High Moon

A sci-fi saga set in outer space produced by Bryan Fuller, the creator of Hannibal, Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls? The idea sounded promising when SyFy ordered a 90-minute pilot for High Moon last summer, but alas, the finished product didn’t entice the network to send the show to series. Fuller’s fans and geeks of all stripes can judge for themselves when SyFy airs the pilot as a TV movie on Monday, Sept. 15, at 9 PM.

Based on the novel The Lotus Caves, High Moon stars Jonathan Tucker, Jake Sandvig, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Charity Wakefield and, according to most log lines, is set in a future when/where Earth has established mining colonies on the moon. Things get interesting when a new form of life is discovered.

Actually, that might be just the tip of “interesting,” judging from this exclusive clip, which centers on a bionic man named Stan with a pair of helpful, wandering hands.
