SyFy Adapting Pax Romana and Other SF&F Properties

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that the SyFy channel, notorious for their B-movies starring Tara Reid, has made an announcement that has redeemed them a bit in this blogger's eyes. They will be creating a mini-series based on Pax Romana by Jonathan Hickman, along with other adaptions of famous SF&F comics and books.

For those who don't know, Pax Romana is a politically charged graphic novel where the Vatican develops time travel in a future where Islam dominates Europe and the West has rejected monotheism. They decide to send an army of Cardinals and special forces soldiers to 312 AD, during the reign of Constantine, to change past and save the future. Things, however, don't go as planned as different factions vie for control over how to fix the timeline.

Pax Romana is being adapted by writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia (Warehouse 13), with David Alpert of Circle of Confusion (The Walking Dead) acting as executive producer, along with Federman, Scaia and Hickman. I have to say its a good sign when the creator is involved in the adaption (it works for Game of Thrones).

More importantly, we may get a chance to see some alternate history on the small screen. Casey Douglas at Geek Syndicate, however, summed exactly what we should all be thinking: will the end product live up to the original work? Only time will tell, but I will be praying for a successful production.
