Syfy’s game-based series to get UK outing

Defiance, Syfy’s online computer game and TV series crossover, will be shown in the UK 24 hours after its US launch next month.

NBC Universal-backed pay TV channel Syfy and games publisher Trion Worlds are making Defiance, which they claim marks a first-of-its-kind convergence between the TV and online gaming sectors.

The launch of the scripted TV series will coincide with the release of the online game and the gameplay and storylines of the series will be intertwined thereafter.

The show debuts in the US in on April 16th and will be carried on Syfy in the UK the following day.

The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and executive produced by Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Caprica; Hellcats) and Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica).
