Syfy Developing Alien Abduction Drama ‘The Communion Letters’
by Anthony Ocasio
Syfy is looking to expand their preternatural programming with The Communion Letter, a drama revolving around those who have experienced an alien abduction.
Of course, it’s hard to discuss the plot of The Communion Letters without bringing up The X-Files. While The Communion Letters may not have Mulder and Scully to lead the way, perhaps television audiences are in the mood for the long-awaited return of episodic tales of mystery and phenomena.
Following NBC’s general failure with The Event, and ABC’s lackluster performance with V, the only alien-based drama currently on television is TNT’s breakout hit, Falling Skies. As Falling Skies focuses more on the adventurous aspect of an alien invasion, it appears that The Communion Letters is without competition in its specific genre.
