“Defiance” Producers Sign On for “Dominion”

If you’re a fan of Syfy’s hit show Defiance, you’ll be glad to hear that Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer have signed on as Executive Producers and co-showrunners of Dominion, Syfy’s upcoming supernatural drama based on the 2010 movie Legion.

The pair have a long-running partnership, both with each other and with Syfy and Universal Cable Productions. After working as consulting producers on the first season of Defiance, the pair are Executive Producers and writers on the upcoming second season. They were also consulting producers on the second season of Alphas, Syfy’s short-lived but brilliant original series. Personally, the two have been friends since the sixth grade – talk about a lasting friendship!

They join an already-impressive Dominion roster, which includes Executive Producer Scott Stewart (who directed Legion), Michael Litvak and David Lancaster (producers of the original film), and Vaun Wilmott, who will be showrunning along with them.

Check out a blurb on Dominion below:

Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.

Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? I went into Legion not expecting to like it much, but I wound up absolutely loving it. I cannot wait to see how the universe is translated to the television. You can check out a quick teaser at Syfy’s website.

Dominion premieres on Syfy in June, 2014 and stars Christopher Egan (Kings), Tom Wisdom (300), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Alan Dale (Lost), Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Luke Allen-Gale (The Borgias).

Be sure to tune in and check it out!
