Bringing any book to TV is a challenge, but when the title in question is a classic like Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End. the degree of difficulty shoots into the stratosphere. Not only is the novel a revered part of the sci-fi canon, but it's also out of a very different era in both literature and culture. So how's it all going to work when Childhood's End comes to Syfy as a mini-series?

We sat down with writer Matthew Graham, director Nick Hurran and star Julian McMahon to talk about what kind of changes we can expect to see and more when they stopped by our studio at San Diego Comic-Con. Check out the full video below!
