Continuing its strategy to create bold and distinctive sci-fi fantasy drama, Syfy today announced that it has greenlit a pilot of The Magicians, an adaptation of Lev Grossman's best-selling fantasy book series which has been published in 22 countries.

From Universal Cable Productions, the pilot script was written by John McNamara (Prime Suspect) and Sera Gamble (Supernatural). Michael London (Milk) and Janice Williams (All Good Girls) are set to produce.

The one-hour drama follows 20-somethings who, while studying magic in New York, discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real and poses a grave danger to humanity.

In making the announcement, Dave Howe, President, Syfy, said: "Lev Grossman's dazzling blend of magic and realism will capture the imagination of a new generation of viewers and further strengthen Syfy's ownership of premium quality sci-fi fantasy drama."
