Whitley Strieber’s Alien Hunter is being made into a series tentatively titled Hunters on Syfy. The network announced it’s moving forward on a 13 episode season one with Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Natalie Chaidez executive producing. Chaidez is also working on the scripts and Syfy’s aiming for a 2016 premiere.
“We were so impressed by the pilot script from this outstanding and accomplished creative team led by Gale Anne Hurd and Natalie Chaidez,” said Syfy President Dave Howe. “This fast-paced and innovative story takes viewers inside a chilling yet all too familiar world. Adding Hunters to new series such as The Expanse, 12 Monkeys, and the miniseries Childhood’s End, provides us with a formidable lineup of diverse, high-end science fiction.”
“As a longtime fan of Whitley’s, I am absolutely thrilled to collaborate with everyone at Syfy and UCP, as well as the uber-talented showrunner, Natalie Chaidez, to bring Hunters to life,” added Hurd.
In Hunters, the disappearance of a decorated Philadelphia cop’s wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists – shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.
