It’s pilot season, y’all! Which means lots of exciting (hopefully) new shows to look forward to this Fall. Today Syfy announced it has greenlit the pilot of an original sci-fi thriller called Prototype, written by 24:Live Another Day alum Tony Basgallop.
The new series revolves around three groups who accidentally stumble upon an invention that challenges the laws of quantum physics — a discovery, which of course, puts their lives in danger from mysterious forces.
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.
Prototype joins Brave New World, 3001: The Final Odyssey, Hyperion, Kypton, and Incorporated on the ride down Syfy’s development pipeline. It’s shaping up to be an exciting time for the network coming off the success of Childhood’s End last December.
