(from Syfy's press release, August 2015) Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End, one of the most-acclaimed science fiction novels of all time, will come to life in the first-ever adaptation beginning December 14 on Syfy. This six-hour television event from Syfy and Universal Cable Productions will air over three consecutive nights on Monday, December 14, Tuesday, December 15 and Wednesday, December 16 from 8-10PM (ET/PT). Executive produced by award-winning producers Akiva Goldsman (Lone Survivor, A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) and Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips, Moneyball, The Social Network), the star-studded cast is led by Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Mike Vogel (Under the Dome), Daisy Betts (The Last Resort), Yael Stone (Orange is the New Black), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Osy Ikhile (The Fear) and Colm Meaney (Star Trek: The Next Generation). Childhood's End follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the alien Overlords, who promise to eliminate poverty, war and sickness - ushering in a golden age of peace, health and security for all of humankind. But why do the Overlords insist on hiding their appearance - and what do they ultimately want from Earth? While much of the world enjoys its newfound utopia, some suspect there's a price to pay. As the truth about the Overlords' intentions are revealed, humanity will discover its actual destiny may actually be a nightmare, instead of a dream.
