The Ark In The Media

Recommended Posts


Dean Devlin and the SYFY Network have plans to bring you a 12-episode high-concept sci-fi series, The Ark. Production is scheduled to begin in March at PFI Studios in Belgrade, Serbia.

The Ark is set 100 years in the future at a time when planetary colonization missions have become a necessity to secure the survival of the human race. The series follows the crew of the Ark One after they encounter a disaster that destroys part of their ship, derailing the mission they are on to save mankind. With more than a year left to go before reaching their destination. They have to grapple with a lack of life-sustaining supplies and a leadership vacuum, forcing the remaining crew to become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and stay alive.

In one of the first official deals out of this year’s MIPTV television market, NBCUniversal International Networks and Direct-to-Consumer (NBCUIN & DTC) signed a trio of multi-territories deals with Electric Entertainment for Syfy series The Ark and the second seasons of Almost Paradise and Leverage: Redemption.

The deals, announced Monday, as MIPTV kicked off in Cannes, will see NBCUIN & DTC take The Ark for its Syfy networks in France, Spain and Portugal, as well as for sci-fi in the Balkans and in Poland.

Ordered straight to series for 12 episodes by Syfy in the U.S., The Ark is set 100 years in the future when planetary colonization missions have begun as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race. The first of these missions, on a spacecraft known as Ark One, encounters a catastrophic event causing massive destruction and loss of life. With more than a year left to go before reaching their target planet, a lack of life-sustaining supplies and loss of leadership, the remaining crew must become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive.

Christie Burke, Reece Ritchie, Stacey Read, and Steven William Moore co-star. The series is currently filming in Belgrade, Serbia.

There’s No Room for Gen X and Boomers in SyFy’s The Ark

The cast list for Syfy’s upcoming show The Ark has been released, and there’s no one under forty.
*  *  *
Given it appears all the cast seems to be around or under thirty-five (at least in terms of their actor’s ages), I have a feeling The Ark’s senior staff are going to die in the first episode … or the ship departs Earth without anyone “too old,” A.K.A. Gen X and Boomers!

Is this simply for practical purposes because younger people are more likely to reproduce in the new colonies, or is it the result of something more sinister? Perhaps what caused the need to leave Earth was a war between the generations? Did Gen X get tired of being ignored and teamed up with their older compatriots who were sick of “OK, Boomer?” jokes? But would an alliance between Gen Z and Millenials really survive? 

There is no release date yet, but filming has begun in Siberia.
