Warehouse 13

SyFy Announces 3 New Scripted Series

There’s been a whole lot of snarking about the lack of sci-fi on SyFy channel. The network has been padding profits off cheap products, like reality shows, wrestling and goofy paranormal shows. Least not forget that every single time you begin to like a TV show someone cries money and scraps it (Eureka, Stargate Universe, Caprica..etc). Suffice to say, it’s become harder and harder to remain a loyal SyFy fan. While shows like Warehouse 13, Haven and Alphas are enough to keep you holding on, SyFy needs some new shit – and new shit we’re gonna get. The Network has announced three new scripted series, revolving around a ghosts, human and trans-humans in space, and whatever the hell broke out of a Siberian research facility.
Check out the details on three new scripted series below.

Here’s Syfy’s official press release:

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.

They all look like interesting projects in their own right and each could be a smash hit in the making, I give them each two seasons at most.

Squee! San Diego Comic Con, the media mecca for comics, movies, television, video games, toys and more, is a little over 4 weeks a way (July 21-24) . Good lord we can’t wait! Oh, FYI NerdBastards will be in attendance. Luke Gallagher and Mrs. NerdBastards (aka Luke’s mistress, life coach and supplier of NOMs) Crystal H. will be doing some field reporting, schmoozing with celebs, and procuring as much swag as we can. We’ll also be on hand to meet with any NB fans in attendance. Come say hi (Will be wearing NB t-shirts, as scene on splitreason.com). Tell us how much you love us, or how much you hate us. Either way, we’re happy to meet you. Though, if you say some shit, that nullifies your chances of getting any free fan appreciation swag from us. Also,  warning to the busty nerdy girlies out there, Luke is a weak and very perverted man. Stay at-least 5 feet away.

Anyway, as the dates come closer and closer, news on guest appearances, panels and other festivities will be rolling out. At the moment, thanks to TV Line, we have a list of what TV shows and stars will be in attendance.

HIT THE JUMP for the run-down.
