SYFY DEVELOPING LIMITED SERIES "THE LEAGUE OF PAN" FROM UCP

- Brian McCauley Johnson Writing Genre-Bending Take On the Classic Fairytale -

PASADENA, CA - January 11, 2020 - SYFY today announced it is developing THE LEAGUE OF PAN, a limited series extending the adventures of the iconic fairytale about a group of misfit children who refused to grow up. The series from UCP (Universal Content Productions) is written and produced by Brian McCauley Johnson.

A thrilling and mysterious continuation of the beloved story of Peter Pan, THE LEAGUE OF PAN picks up with the fabled characters after ten years on the mainland. Now grown up and estranged, Wendy Darling and The Lost Boys must return to Neverland to face a new evil that threatens the very existence of the magical place they once called home, reigniting bitter rivalries and unearthing twisted secrets from their past. The fantastical series explores the painful truths of growing up and the realization that "going home" is never quite as simple as you think.

"The stories of Peter Pan, The Lost Boys and the Darlings have provided us with epic tales of gallantries and escapism for generations," said Bill McGoldrick, President, Original Content, NBCUniversal Entertainment Networks and Direct-to-Consumer. "Now, SYFY is developing an original take on the classic, setting the limited series in uncharted lands, making for new adventures and showcasing these characters like you've never see them before."

The development of THE LEAGUE OF PAN comes on the heels of SYFY's straight-to-series pickup of CHUCKY, which brings the iconic character to television for the first time, and is written, produced and directed by the franchise's original creator Don Mancini. On the 2020 slate for SYFY: scripted series RESIDENT ALIEN, VAGRANT QUEEN, THE MAGICIANS, WYNONNA EARP and VAN HELSING; the Saturday late night animation block TZGZ; and new fan-focused franchises produced in conjunction with SYFY WIRE.
