Fox Acquires Sci-Fi Project from LIFE ON MARS Creator Matthew Graham

     August 24, 2012


20th Century Fox has picked up a sci-fi project called Para Time to develop into a feature film.  Heat Vision reports that the project comes from Matthew Graham, co-creator of the popular BBC series Life on Mars.  Plot details are currently under wraps, but the story apparently revolves around “a group that polices parallel worlds.”  Steve Tzirlin, who is developing a big-screen adaptation of the Wes Ball short film Ruin, is onboard to produce Para Time.  Graham most recently created the British series Eternal Law and wrote a couple episodes for the previous season of Doctor Who.  I’m not familiar with the BBC version of Life on Mars, but ABC tried a remake of the series in 2008 that only lasted one season.  Graham’s original show struck a chord with both audiences and critics and ran for two series.
