Syfy has partnered with Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment to develop a sci-fi/fantasy improv series.

The weekly, one-hour series will feature two teams battling each other in front of a live audience to win points and prizes. Each week the comedians will compete against a different improv squad in various sci-fi/fantasy related sketches.

The “home” team will consist of 4-6 nationally known comedians, while a nationwide casting call will occur later this summer to determine the “away” teams.

Cannon and Michael Goldman will serve as executive producers.

Cannon is the creator and executive producer of improv series “Wild ‘N Out” that debuted on MTV in 2005. After at six year hiatus, the show returned on MTV 2 in 2013 and recently premiered its sixth season in July.

This comes just a few days after the CW announced its renewal of popular improv series “Whose Line is it Anyways,” which is set to premiere in 2015.
