Yes, another SciFi programming story from the meet and greet Tuesday night. The network has picked up Virgin Comics’ The Stranded for a possible series.
Creator Mike Carey will be developing the story for the Sci Fi Channel.
With The Stranded, Mike challenges ordinary people to face the extraordinary â€“ their lives are lies. Every memory is false. Startling events cause them to confront the truth, that they are, in fact, â€œstrandedâ€ on Earth after a horrific genocide in another galaxy.
â€œFrom day one,â€ Carey says in a prepared statement, â€œworking on The Stranded has felt like being at a nexus point of creativity. Virgin and SCI FI created the perfect platform, and then supported the book and the creative team through all the stages of development. This feels like something we all own, and we all love. I can’t wait to take it forward into its next incarnation.â€
