I’ve read the first two Expanse novels and they’re very good. The third is on my list to read, it’s just a long list.
Now of course just because something is optioned, doesn’t mean it will make it onto tv. At the moment they’re basically working on scripts. But still it sounds good.
“The Expanse” will be an hourlong scifi drama with elements of a detective procedural, centring on a cover-up of the discovery of alien life. Alcon said it is developing the project in direct-to-series fashion internally before shopping to networks.
