From slashfilm, "Danger Will Robinson!” Netflix has announced today that they have ordered a 10-episode first season of a new Lost In Space tv series. The one-hour sci-fi drama is of course based on the 1960’s sci-fi classic from Irwin Allen. New Line Cinema made a movie based on the property in 1998 directed by Stephen Hopkins which I remember being pretty horrible. Find out who’s involved in this new take on the science fiction classic, after the jump.
The new Lost in Space tv series is a reimagined take on the property by Dracula Untold/Last Witch Hunter writing teamMatt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, alongside Prison Break showrunner Zack Estrie.
Taking its cues from the original series, the show centers around the Robinson family, who is forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, it is a survival story for the ages.
