“Fight Club” screenwriter Jim Uhls will adapt Robert Charles Wilson’s 2005 novel “Spin” for Syfy’s miniseries of the same name, the cabler announced Thursday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour.

The six-hour miniseries will follow the novel’s tale of a young scientist on a mission to save the world from an impending apocalypse due to a mysterious cloud that has covered planet Earth, blacking out all the stars.

Universal Cable Prods. will produce the project with Rob Morrow’s Bits and Pieces Picture Company and Leslie Urdang of Olympus Pictures.

Wilson’s “Spin” is the first book in a trilogy, which also includes “Axis” and “Vortex.”
