Syfy will make room in its schedule for Three Inches.
The cable channel has ordered a 90-minute pilot, which revolves around an underachieving superhero who can move objects with his mind — but only for the titular distance. He then recruits a team of fellow heroes, each with their own subpar abilities.

Felicia Day to headline Syfy's Red

Mark Stern, Syfy's executive vice president of development, announced the order Tuesday, calling the show "a fun, smart, off-beat spin on the superhero genre."Three Inches comes from Twin Peaks writer Harley Peyton, who also wrote the screenplay for the 1987 filmLess Than Zero based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel.

The Hollywood Reporter said Syfy — which had its upfront scheduled for Tuesday — also is looking to expand its Battlestar Galactica franchise beyond its current prequel series Caprica. "That world is so rich. We're sitting down with [executive producer] Ron Moore and his team," Stern said. "It would not necessarily be a traditional series."
