Netflix Announces Launch Date for Irish Production 'Nightflyers' Staring Brian F.O'Bryne & Eoin Macken
15 Jan 2019 : Nathan Griffin
The streaming giant has announced that the highly anticipated Irish production will launch in Ireland on February 1st.

Filmed in Troy Studios, Limerick, ‘Nightflyers’ is produced by NBC Universal & Universal Cable Productions, alongside Wild Atlantic Pictures with Irish producers Macdara Kelleher and Eoin Egan involved.

Based on George R. R. Martin's novella, Nightflyers is set in the future on the eve of Earth's destruction.  A crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival. As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship's artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space.

Gretchen Mol (“Boardwalk Empire”) stars as Dr. Agatha Matheson alongside Irish actor Eoin Macken (“The Night Shift”) as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala (“Fast & Furious 6”) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (“EastEnders”) as Thale, Maya Eshet (“Teen Wolf”) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (“Fargo”) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (“The Last Ship”) as Melantha Jhirl and Irish actor Brían F. O'Byrne (“Million Dollar Baby”) as Auggie.

Nightflyers is executive produced by George R. R. Martin, Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill and Andrew McCarthy serve as executive producers. Gene Klein (Suits), David Bartis (Suits) and Doug Liman (Live. Die. Repeat) of Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig (Jacob’s Ladder, Windtalkers) and Michael Gaeta (Jacob’s Ladder) of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions also serve as executive producers. 

The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and co-produced by Netflix. Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation for television and is the showrunner and executive producer.

Nightflyers will air exclusively on Netflix worldwide, excluding the United States on February 1st.
