The cable television network and production company previously collaborated on Steven Spielberg Presents: Taken, which won a 2003 Emmy for Best Miniseries. Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey of Amblin Television will serve as executive producers on Brave New World, while Les Bohem will write the screenplay and also executive produce.
No casting has been announced yet.
"Brave New World is one of the most influential genre classics of all time. Its provocative vision of a future gone awry remains as powerful and as timeless as ever. Promising to be a monumental television event, Brave New World is precisely the groundbreaking programming that is becoming the hallmark of Syfy," said Dave Howe, president of Syfy and Chiller.
"We've been looking for an opportunity to reunite with Les, Bonnie Hammer and Dave Howe, ever since our collaboration on Taken over a decade ago, and Brave New World is just the project we've been waiting for, to bring the band back together," Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television, added in their own joint statement. "We're thrilled to be working with Dawn Olmstead, with whom we produced The Whispers for ABC, and under the leadership of Jeff Wachtel and Universal Cable Productions, we know the project is in just the right hands."
