Images From Haven: SyFy’s New Cops Investigate Weird Series
When the Sci-Fi Channel changed their name to SyFy, most assumed it was so they could start showing more wrestling. But apparently “SyFy” is some sort of code for “government employees investigating weird occurences”. SyFy has set about producing all sorts of new, science fiction related programming but… for some bizarre reason… it all seems to be centered around this same, X-Files knockoff theme.
Some of them are entertaining, like Eureka, others are Warehouse 13. Here’s their latest entry in the odd cops investigate freaky stuff genre: Haven.
Haven premieres Friday, July 9th on SyFy. Here’s what it’s about:
Syfy’s all-new one-hour drama series Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) who has a lost past, and arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.
As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven — including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.
The impressive creative team behind Haven includes showrunner Scott Shepherd (Tru Calling, The Dead Zone) who is joined by E1 Entertainment’s John Morayniss (Hung, Copper) Noreen Halpern (Hung, Copper), Laszlo Barna (The Bridge) and Michael Rosenberg (Hung, The Riches) as well as his partners, Executive Producers Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller (The Dead Zone, Wildfire, Greek). The pilot was written by Sam Ernst (The Dead Zone) and Jim Dunn (The Dead Zone) who will also serve as executive producers on the series.
