Former members of the Stargate production team are prepping a brand new science fiction series for Syfy Channel. Variety reports that Damian Kindler, Martin Wood, and Amanda Tapping are adding Sherwood to their production roster.
The new series will reimagine the popular story of Robin Hood … only set in the 23rd century. In Sherwood, “a young man of privilege teams up with a misfit spaceship crew to right the wrongs of his family,” according to the press release.
Kindler is writing the pilot for the show, to be produced by My Plastic Badgers Prods. with Kindler, Wood, and Tapping as executive producers.
Wood was a long-time director for Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, while Tapping has appeared as Samantha Carter on all three incarnations of the Stargate franchise over the past 13 years.
The three teamed up three years ago for Syfy’s Sanctuary, now producing its third (and first full, 20-episode) season.
Sherwood is a part of Syfy’s development slate of new programming to be announced soon, and there’s no indication just where it’s at in the pipeline. Not everything that Syfy puts into development makes it to camera or to air. But we’ll keep our ears to the ground and report on future developments!
