US indie Dynamic Television has acquired international distribution rights to supernatural thriller drama Wyonna Earp.
The 13-part series is based on a graphic novel from Beau Smith and follows a descendant of Wild West gunslinger, who uses her unique abilities and a dysfunctional posse of allies to bring the paranormal to justice.
The show comes from IDW Entertainment and SEVEN24 Films and will debut on NBCUniversal cable channel Syfy in the US in April 2016. Emily Andras (Lost Girl) is executive producer and showrunner.
Dynamic’s first class sales team combined with an exciting and original series concept, give us tremendous confidence that series will be seen by prime time audiences around the world,” said David Ozer, president of IDW.
“We fell in love with Wynonna when we read the script,” said Daniel March, managing partner, Dynamic. “We are always attracted to new series and original characters that deliver action, suspense, shock and flair. Wynonna is unlike any other character on television and we can’t wait to bring her to our broadcast partners.”
