currently in development (2015-2016 season)
(from Spike TV's press release, September 2014) Spike TV and Vince Gerardis, Co-Executive Producer of HBO's "Game of Thrones," have partnered to develop an original scripted series to be based on Kim Stanley Robinson's expansive MARS TRILOGY, his series of novels about the colonization and transformation of Mars. A recipient of the prestigious Nebula and Hugo awards, Robinson's novels are widely regarded as the best books written on the subject, and a holy grail for science fiction fans. The Spike series, "Red Mars," will focus on the core question at the heart of the novels - what is it to be human when we are no longer of earth? Are we not then Martians? NASA has made going to Mars the organizing principal of all their programs. Several private corporations too are establishing footholds in the race to the red planet, as evident in daily news stories.
