Sexy scifi coming to TV with adaptation of Stranger in a Strange Land

Following the news that Robert A Heinlein's Starship Troopers is going to be rebooted, comes the news that his most famous book, Stranger in a Strange Land, will be made into a series for cable channel Syfy.

While Starship Troopers dealt with issues of military defence and citizenship, Stranger in a Strange Land looks at religion, free love and empathy. It tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, a human who comes to Earth in early adulthood after being born on the planet Mars and raised by Martians.

In 2012, the US Library of Congress named it one of 88 Books that Shaped America.
