SyFy Developing 51st State About Futuristic Prison Society

Recommended Posts



Syfy announced today that it is developing a one-hour drama series about a futuristic prison society, entitled 51st State.


In the series, the United States is confronting a prison population stretched to the limit. The U.S. purchases Greenland and converts it into a frontier prison colony with male and female convicts incarcerated together.


Promised conditional freedom, the inmates are driven to the edge of their humanity when that promise, along with others, is broken. Struggling to seize control and exact revenge, reluctant heroes emerge -- but what exactly are they fighting for?


Oscar nominee Craig Borten will write the pilot. He will also serve as executive producer alongside Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope.
