Sci Fi Channel has ordered three four hour movies from RHI Entertainment, including a pilot for a potential Phantom TV series on the network, according to Hollywood Reporter.  The green light for a future series would depend on the ratings achieved by the movie. 

Like The Phantom, the success of the Riverworld movie, based on the Philip Jose Farmer novels, will determine whether a series is made. 


The network’s retelling of Alice in Wonderland will be written and directed by Nick Willing, who did the same for Wizard of Oz with Tin Man.
