If you were looking for an all original show not based on any comic, book or movie previously done than the SyFy Channel is usually the last place you are going to be looking.
That is about to change with a few shows, including their new show “Prototype”, from the writer of “24: Live Another Day”, Tony Basgallop.
“’Prototype’ is a purely original idea from a talented writer with a unique vision,” said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see this original idea come to life in this pilot for Syfy.”
The premise of PROTOTYPE centers on three unlikely cohorts who inadvertently stumble upon an invention that challenges the very nature of quantum physics – a discovery which in turn puts their lives in grave danger.
Oscar nominee Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“Esposados”) will direct. Escape Artists Productions (“Southpaw,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”) will serve as executive producers along with Fresnadillo and Basgallop. Taylor Latham (“Freeheld”) will be co-executive producer.
