http://www.syfy.com/theexpanse Very excited to see that this is becoming a tv series. I think a few of us here have read the books. This is syfy's most expensive series yet. From what I have read, they are trying to actually become a science fiction based channel again. Trailer below. http://expanse.wikia.com/wiki/The_Expanse_(TV) Tom Jane is perfectly cast in this, but I don't know about that hat. But admittedly the trailer doesn't do much for me. The authors are involved with the writing team so the series will most likely be representative of the books. It does seem like the first season will combine more than one book or blend the storyline of at least the first two books.
