A Very Syfy Christmas

Syfy's original series, Eureka, first premiered in the summer of 2006, and by the following year became Syfy's (at the time SCI FI) most watched series. The series focuses on the small town of geniuses called Eureka, where mayhem always ensues. Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) tries to keep the town together with the help of Deputy Jo Lupo (Erica Cerra), Dr. Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), Henry Deacon (Joe Morton), Douglas Fargo (Neil Grayston), and other members of the town. The fourth season centers around the fact that after traveling to 1946, the five characters, along with Dr. Trevor Grant (James Callis), return to find things completely different from when they left it, with Fargo now in charge of Global Dynamics.

Another original series, Warehouse 13, centers on a top-secret storage facility and the Secret Service agents, Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) and Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), and their friends that run it. Their job is to find artifacts that have supernatural (or sometimes mundane) powers and return them to the warehouse. They are led by their boss Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek), the warehouse caretaker, and joined by agent-in-training Claudia Donovan, played by Allison Scagliotti.

This season, Syfy's two most popular shows ran crossover episodes -- the first on Warehouse 13, when Fargo travels to the warehouse to assist with an update of their computer systems. Later, Claudia visits Eureka (where the "purple goo" used in the warehouse is manufactured) when objects from 1946 start appearing in the present.

Both series will be airing special Christmas themed episodes on Tuesday, December 7th. Eureka will air at 9pm ET/PT followed by Warehouse 13 at 10pm ET/PT. Official press releases for both Eureka and Warehouse 13 are available.

Neil Grayston has appeared on television in the past on various series such as Smallville and Supernatural. He had reoccuring roles in the series Edgemont and Wonderfalls, as well as starred in Godiva, for which he was nominated for a Leo Award (Canada). Besides playing the role of Fargo, Grayston also is the voice of S.A.R.A.H, the artificial intelligence that runs the sheriff's household, on Eureka.

Allison Scagliotti began acting at eleven with her role in the pilot America's Most Terrible Things. She has previously appeared in series such as ER, One Tree Hill, and CSI, but is probably best known for her work on Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh. Scagliotti also won an award at the BendFilm Festival for her work in Redemption Maddie (AFI). She will also be starring in the upcoming film Losers Take All, to be released next year.

Grayston and Scagliotti sat down to talk to the digital media about their series and the upcoming holiday episodes during a press tour in Orlando, Florida last Monday.
