Nightflyers video: First look at George R.R. Martin's space series
'Game of Thrones' author: "It's 'Psycho' in space"
Above is the first footage from Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s upcoming space horror series Nightflyers.
The 10-episode series airs this fall on Syfy and is described by Martin in the above clip as being like “Psycho in space” (in a separate interview, showrunner Jeff Buhler preferred “either Alien with a ghost or The Shining in space,” but you get the general idea).
The tale is set 75 years in the future where a group of scientists aboard the starship Nightflyer make first contact with an alien race. As you might expect, things don’t go very well.
The series stars Gretchen Mol, Eoin Macken, David Ajala and Sam Strike.
