Jessica Green of Australia’s Lightning Point fame will star, playing the “the lone survivor of a race called “Blackbloods.'” After the destruction of her people, Green’s character “discovers she possesses a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself, and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.”Devlin previously billed The Outpost as “an exciting fantasy with a strong female lead that will capture the imagination of fans of both Game of Thrones and Wonder Woman.”
Rounding out the cast are Imogen Waterhouse, Anand Desai-Barochia, Jake Stormoen, Robyn Malcolm, Cnaran Prabhakar, and Andrew Howard.
International audiences will be able to watch The Outpost on Syfy Channel. A premiere date has yet to be announced, but series will air sometime this summer both domestically and internationally.
