LONDON — TV series “Dark Matter” is going global on Syfy following its U.S. premiere on the channel on June 12.

It will air on Syfy in 86 countries, including the U.K., France, Germany, Spain and Australia. Regions where it plays on the channel include Asia, Central Europe and Latin America.

The series is created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie (“Stargate” franchise), based on their graphic novel of the same name, published by Dark Horse Comics. It is produced by Prodigy Pictures (“Lost Girl,” “XIII”).

The 13 one-hour episodes follow the crew of a derelict spaceship who are awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets.

“Dark Matter” will feature Melissa O’Neil (Broadway production of “Les Miserables”), Marc Bendavid (“Bitten”), Anthony Lemke (“White House Down”), Alex Mallari Jr. (“Robocop”) and Jodelle Ferland (“Twilight”) with Roger Cross (“The Strain”) and Zoie Palmer (“Lost Girl”). Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Joseph Mallozzi, Paul Mullie and Vanessa Piazza. The series is distributed internationally by Endemol Shine International.

Syfy’s international operation is part of Universal Networks Intl., the international channels’ division of NBCUniversal.
