About Dark Matter
Dark Matter is a 13 episode hour-long space opera based on the graphic novel Dark Matter written by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, published by Dark Horse Comics. The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space.
Their memories wiped clean, they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The mysteries of their respective pasts will take them on a journey to the farthest reaches of colonized space. Hounded by the galactic authorities, their former employers, ruthless corporations, rivals, bounty hunters, and former enemies – they’ll have only each other to rely upon.
All the while, time is ticking down on them because, they'll soon learn, there is a traitor in their midst, a mole who orchestrated their communal mind wipe... Ultimately, this series is about redemption; Nature vs. Nurture. Are people born bad or are they a product of their environment? And, more importantly, once they've followed a certain path, is there any turning back? Our audience will tune in for the action and spectacular visual effects, but it's the love and loyalty they'll develop for these characters that will keep them coming back.
