Syfy Orders Scripted Alien Series ‘Hunters’ from ‘Walking Dead’s’ Gale Anne Hurd

Syfy has ordered “Hunters,” a 13-episode scripted sci-fi series from “Walking Dead” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and “12 Monkeys” e.p. Natalie Chaidez, who will also serve as writer.

The series, slated to premiere in 2016, is based on Whitley Strieber’s bestselling novel “Alien Hunter,” in which the disappearance of a decorated Philadelphia cop’s wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists – shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.

Hunters” hails from Universal Cable Productions with Valhalla Entertainment producing.

“We were so impressed by the pilot script from this outstanding and accomplished creative team led by Gale Anne Hurd and Natalie Chaidez,” said Syfy president Dave Howe. “This fast-paced and innovative story takes viewers inside a chilling yet all too familiar world. Adding ‘Hunters’ to new series such as ‘The Expanse,’ ’12 Monkeys,’ and the miniseries ‘Childhood’s End,’ provides us with a formidable lineup of diverse, high-end science fiction.”

“As a longtime fan of Whitley’s, I am absolutely thrilled to collaborate with everyone at Syfy and UCP, as well as the uber-talented showrunner, Natalie Chaidez, to bring ‘Hunters’ to life,” said Hurd.
