Wolfe, Part 5: Riverworld.
In 2010, Syfy took their second shot at adapting Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld novels for the small screen. This time around, Robert Hewitt Wolfe was brought in to write multiple drafts of the troubled miniseries.
In this episode of Commentary: Trek Stars, Max and Mike examine the miniseries on the whole. We discuss the challenges of building an expansive mythology, the use of historical figures in a fantasy setting, and the unusual path the project took from script to screen.
