Last week we told you about Riese: Kingdom Falling, a brand new fantasy-steampunk Web series set to debut exclusively at Syfy.com (story). Today’s the day for Episode #1, “Hunt,” which is now available online.
The episode is just under 10 minutes in length, and introduces viewers to a wanderer named Riese (Christine Chatelain), her wolf companion Fenrir, and the dying land of Eleysia and its oppressive ruler, Amara (Atlantis‘s Sharon Taylor). A new episode of the 10-part series will be released every Tuesday and Thursday for the next five weeks.
Shot in Vancouver, the show features a host of familiar faces from Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, and other science fiction and fantasy favorites, including Sanctuary, Smallville, and Battlestar Galactica. This first episode features familiar faces like Patrick Gilmore (“Dale Volker”), Sharon Taylor (“Amelia Banks”), Ryan Robbins (“Ladom Radim”), and Alessandro Juliani (“Eliam,” “Katep”).
The show is narrated by Amanda Tapping (Stargate‘s Samantha Carter).
