A TV show featurette for Nightflyers (2018) has been released by Syfy. The Nightflyers featurette, entitled ‘First Look’, gives the viewer the glimpses of footage from the upcoming science fiction, horror TV series. Various cast and crew speak during the featurette, including George R.R. Martin, who wrote the novella the TV series is based on. A 1987 film was previous created from the novella.

Nightflyers‘ plot synopsis: “follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.”

Nightflyers stars Gretchen Mol, Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Brían F. O’Byrne.

The pilot episode for Nightflyers was directed by Mike Cahill.
