Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) has signed on to Syfy’s miniseries Childhood’s End set to air in 2015. The six hour miniseries is based on Arthur C. Clarke’s critically acclaimed novel and is directed by Nick Hurran (Sherlock, Dr. Who).
McMahon joins a cast that includes Daisy Betts, Charles Dance, Mike Vogel, Ashley Zukerman, Osy Ikhile, and Yael Stone. The miniseries is set to shoot in Australia.
Matthew Graham (BBC’s Life on Mars creator) adapted Clarke’s 1953 novel for the small screen. Akiva Goldsman, Mike De Luca, and Alissa Phillips are on board as executive producers.
Childhood’s End follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival begins decades of apparent utopia under indirect alien rule, at the cost of human identity and culture which may ultimately threaten the very survival of mankind.
Julian McMahon will play Rupert Boyce, an enigmatic American entrepreneur.
