As Eureka’s thrilling fifth and final season kicks off, the town is reeling after the Astraeus and her crew mysteriously vanished just before their planned launch to Titan. When they finally crash land, Allison and the crewmembers are shocked to find themselves back in Eureka – and that they’ve been missing for four years.

Lost Girl stars Anna Silk as Bo, co-starring Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson; Ksenia Solo as Kenzi; Zoie Palmer as Lauren; Rick Howland as Trick, and K.C. Collins as Hale. Lost Girl is a Prodigy Pictures Production in association with Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Michelle Lovretta and Peter Mohan. Lost Girl was created by Michelle Lovretta.

SYFY WILL RING IN THE CHRISTMAS SEASON WITH STAND-ALONE HOLIDAY EPISODES OF EUREKA, WAREHOUSE 13 AND HAVEN

October 12, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6 FROM 8-11PM AS PART OF SECOND ANNUAL COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS WEEK

ORLANDO — October 10, 2011 – For the second straight Christmas season, Syfy will present special, stand-alone holiday episodes of its hit scripted series Eureka, Warehouse 13 — and for the first time — Haven.

The episodes will premiere Tuesday, December 6 from 8-11PM (Eureka at 8PM, Warehouse 13 at 9PM and Haven at 10PM) during Syfy’s second annual Countdown to Christmas Week.

In Eureka’s “Do You See What I See,” the quaint town of geniuses is transformed into animated versions of themselves. Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) are secretly planning the perfect holiday surprise for their kids. But a mysterious kaleidoscopic wave of color crashes over Eureka, leaving the entire town and its inhabitants animated. Leading production and entertainment company Curious Pictures will produce the animation featured in the episode, which will be broken up into different styles including Anime, claymation, animation inspired by the Looney Tunes cartoons and modern cg. The episode features a stellar line up of guest stars lending their voices to a variety of characters, including Emmy Award-winner Jim Parsons, Edward James Olmos, Chris Parnell and Matt Frewer.

In Warehouse 13’s “The Greatest Gift,” Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) is hit in the head by an artifact and wakes up to a life where he was never born. Pete must hunt down and persuade the Warehouse team (none of whom recognize him) to go on this life or death mission with him to vanquish a long dead nemesis from the past to get everyone’s lives back. This episode takes a page from It’s a Wonderful Life and The Greatest Gift, which is the short story on which the iconic movie was based. As he did last year, showrunner Jack Kenny directed the holiday episode.

In Haven’s “Silent Night,” Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) begins seeing Christmas decorations mysteriously popping up all over Haven in the middle of July yet nobody else, including Nathan (Lucas Bryant), seem to feel anything is unusual.  Yet, when Haven residents start disappearing into thin air, Audrey convinces Nathan they must find a way to stop it.

Eureka and Warehouse 13 are produced by Universal Cable Productions.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd, and is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).

SYFY’S EUREKA GETS ANIMATED THIS DECEMBER FOR A SPECIAL HOLIDAY-THEMED EPISODE

July 25, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), Matt Frewer (Max Headroom) and Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica) Will Voice Characters Featured in the Animated Episode

NEW YORK – July 25, 2011 – Syfy’s hit series Eureka gets an animated makeover this December for a special holiday themed episode, proving that indeed anything is possible in the town of Eureka. In the first-of-its-kind episode, the quaint town of geniuses will be transformed into animated versions of themselves. The stand-alone holiday episode will also feature a stellar line up of guest stars lending their voices to a variety of characters – Jim Parsons, Chris Parnell, Matt Frewer and Edward James Olmos. The airdate for the holiday episode will be announced at a later date.

In the episode “Do You See What I See,” it’s Christmas again in Eureka, and Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) are secretly planning the perfect holiday surprise for their kids. But something mysterious interferes with the super-photon generator designed to create a faux winter wonderland on Main Street, sending a kaleidoscopic wave of color crashing over Eureka, and leaving the entire town and its inhabitants animated. Adapting to the rules of their animated world, our cartoon heroes encounter talking creatures, anthropomorphized machines, and snowy foes as they race to find a solution before Christmas morning…or face potentially being a cartoon forever.

Jim Parsons is set to voice Carter’s long put-on Jeep, who’s had enough of his owner’s cavalier attitude towards him. Edward James Olmos will voice Rudy, the leader of a pack of sled dogs who befriends Deputy Andy. Chris Parnell also guest stars as Dr. Noah Drummer, reprising his role from last year’s Christmas special. Matt Frewer will be featured as an animated, altered version of himself, and helps Jo (Erica Cerra) make an important realization about her tough-girl personality.

Leading production and entertainment company Curious Pictures will produce the animation featured in the episode, which will be broken up into different styles including Anime, claymation, animation inspired by the Looney Tunes cartoons and modern cg.

Eureka continues with all-new episodes Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy. On tonight’s episode, Stan Lee makes a cameo appearance as Dr. Lee, an expert in the effects of gamma radiation who is a candidate for the special mission that has been given to Global Dynamics.

Eureka seems like any other cozy, Pacific Northwest town, but is actually a secret community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they’ve unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen… and does. Eureka stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston and Niall Matter. Co-creator Jaime Paglia and Bruce Miller are Executive Producers and the series is produced by Universal Cable Productions.
