DESCRIPTION: (from Sci Fi's press release) SCI FI and Virgin Comics joined forces last year to create new comic book titles under the SCI FI/Virgin Comics banner. The titles integrate the unique spirit and vitality of both brands and create intellectual properties that can be developed across all mediums from publishing, film and television to digital and gaming. Released in January 2008, the debut title The Stranded has been a huge hit, selling out in just a few weeks. SCI FI is now developing the property, written by comic book vet Mike Carey, into a 2-hour pilot. In The Stranded, five seemingly everyday people must face the terrifying question: what if your entire life your childhood, your family, your memories was a lie? For the stranded, Sisera, Endo, Drum, Tamree, and Cullen, it's true. Each of them is from another world called Standfire, and now their past is returning to try and kill them.
