This is a fascinating — and super-topical — idea for a TV show. When the U.S. prison population gets too huge, we buy Greenland and turn it into a ginormous co-ed prison where people can supposedly win their freedom. That's the premise of 51st State, a show in development now for Syfy.
When we watched Kasra Farahani's short film Noon, about a tidally locked future Earth and a coyote who smuggles immigrants into the arctic city of perpetual daytime, we immediately wanted a feature-length version. Now, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a big-screen version of Noon is in the works.
