Syfy’s The Wil Wheaton Project starts in just one week – Tuesday May 27th at 10/9c. What is it you ask? Well, here’s the official description:
The Wil Wheaton Project, a weekly topical comedy show hosted by actor, blogger and champion of geek culture Wil Wheaton, is coming to Syfy on Tuesday, May 27th at 10/9c. The 30-minute show will offer a fast-paced, lighthearted exploration and celebration of all things within the realm of science fiction and genre entertainment. Each week, Wil provides his insider point-of-view, sense of humor and genre expertise as he dissects the week’s most popular and trending topics across science fiction film, television and pop culture, video games, viral videos and news. Wil is on his feet for the rapid-fire half hour, delivering witty commentary on the things he knows and loves in this golden age of sci-pop culture. The result is a fun appreciation and celebration of fandom and all things science fiction.
This marks the return for Syfy into the genre news area in I believe over 15 years, when the then SciFi Channel had “Sci-Fi Buzz”, hosted by Mike Jerrick with an Andy Rooney-like editorial segment by Harlan Ellison.
What’s Wil’s show like? Check out this trailer:
