced by Gene Klein, David Bartis, and Doug Liman of Hypnotic. Jeff Buhler will write the script and also executive produce along with Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films. Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions will also executive produce with Robert Jaffe producing.

Born in 1948, fantasy writer George R. R. Martin grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey. He developed a love for writing early on. His first novel, Dying of the Light , debuted in 1977. In 1996, he published his first installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Martin became a best-selling author in 2005 with the fourth title A Feast for Crows and again in 2011 with the fifth A Dance with Dragons .

A leading fantasy author, George R. R. Martin grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey where his world "was five blocks long." He may have spent his early years never straying far from home, but his imagination seemed to take him places. The oldest of three children, Martin liked to watch offbeat and suspenseful television shows, such as Thriller and The Twilight Zone .

A conscientious objector during the Vietnam War, Martin worked with the Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation as part of his alternative service from 1973 to 1976. He then spent two years as a college professor at Clarke College in Dubuque, Iowa.

George R.R. Martin still hasn’t officially said when The Winds of Winter , the sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series that serves as the basis for HBO’s Game of Thrones series , will come out. (And don’t hold your breath for any news about the planned seventh and final book in the series, A Dream of Spring . ) But for fans who are eager to peek inside the mind of the series’ creator — or just find entertainment in the same things that entertained him — here are five books by authors that Martin says have influenced him in one way or another.

Martin has called J.R.R. Tolkien his “great model” in shaping the overarching plot of his series. “If you look at Lord of the Rings , it begins with a tight focus and all the characters are together. Then by end of the first book the Fellowship splits up and they have different adventures. I did the same thing. Everybody is at Winterfell in the beginning except for Dany, then they split up into groups, and ultimately those split up too. The intent was to fan out, then curve and come back together.”

Tad Williams’ fantasy series Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn served as a catalyst for Martin to write his own. “I read The Dragonbone Chair [the first book in the series] and said, “My god, they can do something with this form,” and it’s Tad doing it. It’s one of my favorite fantasy series.”

Martin , [2] is an American novelist and short-story writer in the fantasy , horror , and science fiction genres, screenwriter, and television producer. He is best known for his series of epic fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire , which was later adapted into the HBO series Game of Thrones (2011–present).

In 2005, Lev Grossman of Time called Martin "the American Tolkien ", [3] and in 2011, he was included on the annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world. [4] [5]

George Raymond Martin (he later adopted the confirmation name Richard at 13 years old) [6] was born on September 20, 1948, [7] in Bayonne, New Jersey , [8] the son of longshoreman Raymond Collins Martin and his wife Margaret Brady Martin. He has two younger sisters, Darleen and Janet. His father was of half Italian descent, while his mother was of half Irish ancestry. [9] He also has French , English , Welsh and German roots. [10]

The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has picked up the drama based on the Game of Thrones creator's novella to pilot.

The news comes a month after Syfy put the Universal Cable Productions drama in development as part of its upfront presentation to ad buyers.

Based on Martin's 1980 novella and the 1987 film of the same name, Nightflyers is set in the future on the eve of Earth's destruction and follows a crew of explorers who 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.

Syfy is near a deal to pick up the Game of Thrones creator's Nightflyers to series. Representatives from the NBCUniversal-owned cable network and producers Universal Cable Productions declined comment as multiple deals are still in the works. Among them: UCP is negotiating with Netflix for a second window domestic and first window international streaming deal.

The  Nightflyers  series pickup comes as Syfy is fresh off rebranding its on-air look as part of a greater push to focus on science fiction. As part of the move, the cabler recently picked up Superman prequel  Krypton  and graphic novel take  Happy  to series. Nightflyers was part of a pilot crop at Syfy that also included The Machine, Haunted, Prototype and Tremors. The network has passed on The Machine , Haunted and Prototype, with the fate of Tremors still to be determined.

Syfy's scripted roster includes 12 Monkeys, Channel Zero, The Expanse, The Magicians, Killjoys , Z Nation, Wynonna Earp and Van Helsing. Blood Drive and Dark Matter were recently canceled.
