The CW and Kennedy/Marshall to bring a Colony to Mars

Oct. 10, 2013by: Kevin Woods

The 400-year-old Roanoke Colony mystery is getting a galactic twist with “Colony,” a drama project at The CW from CBS TV Studios and the studio-based Kennedy/Marshall Company, according to Deadline.

Written by Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time), “‘Colony’ is...

...a thriller about a group of explorers sent to colonize Mars, willing to leave their lives behind to brave the dangers of another planet, and the terrifying reality they discover. It is inspired by the story of ‘The Lost Colony,’ the 16th century British settlement on Roanoke Island, off the coast of North Carolina, whose inhabitants vanished without a trace, sparking a slew of theories about their fate.”

Goldberg will executive produce with Kennedy/Marshall’s Robert Zotnowski and Frank Marshall. The project stems from Kennedy/Marshall’s deal at CBS TV Studios.

If you're at all familiar with the story of The Lost Colony of Roanoke then you're probably thinking you have a pretty good idea of how this show will end. But perhaps that will be just the beginning. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Ugh the CW

Sounds like a cool idea but since it's on the CW, we can assume it'll be all pretty people, no fatties or ugly people, and most, if not all, will not be able to act. hope I'm wrong
