Syfy orders 'Dominion' to series
Syfy gave a series order this week to the new drama series "Dominion," based on the 2010 film "Legion."
Christopher Egan stars in the drama, which is set in the year 25 A.E. in a post-apocalyptic future in which army of lower angels is warring against what's left of humanity.
In addition to Egan, "Dominion" stars Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Alan Dale and Anthony Stewart Head. The pilot was written by Vaun Wilmott and directed by Scott Stewart, who helmed the feature.
"Following the critical success of ‘Defiance’ and the upcoming Ron Moore thriller ‘Helix,’ ‘Dominion’ will be the next major addition to Syfy’s growing slate of high quality scripted series," blurbs Syfy President Dave Howe. "'Dominion' will continue Syfy’s new strategy to commission stand-out genre series that deliver the high stakes, sci-fi/fantasy experience our audience demands and embraces."
"Dominion" will shoot in South Africa and will premiere in 2014.
