Syfy Announces New Scripted Projects

Posted on the 10 November 2011 by Entil2001 @criticalmyth

From the Syfy press release:

Marking another phase of its record expansion of original programming, Syfy today announced three new scripted projects in development from Universal Cable Productions, CBS TV Studios and Fox Television Studios.

In making the announcement, Mark Stern, President, Original Content, Syfy, and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions, said: “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.”

Syfy’s quartet of popular scripted series — “Warehouse 13″, “Alphas”, “Eureka” and “Haven” — powered the channel to its most watched Third Quarter ever, drawing 1.45 million total viewers.

On Monday, January 16 at 9PM (ET/PT), “Being Human” will return for its second season, followed by the premiere of “Lost Girl” at 10PM.

Syfy Scripted Development Slate

UNT. ROBERT H. WOLFE PROJECT
Universal Cable Productions
Robert H. Wolfe — Executive Producer/Writer

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.

[Ed. - This certainly sounds interesting, and Wolfe's tenure as showrunner of "Andromeda" was the show's best era.]

SEEING THINGS (working title)
Fox Television Studios
David Slack — Executive Producer
Scott Rosenberg and Robert Cort — Co-Executive Producers
David Slack and Gabrielle Stanton — Writers

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.

[Ed. - This could go either way, really. It all comes down to the execution.]

GHOST PROJEKT
Oni Press
CBS TV Studios
Brett Matthews — Executive Producer/Writer
Andy Bourne, Eric Gitter — Executive Producer

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.

[Ed. - This definitely has promise, but I wonder if they can do the concept justice on the typical Syfy budget.]
