Syfy will be launching its countdown to Christmas week, starting with the all new original four-hour miniseries, Neverland
. The show is a origin story about how the characters we all know and love from J.M. Barrie's classic become those characters.
Written and directed by Nick Willing, who directed the miniseries Tin Man
, as well as Alice
, which he also wrote, Neverland
will air over two consecutive nights, begining on December 4th.
The miniseries stars Charlie Rowe of Pirate Radio
as Peter Pan, Rhys Ifans, who many fans will know from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
, as James Hook, and Anna Friel of Pushing Daisies
as Captain Elizabeth Bonnie.
The three stars recently joined the press at the Syfy Digital Press Tour in Orlando, Florida to talk about the epic adventure.
