Syfy planning 'Lotus Caves' pilot

NEW YORK, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Syfy says it has commissioned a scripted pilot from Bryan Fuller, creator of popular U.S. series such as "Dead Like Me" and "Pushing Daisies."

The pilot and possible subsequent show is based on John Christopher's popular book "The Lotus Caves."


It is about colonists who rebel against the rigidity of their lunar colony by exploring beyond its proscribed boundaries and discovering a series of caves ruled by a super-intelligent, alien species, the network said in a synopsis.

Jim Grey, whose credits include "In Plain Sight" and "Pushing Daisies," is co-writing the pilot script with Fuller.
