Mention the name Bryan Fuller to any avid TV viewer and shows like ‘Pushing Daisies’, ‘Wonderfalls’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Hannibal’ come to mind. Well, TV fans just might have another show to add to that list: High Moon

Syfy recently announced they will begin production on this pilot, which is an adaptation of John Christopher’s best-selling novel “The Lotus Caves”, with Fuller and Jim Danger Gray (‘Pushing Daisies’ and ‘Hannibal’) at the reins along with Universal Cable Productions serving as the studio.

‘High Moon’ is an imaginative, out-of-this-world series exploring what happens when the countries of Earth establish colonies to mine the Moon’s resources and discover a new form of life. Chaos erupts in a genuinely emotional, humorously thrilling and always unexpected fashion as the people of the Moon race to uncover this life form’s powerful secrets.

The pilot will be written by Gray from a story by Fuller and Gray while Fuller will share executive producer duties with Cary Grant and Steve Granat of Reel FX as well as Don Murphy and Susan Montford of Angry Films (‘Reel Steel’). Gray will serve as a co-executive producer and writer along with Fuller.

Syfy President, Mark Stern, had this to say about the project, “In the hands of visionary Bryan Fuller and this outstanding production team, ‘High Moon’ will be an imaginative, groundbreaking story featuring complex characters in a high-stakes drama. This represents our commitment to quality programming that redefines the genre and we’re excited to begin production”.

Since this is a pilot only there are no other details available at this time; but it certainly sounds like a perfect fit for Syfy and with Fuller at the commands, it will, no doubt, be a visually stunning pilot.
