Two summers ago, another network aired one season of a comedy about a guy who discovered a meteor was headed straight for Earth and would destroy it in six months – You, Me and the Apocalypse.
Last fall, another network aired a dramedy about a guy who discovers the Earth has six months until a meteor destroys it and decides to do all the things he always dreamed of doing, a journey that only grows more important when he falls in love – No Tomorrow.

In Neverland [Syfy, Sunday, December 4th/Monday, December 5th, 9/8C], Willing takes a remarkable cast [Rhys Ifans, Charlie Rowe, Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins…] and tells the tale of how Peter and the Lost Boys came to be in Neverland; how a Fagin-like Jimmy became the pirate Captain Hook, and how Neverland became inhabited by pirates, Indians and fairies.
Recently, Willing, Ifans, Rowe and Friel talked with journalists/bloggers about the Peter Pan prequel. Here’s what they had to say.
