Syfy orders 6-hour space drama Ascension
Syfy's new space travel drama Ascension is coming our way in November 2014...
Smallville's Philip Levens is the writer/creator of Ascension, a new six-hour drama coming to Syfy in November. It's the story of a covert space mission, launched by the US government in 1963 that sent hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension.
The series picks up fifty years into the journey, at "the point of no return", when a mysterious event "causes the ship's population to question the true nature of their mission".
Ascension is due to go into production in Canada shortly. There's been no word on casting as yet, but we'll keep you posted.
