A couple more quick items from Syfy…Wendy Crewson (The Santa Clause trilogy) will join the upcoming event series Ascension as Martha Warren, Harris Enzmann’s (played by The Shawshank Redemption‘s Gil Bellows) boss, an elegant woman with a polished exterior, but a formidable adversary.
Ascension is 6-hour event series drama following a covert U.S. space mission launched in the 1960’s that sent hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Half way into their journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.
In addition, Syfy has put into development Absolute Zero, a futuristic alien invasion drama from Michael Horowitz (Burn Notice), Hypnotic and Universal Cable Productions. Set in 2124, Absolute Zero follows the denizens of a remote mining colony who discover a dangerous new species on a moon of Jupiter, setting off the first stage of an alien invasion ultimately heading for Earth.
