The Ark on SYFY: Dean Devlin series unveils first look

Intergalactic travel is anything but lighthearted in our first look at Dean Devlin’s upcoming SYFY series. The Ark. Scheduled to air next year, the show is set 100 years in the future aboard the Ark One – a star cruiser carrying humanity’s last hope for survival. However, when the ship suffers heavy casualties, the remaining passengers must join forces and complete the mission of finding a new planetary home, the destination of which is more than a year away.

The sneak peek images tease a spooky, atmospheric, and almost spooky vibe that would probably feel right at home in a Ridley Scott production. In fact, you could even imagine it extraterrestrial meets Lord of the flies. When all coherent order in the vast expanses of space crumbles, who will be the one to take charge and put the literal ship back in order? You have corpses in the hallways, people screaming and general displays of fear and paranoia which, as we last checked, are not very positive omens.
