Netflix Deal Imminent on Troy Studios’ Series ‘Nightflyers’
15 Sep 2017 : Nathan Griffin
Troy Studios
Following news in early August that George R.R. Martin’s ‘Nightflyers' was set to begin the shooting of a pilot in Troy Studios, Limerick, latest reports out of Hollywood suggest that the Series, which had been commissioned by SYFY is close to a distribution deal with Netflix.

The project is currently in negotiations with Netflix to go straight to Series, with Netflix getting International Distribution and second window domestically as well as Co-Production on the series. This would also see the 350,000 square foot Troy Studios open its doors to an international production for the first time.

The Series which is based on the 1987 Novella was only due for a 16 week lease in Troy Studios but now looks set to remain busy for the remainder of the year with momentum building fast following the announcement of Dan Cerone as showrunner and a host of other well known names being attached.

‘Nightflyers’ will be executive produced by David Bartis, Doug Liman and Gene Klein of Hypnotic; Cerone; Buhler; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions, as well as writer and producer of the 1987 ‘Nightflyers’ feature adaptation, Robert Jaffe.

‘Nightflyers,’ follows a group of misfit scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer — a ship with a small, tightknit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question one another, and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.

Troy Studios Limited was established by Ardmore Studios’ Chief Executive Siún Ní Raghallaigh, Ardmore co-owner Ossie Kilkenny and producer John Kelleher.
