ABC has picked up Impact, a four-hour sci-fi mini-series about humanity's efforts to survive after the moon is hit by a meteor and enters into a collision course with Earth, according to Variety.

NBC Universal's Sci Fi Channel took second-window rights to the mini, while Sony Pictures Home Entertainment acquired video rights.

The $14 million mini is produced by Germany's Tandem Communications, Hollywood-based Jaffe/Braunstein Entertainment and Canada's Muse Entertainment Enterprises.

Directed by Michael J. Rohl (Smallville, Supernatural), Impact stars David James Elliott, Natasha Henstridge, Steven Culp and James Cromwell.
