Network riding high ratings for scripted series this season
With last quarter breaking network records on the strength of scripted series “Warehouse 13,” “Eureka,” “Haven” and new skein “Alphas,” Syfy has three new scripted series in development.
“Dresden Files” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” producer Robert H. Wolfe is working on an untitled project for the net that’s set in the far future among a volatile interplanetary law agency employing both humans and trans-humans. Universal Cable Prods. produces.
On the development slate from Fox Television Studios and exec producer/co-lead writer David Slack is “Seeing Things,” a supernatural policier about a ghost cop and his ally, a socially awkward psychic.
Also on the net’s agenda: “Ghost Projekt,” from “Scott Pilgrim” comicbooks series publisher Oni Press and CBS TV studios. The show, based on the Oni series, follows a female KGB agent and a male American weapons inspector trying to stave off destruction at a Siberian research facility. Brett Matthews exec produces and writes; Andy Bourne and Eric Gitter are also exec producers.
