We told you in October that Stargate feature film producer Dean Devlin and Stargate SG-1 co-creator Jonathan Glassner are teaming up. This week comes the news that their project — a 10-episode fantasy series — has a green light.
The Outpost has been picked up for Syfy Channel’s international distribution, and will air on Syfy in the U.K., France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Latin America, Poland, the Balkans, Middle East, Africa, and Australia.
There is still no word on a U.S. broadcaster.
Jessica Green (Ash vs. Evil Dead) has been cast as the series lead, Talon, the lone survivor of a race called “Blackbloods.”
Years after her village is destroyed by a gang of brutal mercenaries, Talon travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world as she tracks the killers of her family. On her journey, she discovers she has a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control to save herself and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.
Also starring are Jake Stormoen (Extinct), Andrew Howard (Hell on Wheels), Anand Desai-Barochia (Emmerdale), Robyn Malcolm (Top of the Lake), and Kristian Nairn (Game of Thrones‘ Hodor).
The series is created by Arrowstorm Entertainment’s Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin, who will also executive produce alongside Devlin, Glassner, and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson.
Devlin’s production company, Electric Entertainment, is also behind TNT’s fantasy drama The Librarians.
Production begins in Utah this week for delivery to broadcasters in late 2018, meaning the show could premiere before the year is out.
