People who know George R R Martin as only the guy who made Game of Thrones are in for a surprise. He is also the author of Nightflyers, a novella that comes to the streaming audiences as a Netflix series. The book is about eight acclaimed scientists and a telepath who are onboard a spaceship, looking to get in contact with alien life. The Nightflyers cast comprises of the likes of Sam Strike, Eoin Macken, alongside David Ajala, Jodie Turner-Smith, Angus Sampson, Maya Eshet and others.
The series looks well made. With Netflix at the helm of affairs – it first came aboard as producer – audiences can be rest assured about the production qualities. With Nightflyers, Netflix looks to be treading firmly on the path that takes them away from dealing with very well-known content like the ones they have been working with, read Disney, which was previously Marvel owned content.
