First look at Sci-Fi Horror Nightflyers by George R.R. Martin

The Nightflyers setting is about as far from Westeros as you can get. The original book is about a spaceship crew in search of aliens, who wind up in the middle of a deep-space bloodbath when the ship's AI computer turns on them. There are no GoT sprawling vistas or looming castles in the minute-long teaser—it's all tight, claustrophobic shots of unhappy astronauts and malfunctioning high-tech junk. 

But space setting or no, the show still seems to deliver on the one thing we've come to expect from anything George R.R. Martin-related: a ton of brutal murders.

Martin himself pops in during the clip to explain that the show is "a haunted house story on a starship" and "Psycho in space," but the thing seems more like Alien filtered through SyFy's other recent foray into prestige TV, The Expanse.
