Game of Thrones writer and producer George R.R. Martin has landed a series on Netflix. While the series will air in the USA on Syfy, Netflix has first-run rights everywhere outside of the U.S.

In a statement, Syfy revealed that Jeff Buhler ("Jacob's Ladder"), who wrote the TV adaptation, would executive produce with Daniel Cerone ("The Blacklist"), who will also be showrunner.

Variety reports that Nightflyers, GRRM's 1985 short story, has been picked up by the cable channel Syfy, which, in the United Kingdom at least, is home to endless Buffy re-runs and other assorted trash.

Gretchen Mol is set to star as Dr. Agatha Matheson, alongside Eoin Macken as Karl D'Branin, David Ajala as Roy Eris, Sam Strike as Thale and Maya Eshet as Lommie.

The streaming service has acquired non-US rights to the upcoming Nightflyers, to which NBCUniversal-owned Syfy has given the greenlight. Martin's novella, which had previously been adapted into a feature film in 1987 to a generally negative reaction, will be produced by Syfy's production arm Universal Cable Productions. However, as the ship closes in on its destination, it becomes apparent that the Nightflyer's onboard AI and its elusive captain - with mysterious motivations - may be leading the crew on a primrose path ending in the hopeless, horrific darkness of deep space. When terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question each other. Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films will also executive produce with Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions. The pilot will be directed by Mike Cahill (I Origin). It's set in Martin's "Thousand Worlds" universe, which despite containing a thousand worlds, could not find room for Westeros. The network did not announce a premiere date for Nightflyers.
