The miniseries, produced by Warner Horizon Television and Scott Free Productions, resolves the story of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Beginning with the discovery of Frank Poole’s frozen body, floating in space, 3001: The Final Odyssey offers a range of characters with conflicting agendas, stunning visuals, and dark thematic meditations on the final fate of all Humankind.

Stuart Beattie will write the adaptation and executive produce with Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott and David W Zucker.

Clayton Krueger is the co-executive producer.

Syfy previously ordered another adaptation of an Arthur C Clarke novel, Childhood’s End, which begins production later this year.
