Roddenberry Entertainment and Benderspink have teamed up to co-develop Days Missing – a critically-acclaimed graphic novel series – for television and film.
Days Missing is the first Rodenberry franchise to be adapted for the big screen since J.J. Abrams rebooted Star Trek, and the first TV show based on a Roddenberry property since Andromeda.
“Days Missing is another wonderful example of the kind of science fiction Roddenberry stands for – an exploration of the human condition wrapped up in an extraordinary adventure that not only entertains but challenges audiences to think, question and explore,” explained Rod Roddenberry.
“The depth of its characters and the relevance of its dilemmas provide opportunity for viewers to emotionally involve themselves in the story.”
For the uninitiated, Days Missing can best be described as a series that depicts extraordinary 24-hour periods of time responsible for changing the course of humanity’s evolution. Unfortunately, most of it has been erased from human memory by a mystical and ancient entity known as The Steward. The “days missing” snippets, recorded in the annals of The Steward’s library, represent a lost human history that explains much more about who we are than we ever knew.
The third installment of the graphic novel series, dubbed Days Missing: Enox, is currently in production and slated for release in 2012. Enox will detail the anticipated conflict between The Steward and his nemesis, as the protagonist is forced to decide between himself and humanity.
