Syfy announced a trio new scripted projects in development with Universal Cable Productions, CBS TV Studios and Fox Television Studios as the channel continues to expand it’s stable of original scripted programming, currently led by the quartet of Warehouse 13, Alphas, Eureka and Haven.
Leading the charge is an untitled project by Robert Hewitt Wolfe for Universal Cable Productions, which is about the Starship Defender on an expedition in search of lost worlds requiring law and order. Sounds a bit like Andromeda, which isn’t surprising: Wolfe was the series showrunner and developer, and has written and produced a number of other shows, notably Syfy’s Alphas.
In conjunction with Fox Television Studios, Seeing Things is about a cop becomes a ghost after his violent death and the only person who can help close his last case is a socially awkward man who realizes that the hallucinations he’s had all his life may not be a figment of his imagination. The project is being produced by David Slack (Person of Interest), Scott Rosenberg (Life on Mars) and Robert Cort (Jumanji), and written by Slack and Gabriel Stanton (The Vampire Diaries).
The third is Ghost Projekt from CBS Studios and producers Brett Matthews (Supernatural), Andy Bourne and Eric Gitter, based on the popular comic book series from Oni Press where a female KGB agent and male American weapons inspector form an unlikely partnership when a deadly force is unwittingly unleashed from a Siberian research facility.
