GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE JULIAN MCMAHON (NIP/TUCK) AND DAISY BETTS (SHUTTER) WILL JOIN CAST OF SYFY/UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS' UPCOMING TELEVISION EVENT CHILDHOOD'S END

SIX-HOUR MINISERIES WILL PREMIERE ON SYFY IN 2015

NEW YORK - December 17, 2014 - Syfy and Universal Cable Productions today announced that Golden Globe nominee Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer) will portray Rupert Boyce, an enigmatic American entrepreneur, in the upcoming six-hour miniseries Childhood's End.

Adapted for the screen for the first time ever from Arthur C. Clarke's beloved and influential novel, Childhood's End will premiere on Syfy in 2015.

Syfy and Universal Cable Productions also announced that Daisy Betts (Shutter) has been cast as Ellie, an arts graduate engaged to marry Ricky Stormgren (Mike Vogel), the most influential human in the world.

McMahon and Betts join Emmy Award nominee Charles Dance/Karellen (Game of Thrones) and Mike Vogel/Rick Stormgren (Bates Motel), along with Ashley Zukerman/Jake Greggson (Manhattan), Osy Ikhile/Milo (Clap!) and Yael Stone/Peretta Jones (Orange is the New Black).

Hailed as a revolutionary work of science fiction since its publishing in 1953, Childhood's End follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival begins decades of apparent utopia under indirect alien rule, at the cost of human identity and culture which may ultimately threaten the very survival of mankind.

Childhood's End will be filmed in Australia.

Sounds interesting. I remember reading it when it was first published it seemed "over my head" at the time or at least it wasn't the type of S-F that I preferred at the time. scratch
