‘Clandestine’: Syfy Orders “Swash-Buckling Space Drama”
Back at the 2012 Upfronts, the Syfy channel announced plans to produce upwards of 28 new shows. Since then, they’ve also added M. Night Mshyamalan’s ‘Proof’ and Bryan Fuller’s ‘High Moon,’ and now one more is being added to the mix.
Deadline reports that Syfy has just put into motion a new show called ‘Clandestine,’ which is being called a “swash-buckling space drama.” (As if we need more of those.) Written by Todd Stashwick and Dennis Calero, the series will follow a group of space mercenaries who pose as members of an Intergalactic fleet. Sounds a lot like that ‘Treasure Planet’ movie, no?
Stashwick and Calero are known around the webosphere for their online comic ‘The Devil Inside,’ which they began working on during their time together on ‘Heroes.’ Remember that show? Basically an earlier version of ‘Alphas.’
What do you think? Are we ready for a “swash-buckling space adventure” or should this project stay where it is — as a script and nothing more? Let us know in the comments.
