PRODUCTION COMPANY: Synthesis Entertainment
The 1960’s scifi series will be making a comeback on Netflix. Written by Matt Sazama and Buck Sharpless (Dracula Untold; The Last Witch Hunter) and directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, Constantine, Hannibal, Descent), the series will probably take a darker tone than the family friendly 1960’s series, which ran for 83 episodes between 1965-1968 on CBS.
A reboot feature film was critically panned in 1998 because it was a serious take of the campy series, so Netflix has its work cut out to appease loyal fans.
