SPT, Eleventh Hour prep Fishburne drama

Sony Pictures Television (SPT) and UK-based Eleventh Hour Films (EHF) have linked up with actor Laurence Fishburne (Black-ish) on an anthology drama series about UFOs.

Laurence Fishburne

Rendlesham is an eight-part paranormal series inspired by a UFO incident that took place at a US air base close to the village of Rendlesham in the UK county of Suffolk.

A series of sightings of unexplained lights near the base in December 1980 were linked to claims of UFO landings.

The show will star Fishburne as a retired American airman who returns to the area to visit his dying father-in-law and is forced to face events that have haunted him his whole life.

Fishburne will also executive produce alongside his Cinema Gypsy Productions shingle and producing partner Helen Sugland. Eve Gutierrez and Jill Green will serve as executive producers for EHF alongside Joe Ahearne, who is also writing and is set to direct the series. SPT will handle distribution internationally.

SPT took a minority stake in EHF in September and the duo are already producing young-adult drama series Alex Rider together, as well as developing drama The Caine Mutiny.
