Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is to adapt the John Christopher novel The Lotus Caves for the SyFy channel in America. I read the children's book when I was a boy and loved it, though other Christopher books like The Guardians and his more famous Tripods trilogy are [arguably] superior.
I'm guessing it's a TV movie, as there ain't a whole mess o' plot in The Lotus Caves - certainly not enough for a series without major augmentation. Curiously, Walden Media had already announced plans to release a film adaptation, written by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal and directed by Rpin Suwannath. Guess Syfy has trumped that, or the rights have changed hands.
