Drama 'The Ark' Created by Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner Receives Series Order at Syfy

Syfy has today given a series order to the original drama series The Ark created by Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner. Production on the 12-episode first season will commence in March at PFI Studios in Belgrade, Serbia.

The drama will take place 100 years in the future when planetary colonization missions have begun as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race. The first of these missions on a spacecraft known as Ark One encounters a catastrophic event causing massive destruction and loss of life. With more than a year left to go before reaching their target planet, a lack of life-sustaining supplies and loss of leadership, the remaining crew must become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive.

Devlin and Glassner will executive produce with Marc Roskin, Rachel Olschan-Wilson and Jonathan English. Electric Entertainment and Balkanic Media will produce.

"I'm so excited to have the opportunity to partner with Syfy again and can't think of a better collaborator than Jonathan Glassner to bring this series to life," said Devlin.

"The Ark is a perfect fit for Syfy audiences and we know fans will gravitate to this heart-racing story from Dean Devlin, one of the most accomplished and respected sci-fi writers working today," added Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Content, NBCU Entertainment and Streaming. "With the recent success of both Resident Alien and Chucky, the network is home to several of the most creative storytellers working in all of television."
