Sutherland’s East Side, Sci Fi team

Follmer, Iungerich writing 'Phenomenon'

Kiefer Sutherland’s East Side Entertainment has landed a script-development deal with the Sci Fi Channel for the two-hour pilot of a proposed series called “Phenomenon.”

The melodrama follows a team of scientists and medical experts, led by what Sci Fi calls “a young female prodigy with a mysterious past,” as they try to find explanations for phenomena that appear to defy the laws of physics and biology.”

Mark Stern, executive VP of programming for Sci Fi, said, “In ‘Phenomenon,’ ordinary people have their assumptions about the natural world — their very belief systems — completely shattered when they’re confronted by unsettling, unexplained phenomena.”

Twentieth Century Fox TV’s Fox 21 arm is attached to “Phenomenon,” and Sutherland’s co-executive producer is Maggie Murphy, who’s also president of East Side Entertainment.

The writers of the script are Brad Follmer and Lauren Iungerich.
