Syfy has ordered two pilots, one from a genre writer/producer known for his quirky shows, and another from a well known mystery/thriller writer/producer/director marking his first foray into scripted television.
Bryan Fuller, who started off as writer and later co-produced Star Trek: Voyager and then created Dead Like Me,Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies and worked on Heroes, will team up with Robert Halmi Sr., to executive produce High Moon, and adaption of the 1969 John Christopher young adult novel The Lotus Caves, which is about two rebellious boys from a moon colony who crash into an underground cave to discover an alien life form.
In the other project, M. Night Shyamalan will join with Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mad Men) for Proof, about the “son of a billionaire tech genius who offers a large reward for anyone who can find proof of life after death following the tragic accident and sudden passing of his parents.” Shyamalan is best know for his thriller films, such as The Sixth Sense and The Village.
Here are the press releases:
On next Monday’s Alphas, an investigation leads Harken and Hicks to go undercover in a secret, underground Alphas-only Fight club. This episode introduces new cast member Erin Way as Kat.

It’s getting closer! We still don’t know exactly when BBC America will start airing the 7th series of Doctor Who, but we have a 90 second trailer to whet our appetite! And to also keep up our interest, starting Saturday night, BBC America will air a series of Doctor Who specials starting with “The Science of Doctor Who” at 9/8c [Ed- time corrected, I had apparently old info]. Then for the next three Saturdays, there will be another special:
“The Women of Doctor Who”, August 11th
“The Timey-Wimey Stuff of Doctor Who”, August 18th
“The Destinations of Doctor Who”, August 25th
Could this be leading up to a debut on September 1st? It begins in the UK on August 25th…anyways, check out the trailer!
In next Monday’s all new episode of Warehouse 13, Claudia and Jinks go “shopping” for a pair of sunglasses that may be an artifact…tune in at 9/8c on Syfy!
