Dozens of creators and actors share perspectives on Syfy's two decades of imaginative programming tonight (12/10) @ 9/8c.
Turn back time twenty years tonight as Syfy celebrates their expansion of the television landscape with producers and stars talking about the series and mini-series that have made the network the sci-fi staple that it is today. The network's imaginative evolution is lovingly explored covering not just its past but also its trans-media, multi-platform vision of the future.
Viewers can expect in-depth examinations of the Stargate franchise, Farscape, the Peabody and Hugo Award winning reimagined Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, and, current flagship series Warehouse 13. Sanctuary, Being Human, Lost Girl and Alphas are also touched upon along with the network's rich legacy of original reality and competition series as well as upcoming series Continuum (starring Rachel Nichols) and the amazingly ambitious Defiance. The informative anniversary special also includes fun retrospectives of Syfy's Saturday night creature features and the network's boundary-pushing role in spearheading the paranormal reality genre.
The captivating pop-cultural event features remembrances and insights from over forty behind-the-scenes creators and actors including Amanda Tapping, Michael Shanks, Claudia Black, Colin Ferguson, Katee Sackhoff, Tricia Helfer, Allison Scagliotti, Eric Balfour, Julie Benz, Anna Silk, Josh Gates, Jane Espenson, Ronald D. Moore, David Eick, and Roger Corman to name just a (very) few.
Join the two-hour celebration commemorating two decades of groundbreaking TV history tonight @ 9/8c (with an encore airing immediately afterwards at 11/10c) only on Syfy. Genre fans will not be disappointed. Imagine Greater!
