Syfy set dates for new series

IncorporatedMatt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Syfy show Incorporated will be hitting airwaves on November 30, the channel has announced.

Set in a near future where corporations have unlimited power, Incorporated follows Ben Larson (Sean Teale, “Reign”), a young executive who conceals his true identity to infiltrate a dangerous corporate world to save the woman he loves. But he’ll soon learn that he’s not the only one whose secrets may have deadly consequences. In addition to Teale, the series stars Dennis Haysbert as Julian, EmmJulia Ormond as Elizabeth, Allison Miller as Laura and Eddie Ramos  as Theo.  The series is created and co-executive produced by Alex Pastor and David Pastor, with Damon and Affleck as executive producers.

September will see the return of Z Nation and the premiere of Van Helsing on Friday 23rd. In a twist on the classic vampire adventure tale, Van Helsing revolves around unlikely heroine Vanessa Helsing (Kelly Overton, “True Blood”), who unexpectedly discovers that she holds the key to humanity’s survival: her own blood! Gifted with not only an immunity to vampires, Vanessa is also capable of taking out her bloodthirsty foes by turning them into humans with her bite. Now both prey and predator, Vanessa sinks her teeth into her role as humanity’s leader – and secret weapon – in their resistance against the vampires that plagued their world.

Tuesday 27th September will mark the startof both Channel Zero: Candle Cove and Aftermath.

The original anthology series Channel Zero is set to debut on Syfy with the first six-part installment Candle Cove. Based on an unnerving tale written by Kris Straub that gained notoriety online as a “creepypasta” (user-generated horror stories that are published and passed around the internet), Candle Cove centers on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s – and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood. From Universal Cable Productions, Channel Zero: Candle Cove is from showrunner and executive producer Nick Antosca (“Hannibal,” “Teen Wolf”), who wrote the Channel Zero pilot, and Max Landis (“Chronicle,” “American Ultra”).

Aftermath focuses on one family – Karen (Anne Heche, “Hung,” “Men in Trees”) and Joshua Copeland (James Tupper, “Revenge,” Grey’s Anatomy”) and their children. The Copelands battle for survival after civilization comes to an apocalyptic end — and they are faced not only with plague – but the rise of supernatural creatures.
