Syfy Announces 3 New Scripted Projects
Syfy, now savvy to the demand for original scripted material, has announced three new projects from Universal Cable Productions, Fox Television Studios and CBS TV Studios. The move comes following the success of the Syfy’s quartet of popular scripted series – Warehouse 13, Alphas, Eureka and Haven – which were the driving force behind the channel’s most watched Third Quarter ever, drawing 1.45 million total viewers.
“This broad-based slate, from top-notch talent in the creative community, will enable us to build upon the strong foundation of our current hit scripted series to provide Syfy viewers with the next generation of imaginative entertainment,” said Mark Stern, President, Original Content recently.
The Development slate looks a little as follows:
Untitled (Robert H. Wolfe) (Universal Cable Productions)
After decades of war, the newly formed Unity Democracy orders a volatile mix of humans and trans-humans to lead the Starship Defender on an expedition in search of lost worlds requiring law and order.
Seeing Things (working title) (Fox Television Studios)
A cop becomes a ghost after his violent death and the only person who can help close his last case is a socially awkward man who realizes that the hallucinations he’s had all his life may not be a figment of his imagination.
Ghost Projekt (Brett Matthews) (CBS TV Studios)
Based on the popular comic series, a female KGB agent and male American weapons inspector form an unlikely partnership when a deadly force is unwittingly unleashed from a Siberian research facility.
