Alphas on Syfy
Here’s a press release about the series:
“Alphas,” Syfy’s newest original scripted drama series,is an action-packed thriller from writers Zak Penn (“The Avengers,” “X-Men: The Last Stand,”) and Michael Karnow. In the series, five ordinary people are brought together to form one extraordinary team of Alphas — people with the unique power to stretch the capabilities of the human mind giving them superhuman physical and mental abilities.
Operating within the Defense Criminal Investigation Service of the U.S. Department of Defense and led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn), an expert in Alpha phenomena, the team investigates cases that point to others with Alpha abilities. As they work against the clock to solve this new brand of crime, they must prevent their own personality differences and disparate backgrounds from interfering with their ultimate mission to catch the enemy.
In addition to David Strathairn (“Temple Grandin,” “Good Night, and Good Luck”), the ensemble cast stars Malik Yoba (“New York Undercover,” “Why Did I Get Married?”), Warren Christie (“October Road”), Laura Mennell (“Watchmen”), Ryan Cartwright (“Mad Men,” “Bones”) and Azita Ghanizada (“Castle”).
“Alphas” consists of 12 episodes including the 90-minute pilot directed by Jack Bender (Emmy nominated director and executive producer of “Lost”). The series is a production of Universal Cable Productions and BermanBraun Television. Executive Producers are Zak Penn, Ira Steven Behr (“The 4400”) and Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein for BermanBraun.
