Syfy orders 12 Monkeys TV pilot
Syfy has greenlit a pilot for its in-development 12 Monkeys TV series, moving it one step closer to our screens...
One of Syfy's potential new series for next summer, aTV adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 1995 time-travel thriller 12 Monkeys, has moved one run up the ladder to eventual production. The network has green lit a sixty minute pilot, due to go into production this November, from Nikita writers Terry Matalas and Travis Ficket. Gilliam is not involved in the project.
Here's the official blurb about the in-development adaptation:
"Based on the classic hit film, 12 Monkeys follows the journey of a time traveller from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race."
