With Game of Thrones two seasons away from oblivion, George R.R. Martin is already working on bringing another of his creations to the small screen. Universal Cable Productions has bought the rights to Wild Cards, which tells the story of a series of science fiction superheroes all sharing the same universe, after an alien virus is released in the skies over Manhattan. Likely to be shown on Syfy there is a good chance they'll be a high number of series given the amount of novels and authors involved in creating the Wild Cards world.
