Syfy: The Expanse

I'm really excited about this - it's a fantastic set of books that I think could translate into really good TV.

Quote:
Syfy orders 'The Expanse' series based on 'Leviathan Wakes' (think 'Game of Thrones' in space)

By James Hibberd on Apr 11, 2014 at 6:30PM

Syfy has given a direct-to-series order to an exciting-sounding new project based on an acclaimed sci-fi book series. The cable network has ordered 10 episodes of The Expanse, from Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man) and Alcon Television Group. The project has been described by industry insiders as “Game of Thrones in space” — not so much because of the specifics of the plot, but because it tells a dramatic sprawling grown-up story within a popular fantasy genre that’s based on a respected series of novels.

The logline: “A thriller set two hundred years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.”

The Expanse is based on a series of books by James S.A. Corey. The most well-known title is probably the first in the series, Leviathan Wakes, which has been praised for reinventing and updating the old-school Star Wars/Firefly-style space opera. Syfy won a bidding war with another content producer to acquire the project.

Syfy president Dave Howe promised, “The Expanse is epic in scale and scope and promises to be Syfy’s most ambitious series to date. Bringing this coveted book franchise to television with our partners at Alcon and the Sean Daniel Company is a giant win for Syfy, reinforcing our overall strategy to produce bold, provocative and compelling sci-fi fantasy stories. The Expanse joins a killer line-up of high-concept, high quality series, along with recently announced original projects Ascension, 12 Monkeys, the renewal of Helix, and the soon to premiere Dominion.”

Sean Daniel and Jason Brown of the Sean Daniel Company developed the original pitch, with Fergus and Ostby, and will also executive produce. “The Expanse is one of the most special pieces of material we’ve ever encountered and it has been our dream to bring it to life since the moment we read it,” Daniel and Brown said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to be doing it with this team of all-stars.”

Added Alcon president Sharon Hall: “The Expanse is an addictive, sophisticated, character-driven franchise and Mark and Hawk are the perfect people to steer it. Their script is a totally immersive and accessible sci-fi journey.”
(Just FYI, the author of Leviathan Wakes, James S.A. Corey, is actually a collaberative pseudonym of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. I guess EW didn't know this...)

Great ****ing finale.

I can't get over how comical it is that every Martian save for Bobbie is a dumbass.

Looks like they're writing her into the show as a permanent part of the main crew. In the books, her character is long gone by this point.

But I really have no issue with that, because Bobbie is awesome.

Ok, for whatever reason I never got into this show. I go to watch it on demand with Spectrum, and they only have season 3 available. Don't know if I'm more annoyed at that or over me letting an apparently great show slip by me.

If you have Amazon Prime you can watch it for no extra cost.

Kicked Ass! That finale was great. This has been one of my top three shows for the last couple years. I really really hope next season isn't delayed.

The wife has Prime but I haven't fired up their viewing services. Sounds like it's time to change that up.

Absolutely.

Plus, if you watch it on Prime, you won't have to hear the edited language.

The UN lady in particular cusses like my old boss in the Navy.

Wasn't she back in Nemesis Games and then Babylon's ashes? Been a while since I read...

Think it's finally time to order Persepolis Rising and re-read the series.

May have been - I have the entire series, but I tend to read in spurts and crapped out after the fourth one.

Started re-reading the books for the first time since before the tv show began. Surprising how different the books are in some ways, although the tv series has captured the feel of everything really well. But there are some things I'd completely forgotten, like the Earth and Mars being a coalition at the beginning of Leviathan Wakes.

I’ve been meaning to get into this for a while now. Finally did. Binged the first 2 seasons over the last couple weeks. All excited to start season 3 last night until I discover that only the last 5 episodes are available for streaming on the SyFy app. So dumb.

Finally got caught up. Love this show. Amos is awesome. The reporter chick is a total smoke show.


Edited to provide evidence of smoke show.

Great video and again makes me happy this continues. For the most part the cast has also hit what I’d figured of the various characters while reading the books which is rare. The guys playing Amos and Alex particularly nail it.

Looks like next book is December.
