The Syfy Channel has announced three new projects in development from Universal, CBS TV Studios and Fox Television. They include two horror shows (one slightly X-files-ish) and one new science fiction vehicle being thought of as Trek-like.
The three projects are...
Unity Defender (working title)
Universal Cable Productions
Robert H. Wolfe is the executive producer/writer of this new space opera science fiction series. 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
David Slack is the executive producer, with David Slack and Gabrielle Stanton as 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 realises that the hallucinations he's had all his life may not be a figment of his imagination.
Ghost Projeck (actual title)
CBS TV Studios
Brett Matthews is the executive producer and writer. This one is based on the 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.
Mark Stern, SyFy's president, 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."
