It’s always a good day when the Syfy channel announces its making science fiction entertainment. It’s n even better day when that entertainment is a TV adaptation of Frederick Pohl’s Hugo and Nebula award-winning scifi novel Gateway, which will be co-developed by Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick.
Set in a dystopian wreck of a future, Gateway follows one man on a get-rich-or-die-trying mission to an unknown location, with unknown results, on an alien ship with a crap return rate. It's a menacing tale, and now it's going to be a TV series. A dark, dark TV series.
