One of the new and unique shows that will be debuting next year has to be Syfy’s transmedia series ‘Defiance.’ If you recall, this is the series that will be combining the experience of MMO gaming with the storyline of the show.
Production of ‘Defiance’ started earlier this month in Toronto and although it’s only a few short weeks in, Syfy and Trion have managed to release a behind the scenes video of what the audience can expect.
Grant Bowler (‘True Blood,’ ‘The Cape’), Julie Benz (‘A Gifted Man,‘ ‘No Ordinary Family,’ ‘Dexter’) , Jamie Murray (‘Warehouse 13,’ ‘Valentine’, ‘Ringer’), and Tony Curran (‘Doctor Who,’ ‘Gemini Division,’ ‘The Pillars of the Earth’) are featured in this behind the scenes featurette as well as the creative team for the game. No spoilers are given in this making of video but it does reveal the premise of the series and some great concept art.
Here is the official synopsis:
Set in the near future, Defiance introduces a completely transformed planet Earth, inhabited by the human and alien survivors of a universal war. Forced to co-habitate, the disparate group struggles to build a new society among the devastation. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story.
‘Defiance’ is slated to premiere on the Syfy channel sometime in April 2013.
