Heinlein’s classic sci-fi story may indeed be a “Stranger In A Strange Land”

heinleinTrue to its name, the Syfy channel has made a habit of adapting science fiction and fantasy literature both established (Childhood’s End, Hyperion) and contemporary (The Expanse, The Magicians). Now it seems there’s another much-beloved property on the network’s list: Robert Heinlein’s 1961 Stranger in a Strange Land.

According to a press release, this is the first TV adaptation of Stranger in a Strange Land—very broadly, the tale of a Mars-born man who travels to Earth and experiences human culture for the first time; it influenced the counterculture and won a Hugo en route to becoming a classic. No further details on the proposed TV series were announced, but we’ll be keeping an eye on this one.

Is this a book that can be adapted for the screen? If so, what format should it take? Should this be a big theatrical release? What about a made-for-TV movie? Would it be better served as a mini-series? Should this book just be left alone?
