  AMAZON TO MAKE SF SERIES 
FROM 'RINGWORLD' SF CLASSIC
Ringworld was almost turned into series at SyFy
We continue our sf week with some great new science fiction news coming from Amazon which will develop Ringworld and Lazarus into TV series! RINGWORLD, based on Larry Niven's sf classic novel, was already planned for production a few years ago at SyFy, but it seems now it has the green light. It follows Louis Gridley Wu, a bored man celebrating his 200th birthday in a technologically advanced, future Earth.

Each family has allies and enemies among the other families. To crush uprisings and fight wars, most families have a Lazarus: a one-person kill squad. Kinda similar to Into the Badlands.

    3. I think our cable is about 10 dollar a month, but according to law we also all have to pay a monthly fee for our national broadcaster and I don't even own a TV lol and plus their programme is utter rubbish, not like BBC at all
