Aug 01, 2015 Posted by in Interviews | 1 comment

Syfy had a huge presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. One of the the shows it brought was its upcoming series The Expanse, which will premiere this December.

A thriller set hundreds of years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

The series is based on the popular New York Times bestselling book series collectively known as “The Expanse,” written by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey). Abraham and Franck will be show producers.


In the San Diego Comic-Con press room, we got to speak with writers/executive producers Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby and Naren Shankar as well as cast members Steven Strait (Magic City), Dominique Tipper (Vampire Academy) and Wes Chatham (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay).

Stars Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Shohreh Aghdashloo (The House of Sand and Fog) and Cas Anvar (Olympus) were also in the press room, but unfortunately never made it to our table.
