Tonight, Syfy airs an all-new episode of its new series, Dark Matter
. The series follows the crew of a derelict space craft, who awaken from stasis with no memories to their identities or what they are doing on the ship, the Raza. The series is based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name. Both the comic series and the television series were created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie.
Mallozzi recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about the new space opera.
The producer talked about how the concept of Dark Matter
started. "I actually started developing the show way back, I want to say, almost eight years ago, when I was working on Stargate Atlantis
, with the idea that once Stargate
ended, we would roll right into Dark Matter
, except [there was], I hesitate to say, the classic problem, but Stargate
kept getting picked up. Every year I'd have to shelve Dark Matter
. But the great thing is, you know, because I would have to put it off, I was able to just keep creating the backstories and the detail."
