While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the film ‘Legion’, the fine folks at Syfy were and decided to turn it into a television series called ‘Dominion’ and we have the first teaser for you here. I really enjoyed the concept of the film itself and where they were going with it and do hope Syfy does a better job with the show itself.
Part of my pessimism here might be that I have a love and hate relationship with Syfy. They put out so many good shows but are also partially responsible for things like ‘Sharknado‘. With how much I loved the introduction to their most recent series, ‘Bitten’, I’ll of course, have to give them the benefit of the doubt. It helps that the names of the cast that are recognizable have all done well in the past.
The film was written and directed by Scott Stewart (‘Legion’, ‘Priest’) who’s on board to direct the first episode and will be an executive producer with Michel Litvak and David Lancaster. The first episode was written by Vaun Wilmott (‘Sons of Anarchy’) who is also set to be one of the executive producers.
Based on characters from the 2010 film Legion, Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. when an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25-year long battle are newly fortified cities which protect human survivors.
