Video: We've been hearing about Syfy's ambitious take on George R.R. Martin's classic spooky tale for a while now - but we finally have an early glimpse, and it's looking pretty damn horrifying.

The show was ordered to straight-to-series by SYFY, the network has been bolserting its original lineup with popular shows like the soon to soon-to-launch "Krypton", and other series like "The Magicians", "Channel Zero", and "The Expanse".

Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin is known for his cold and unforgiving hand on the narrative electric chair's switch, constantly throwing it just when fans think their favorite characters are safe. The featurette takes us behind the scenes of the show and sees the author and members of the cast and crew discuss the chilling new series; take a look below... "It's Psycho in space". The crew is on an expedition hoping to discover whether they can make contact with alien life, but the plan goes awry when terrifying and violent events start to occur. Andrew McCarthy will be a producer-director on the project. Netflix is co-producing and has the first-run rights to the series outside of the U.S. Mike Cahill will direct the pilot.

The series will star Gretchen Mol as Dr. Agatha Matheson, Eoin Macken as Karl D'Branin, Maya Eshet as Lommie, Sam Strike as Thale and Jodie Turner-Smith as Melantha Jhirl with Jeff Buhler as showrunner.

The series, produced in Ireland, is moving forward with the support of the Government of Ireland, through the Minister for Culture, Heritage and Gaeltacht and the Irish Film Board.
