Aaron Stanford & Amanda Schull Star in 12 Monkeys, Premiering 1/16

12 MonkeysFriday Syfy premieres its new drama, 12 Monkeys. The series is based on the idea from the film of the same name and follows James Cole, played by Aaron Stanford, who comes from a future in which a virus has wiped out most of humanity. He travels back in time and with the help of virologist Dr. Cassandra Railly, played by Amanda Schull, tries to stop the Army of the 12 Monkeys from releasing the virus.

Recently the two stars talked to the digital media about the new series, which premieres Friday on Syfy.

According to the actors, the series is different from the film in many ways, but there were some things they pulled from the movie for their characters. Stanford told SciFi Vision, “For me, you know, it was a really interesting role for Bruce Willis, what he did with it. He’s generally remembered for really his action roles, just remember the John McClane, and he really brought this child-like innocence to the role in 12 Monkeys, and it was expressed in his experience of our presence, you know, of our roles. This was a man coming [from an] unimaginably unpleasant, difficult place, where all of the pleasures, comforts, and everything, art, it was all taken – stripped away from him.

Advance Review: Ascension - A Unique Voyage Into Space

By Jamie Ruby

AscensionMonday night Syfy premieres its new limited event, Ascension, which will run for three consecutive nights. The series follows a century-long space voyage as it has reached it's point of no return at fifty-one years, when there is a murder aboard the ship that will cause the crew and inhabitants to question their mission.

One of the interesting things about the series is that although it takes place in the present, the starship Ascension was launched in the 1960s. Therefore, none of the passengers have been influenced by the outside world and have developed their own society aboard the ship. As far as they know, they could be the last survivors of the human race after the Cold War. This makes it not only unique, but also poses problems for those dealing with the murder, as there is no outside help.

Exclusive: Tina Teeter Talks Town of the Living Dead & Thr33 Days Dead

Tina TeeterThis season Syfy premiered their new reality show Town of the Living Dead, which follows a group of people in Jasper, Alabama trying to make a zombie movie. Using their sweat and tears and not much in the way of a budget, the group struggled for six years to try to create their film Thr33 Days Dead when Syfy came to the rescue. The quirky team eventually made it through, taking the knowledge with them that the network would air their film upon completion. The documentary is their story.

The producer Tina Teeter recently talked to Jamie Ruby in an exclusive interview about their time making the film.

Teeter talked about how she became involved in creating the film. "Originally I had acted for many years; I did theater. And I actually got involved with this by going into RadioShack to buy my daughter a phone for Christmas. And I met John M. Ware; he's the director and the writer. I met him, and he mentioned to me he had a little bit part that he would like for me to do, which is mom in the movie, and I wanted to be a zombie. So that's how I became involved; I basically just wanted to be a zombie, a bit part.

Syfy Press Tour 2014 - Day 2: Helix

HelixThe third panel during the Syfy Press Tour was Helix. After an introduction by Bill McGoldrick, star Kyra Zagorsky, who plays Dr. Julia Walker, and executive producer Steven Maeda took the stage.

First off, Maeda talked a bit about the new location the series takes place in in season two. “One of the things we always talked about doing with the show, if we were fortunate enough to have a second season, was changing up the location. And because the show is so self-contained, it really occurs in one space for all 13 episodes.

“Obviously, season one, we were in the arctic at Arctic BioSystems, and it all blew up at the end of last year, so we can't go back.

Laura Mennell, Matthew McGuinness, & Gabrielle Stanton Talk Haven

Laura MennellRecently Alpha’s Laura Mennell joined the cast of Haven as epidemiologist Dr. Charlotte Cross, working for the CDC. The town of Haven struggles to keep her in the dark about what is really going on in the town.

The actress, along with showrunners Matthew McGuinness and Gabrielle Stanton, talked to the media recently about her role on the Syfy series, as well as what's still to come this season.

Mennell talked to SciFi Vision about whether her character can be trusted or not by those in Haven. “Well I think that’s part of the fun of this new introduction of Charlotte being this epidemiologist working for the CDC, because, I mean, yes, generally speaking she does pose a bit of a threat, which is kind of interesting coming into town, coming into Haven, not only as an outsider, but as this woman working for the CDC where Haven’s secrets could be exposed to possibly the worst person possible. But yes, I mean, throughout this season you’ll get to see whether she is a threat, whether she’s not a threat, whether she possibly could help. I think that’s part of the fun of it all.”

Syfy Press Tour 2014 - Day 2: 12 Monkeys

12 MonkeysThe first talent panel of the day at the Syfy Press Tour was 12 Monkeys. The panel was attended by stars Aaron Stanford, who plays time-traveler Cole, and Amanda Schull, who plays Dr. Cassandra Railly, Co-Executive Producer Travis Fickett, as well as EVP of Original Content of Syfy, Bill McGoldrick, who did the introduction.

McGoldrick gave the journalists some information on the series, and talked about how it is based on the film, which commemorates its 20th anniversary next year, and features the character of Cole who time travels from 2043 to present day. As in the film, Cole is on a mission to stop a deadly plague.

After a trailer of the show, Fickett talked about why it’s a perfect time now for the show. “I think because the audience was ready for a serialized time-travel show, something that Terry [Matalas] and I always wanted to do, and they, I think, were educated. The audience is educated now as to the intricacies of that kind of narrative style. Lost tricked everyone into doing a time travel show. At the start of season four, they're like, "Oh, by the way, we're a time travel show now," and it worked really well.

First news of note was about Sharknado. Unfortunately due to conflict, Ian Zierling couldn’t be at the press tour, so there was no panel. However, Howe had some exclusive news for the journalists. “Next year, Sharknado 3 will be storming the east coast. It will make landfall and attack America's favorite institution, Washington DC, and finally, Washington is getting what's coming to it. And then it will swallow the entire eastern seaboard, head down the coast, and end up, miraculously, in Orlando, Florida, where it will take out some of Orlando.
