Daniel Cerone has exited as showrunner for the upcoming Syfy series Nightflyers, leaving the network to ask, “Anyone… anyone… Buhler?” Executive producer Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train), who penned the TV adaptation, will take over, according to Deadline. Cerone (Constantine) joined the project in January when Syfy gave it a series order, but he is working on other projects now with Universal Cable Productions.
Nightflyers is based on a novella by George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) and a 1987 film adaptation by UCP. It follows eight scientists and a powerful telepath that head out on a journey of exploration to the outer edge of the solar system on board a ship called the Nightflyer. There hope is to make contact with alien life — but things go very wrong when violent events take place and everyone from the scientist and the crew to the ships captain begin to suspect each other.
The cast includes Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire) as Dr. Agatha Matheson, Eoin Macken (The Night Shift) as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (EastEnders) as Thale, Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (Fargo) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship) as Melantha Jhirl, and Brían F. O’Byrne (Million Dollar Baby) as Auggie.
Mike Cahill (I Origin) will direct the pilot.
