Nightflyers follows a group of scientists, a telepath, and a weird captain as they search for alien life on the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer. As stories tend to go, things occur and problems arise.

 

Dan Cerone (The Blacklist, The Mentalist) will act as showrunner. The terms of the partnership are currently being ironed out, but it seems like Netflix will have international distribution rights. Stay tuned for more news on all things George R. R. Martin!
