Samsung Galaxy "Shangri-La" Party in New Orleans Featuring Jamie Foxx

Syfy looks to be moving past its Saturday night mutant monster phase with a slate of new original programming for 2013 and beyond.



Syfy, in the midst of announcing their new slate of programming and pilots, has confirmed that "Being Human" is coming back for a fourth season because you people can not get enough of Sam Witwer.



We need more plague horror on TV. Well, plague sci-fi.

Hey, wonder what "Battlestar Galactica" developer Ron Moore's been up to since "Caprica"? He's been trying to get "Helix" off the ground, a new series about a mysterious outbreak in the Arctic, and the team of scientists trying to stop it. Well, according to Deadline, SyFy is really keen on the pitch, picking it up as a 13-episode series with a planned start date sometime this year according to Deadline.


Check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary revealing the making-of Haven's special Halloween-themed episode, which will air on Friday, October 26 at 10/9c on Syfy. #EscapeToHaven

The doc takes an inside look at tonight's show guest-starring "Game of Thrones"' Iain Glen and directed by "Beverly Hills 90210" alumnus Jason Priestly, spotlighting the cast and creators in the slow buildup from the page to the screen. How will they break the story? Who will get to be a cowboy? Will the episode make it to air? (Spoilers: yes).


With three seasons under their belts, actors Joanne Kelly, Eddie McClintock, Saul Rubinek, and Allison Scagliottit take some quality time during SDCC to talk about their SyFy series.

The latest project from SyFy plans to blend a weekly science fiction drama with an expansive MMO from developer Trion Worlds. During SDCC, the cast and creators talked about blending the two formats and why they really, really think it'll work.


The first and second seasons of this hour-long supernatural series are coming your way in October and November from FUNimation.

Tonight, the SyFy Channel is airing Christmas-themed episodes for three of their most popular series: Haven, Warhouse 13, and of course, Eureka. Placing its show's cast in some manner of yuletide peril the episodes will have everything from mixed animation styles to mysterious disappearances. So of course, we had to speak to some of the cast about what they had in store for viewers this week. During a brief chat with Colin Ferguson (Eureka), Emily Rose (Haven), and Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13), I got the a little info on what what you might expect to see in a SyFy Christmas, and why it made sense to mix their shows with this particular holiday.

A werewolf and a vampire move into an apartment with a ghost--do the vampire and the werewolf get annoyed when the ghost uses the electricity without paying her share? Season two of SyFy's domestic take on the U.K. import Being Human is starting its second season in January. The premise remains pretty much the same after crossing the Atlantic: an emotionally tortured werewolf (Sam Huntington) at the end of his rope about the whole monthly killing spree thing moves in with a brooding vampire attempting to restore his own ways by going dry (Sam Witwer), and their new place is haunted by a friendly, chatty ghost of a murdered young woman (Meaghan Rath).

So have I ever mentioned that I have a girl crush on Ashley Eckstein? You know, the founder of Her Universe and voice of Ahsoka Tano on Clone Wars?? She is just so frakking adorable, nice, cute and when I stand next to her, I look like I'm six months pregnant! WTF??? Ok enough, anyway, Her Universe is debuting all new holiday products this Monday November 28th!!

In addition to presenting assorted new Geek Girl pieces to the Her Universe product line, Eckstein is offering a FREE Limited Edition Star Wars holiday pin of everyone's favorite Jedi Master, Yoda. For the first 500 orders placed on shoppers will receive this pin along with a signed card from Eckstein, herself. For orders of $40.00 or more, customers will receive FREE SHIPPING as well.

Available for the first time this holiday season is a new thermal hoodie design with original art by Star Wars artist, Cat Staggs. Also from the beloved Star Wars franchise is a regal sterling silver plated Jedi charm to add to the already popular Star Wars charm bracelet. For Syfy, Eckstein has created several new products for their television shows including a Battlestar Galactica pajama set and a stunning, sterling silver plated Battlestar Galactica necklace featuring Admiral Adama's senior pilot wings. For followers of Warehouse 13, Eckstein has produced an ultra-soft WH 13 logo burnout tee so you can imagine you're a Warehouse agent seeking supernatural artifacts while you "snag it, bag it and tag it." As a fan of the Syfy series, Eureka, Eckstein has created a useful holiday tote bag featuring the cast of Eureka in animated form with exclusive art from the holiday episode of this fan favorite show. All of these new items will be available to order on the Her Universe website starting on November 28th.

Ok I speak for myself when I say the hoodie has me written all over it!! How damn cute is that? And how true? Yikes..

Ok time to start shopping for my fellow chick Jedis!

Via The Hollywood Reporter, we've learned that the Oni miniseries Ghost Projekt is in development at the SyFy network. No word on what kind of project Projekt is taking shape as--presumably a series of some sort--but it has Brett Matthews of Supernatural on board as writer and executive producer joined by Andy Bourne and Eric Gitter in additional executive producer roles.

The comics, from writer Joe Harris and artist Steve Rolston, involve Will Haley, a terminally-ill American nuclear weapons inspector in modern-day Russia, whose investigations into an abandoned former Soviet site unearths a man-made supernatural horror. Along the way, he's joined by a taciturn and brutally efficient KGB agent, Anya Romanova, half of whose job is the unearth secrets buried by the Soviet regime while the other half is to keep Will alive and out of the way.

I really enjoyed the series when I reviewed it earlier this year:

Harris more or less threads the needle with the challenge of a story of this type: he tries to keep the characters grounded so that the situations in which they find themselves don’t come across as ridiculous. Will and Anya make an interesting pair, the story not really taking any pains to press them together as romantic co-leads. They just happen to be two people good at their jobs: he, a person particularly adept as sniffing out loose weapons, and her, someone particularly good at brutalizing people for information.

While the cast of the Syfy network’s paranormal investigative series Ghost Hunters are usually the ones doing the investigating, at DragonCon 2011 these spooky sleuths were the ones under the microscope.

Several of the stars of Ghost Hunters were haunting DragonCon this year and participating in various panel discussions. On September 5, the last day of the con, haint hunters Steve Gonsalves and Amy Bruni led one of the last and largest Q&A sessions of DragonCon 2011.

The pair fielded a variety of questions including the following:

On some of their investigations not making it on television:
“There are a lot of places we’ve investigated that don’t make it on TV,” Gonsalves said. “Out of every 10 investigations, at least three don’t make it to air. It’s not necessarily because you didn’t get any results. ...The show is really more about the investigators. At a production meeting, I was told that it’s all about getting the audience invested in the cast and getting them to care.”

On one particular investigation that didn’t make it on air:
“There was a time during season one when we went to a house and the family out-of-their-minds mortified,” Gonsalves said. “It was a feeling I’ve never felt before. It was like getting smacked with a baseball bat; a really oppressive force. The landlord kicked the production team out. The producers said, ‘Well, we have to leave.’ We all left, but I ended up calling the family and meeting with them. I said, ‘Screw the production company.’ We had to meet with them.”

On one of the most frightening experiences that’s ever happened:
“We were at the Otesaga Hotel in Cooperstown, N.Y. I was with my friend Adam Blai, who is a demonologist,” Bruni said. “We passed room 585, and Adam felt something very angry in there. We went in, sat down and talked to whatever was there. I said, ‘It’s your chance to be heard.’ ...All of a sudden a piece of crown molding ripped off the wall by itself. I could hear the nails ripping out. It came off the wall and was flying at me. I started laughing, which is what I do when I’m scared. Then I started cursing. I really wish we could’ve captured that on camera.”

On how their live Hallloween shows differ from regular episodes:
“It’s six hours of live investigation, and it’s pretty insane,” Gonsalves said. “It’s much more organized and choreographed, because it’s live. The investigation isn’t set up or anything, but we’re all told to be in specific places.”

“It’s a legitimate investigation,” Bruni adds. “We have a totally different crew filming us. Usually it’s sports guys filming us, because they have experience doing live sports broadcasts, They usually have a good time making fun of us.”

************ UPDATE *****************

Actors Wil Wheaton and Erica Cerra React!


Eureka, SyFy’s show set in a town filled with mad scientists, and their accompanying mad science will end its run after five seasons, as announced via press release today. What makes this especially shocking? SyFy announced that they had ordered a six episode sixth season of the show… Just last week.

Not only that, but the network seemed to express regret that they only had the six additional episodes, and hoped that the franchise would continue in some form. Instead, the currently running Season 4.5, and the in production Season 5 will be the final episodes of the show.

Here’s a statement from SyFy, as reported by

“After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka. But Eureka is not over yet. There is a new holiday episode this December and 12 stellar episodes set to debut next year, marking its fifth season and six memorable years on Syfy. The 2012 episodes are some of the best we’ve seen, and will bring this great series to a satisfying end. We are very grateful to Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia, their team of incredible writers, and an amazing cast and crew who have consistently delivered a series we continue to be very proud of. We thank the fans for their support of this show and know they will enjoy its final season in 2012.“
