HYPERION is the Latest High Profile Project From Syfy

By on June 10, 2015

Syfy has done it again. Following on the heels of such high profile adaptations as Childhood’s End, The Magicians and The Expanse, comes Hyperion, from producers Bradley Cooper, Graham King and Todd Phillips.

Based on Dan Simmons’ Hugo Award-winning best-selling novel, Hyperion is being developed as an event series for Syfy, it emerged today.

“It is an absolute honor to enter into the world created by Dan Simmons that is arguably one of the greatest works of science fiction, and help realize it for television audiences,” Cooper said in a statement.

Set on the eve of Armageddon with the entire galaxy at war, Hyperion is the story of seven pilgrims who set forth on a voyage to seek the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope and a terrible secret — while one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands.
Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller: “As Syfy continues to forge important partnerships with award-winning talent on and off screen, this powerhouse team led by Bradley Cooper, Graham King and Todd Phillips brings an extraordinary track record in producing entertainment of the highest creative ambition. Epitomizing the gold standard of science fiction story-telling, Hyperion tackles smart and provocative themes that help define Syfy’s development vision.”

“Hyperion is a science fiction masterpiece. Dan Simmons’ universe is unique and darkly compelling, and the creative team assembled here is simply as good as it gets,” added Jeff Wachtel, President & Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.
