From Syfy and Universal Cable Productions, Childhood’s End is executive produced by Akiva Goldsman (Lone Survivor, A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) and Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips, Moneyball, The Social Network) and features a cast led by Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”), Mike Vogel (“Under the Dome”), Daisy Betts “(The Last Resort”), Yael Stone (“Orange is the New Black”), Julian McMahon (“Nip/Tuck”), Osy Ikhile (“The Fear”) and Colm Meaney (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”).
Childhood’s End follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the alien Overlords, who promise to eliminate poverty, war and sickness – ushering in a golden age of peace, health and security for all of humankind. But why do the Overlords insist on hiding their appearance – and what do they ultimately want from Earth? While much of the world enjoys its newfound utopia, some suspect there’s a price to pay. As the truth about the Overlords’ intentions are revealed, humanity will discover its actual destiny may actually be a nightmare, instead of a dream.
Childhood’s End is adapted by Matthew Graham (creator of BBC’s “Life on Mars” and “Ashes to Ashes”), who serve as writer/executive producer. Alissa Phillips (Moneyball, “Mob City”) serves as co-executive producer.
