PILOT PRODUCED BY REUNION PICTURES TO BEGIN PRODUCTION THIS FALL WITH THE HALMI COMPANY DISTRIBUTING

NEW YORK - August 3, 2012 - Syfy is greenlighting Reunion Pictures' new series pilot High Moon, an adaptation of John Christopher's best-selling novel The Lotus Caves, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President, Original Content, Syfy, and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions.

High Moon creates a future where the countries of Earth have established colonies to mine the Moon's resources. When a new life form is discovered, chaos erupts as various factions race to uncover and exploit its powerful secrets.
