Hannibal executive producer Bryan Fuller's space action pilot High Moon didn't make it to series, but Syfy has repackaged it as an original TV movie, set to air Monday, Sept. 15 at 9/8c.
Set a century from now, High Moon centers on the ragtag mix of spies, miners, soldiers and entrepreneurs who live on the moon, where a race is underway to mine its resources. An alien plant promises to change the world — or bring about its doom.
Chris Diamantopoulos plays a high-level investigator for the U.S. government, while Jake Sandvig plays the person who discovers that mysterious plant. Peter Macon, Dana Davis, Charity Wakefield, Jonathan Tucker and Constance Wu also star.
High Moon is based on the John Christopher novel The Lotus Caves. Jim Danger Gray, who came up with the story for High Moon with Fuller, wrote the teleplay. Gray's credits include Season 1 of Hannibal as well as Fuller's Pushing Daisies. He's now a writer on Orange is the New Black.
Here's a first look at High Moon.
