Syfy greenlights 'The Wil Wheaton Project' for summer
Syfy has given a 12-episode order to "The Wil Wheaton Project," a 30-minute celebration of science fiction and genre entertainment hosted by the "Stand by Me" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star and Twitter icon.
“Wil Wheaton’s rock star status within the genre fan base, along with his insatiable passion for all things pop culture make him the ideal arbiter of what’s hot and what’s not in the genre space," blurbs Syfy's Dave Howe. “Wil’s legion of fans will relish his wry sense of humor and sharp wit, coupled with his unique commentary on the most popular genre entertainment out there.”
The weekly series will premiere on Tuesday, May 27 at 10 p.m.
“'The Wil Wheaton Project' has been incredibly fun to develop, and I can’t wait for my fellow geeks to see it," states Wheaton.
