Say what you will about their original movies, but Syfy airs some good T.V. shows. The channel has acquired of the Canadian supernatural crime drama series "LOST GIRL" from Prodigy Pictures. The deal includes the 13 episodes of the first season, which aired in Canada last year, and the 13 episodes from the upcoming second season. Here's the scoop:
Lost Girl stars supernatural seductress Bo, a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door - until she "drained" her first boyfriend to death.
Bo has since hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them in secret, as they have for millennia. She is faced with choosing an allegiance between the Dark or Light Fae clans. Bo decides to take the middle path between humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin, protecting humans along the way.
The series was created by M.A. Lovretta. Anna Silk (below), Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland and K.C. Collins star. Notable directors whom have helmed episodes include John Fawcett (GINGER SNAPS), Paul Fox (THE DARK HOURS) and Robert Lieberman (FIRE IN THE SKY).
Syfy Executive Vice President Thomas Vitale had this to say: "In one year, Lost Girl has electrified viewers in Canada and around the world. We’re delighted to bring this fascinating, high-octane series, which depicts a unique world and memorable heroine, to the Syfy audience."
Jay Firestone, the show's executive producer, added: "We’re thrilled to have Syfy on board as our broadcast partner in the U.S. Lost Girl is a unique series that thrusts a strong, independent female lead into uncompromising circumstances. It’s a series that takes risks with unconventional storylines and provocative character development."
No word on when the show will begin airing on Syfy, but we'll keep you updated. Will you check it out when it makes its way to the U.S.?
