An unmade Gerry Anderson TV series will see light of day as new novel

An unproduced television series from legendary producer Gerry Anderson is finally set to materialise – as a novel!

From the late 1950s through to the mid-2000s, Anderson created or co-created a string of iconic family adventure series including ThunderbirdsStingray, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and Space:1999.

One planned project, Intergalactic Rescue 4, was pitched to US broadcaster NBC in the 1970s but never made – now, the original story treatments have been adapted into a novel by author Richard James.

The book will be unveiled at this weekend’s London Film and Comic Con, with Anderson Entertainment creating a limited run of 300 hardback copies, with any remaining copies set to be available to fans via the Gerry Anderson Store beginning 25th November.

“On board Intergalactic Rescue 4, they travel to ice moons and jungle planets in 10 exciting adventures that see them journey further across the stars than anyone before. But what are the secret transmissions that Anne discovers? And why do their rescues seem to be taking them on a predetermined course? Soon, Anne discovers that her co-pilot, Jason, might be on a quest of his own.”

Intergalactic Rescue 4 will also be available as an audiobook – read by New Captain Scarlet actor Wayne Forester – in early 2023 on CD and download, with the first story also available for fans to hear for free on the Anderson Entertainment YouTube channel.
