Take a Look at Syfy’s Alphas

A new Syfy thriller series about normal folks with extraordinary mental and physical abilities is coming to a television near you! If you think you’ve heard of that premise before, it’s not quite people with “superpowers” due to an eclipse, freak storm or any other kind of weather anomaly. Alphas are  part of a special branch of the government that  investigate cases committed by others with Alpha abilities.


Created by writer Zak Penn (X2, The Avengers) and Michael Karnow, directed by Jack Bender (Lost), and executively produced by Ira Steven Behr (The 4400, Deep Space Nine, Dark Angel) the show stars David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Warren Christie (October Road), Malik Yoba (New York Undercover), Laura Mennell (Watchmen), Ryan Cartwright  (Bones) and Azita Ghanizada (Castle). Callum Keith Rennie (Battlestar Galactica/24) guest stars in the pilot.


The clip is a sneak peek of how the team of Alphas come together and how each of them stretch the capabilities of the human mind. They don’t know they’re being brought in to be a part of what looks like a SWAT team to solve crimes, but their skills are harnessed and perfected by Dr. Rosen (Strathairn). Sounds a bit like the Company from Heroes but we’ll see soon enough when the show premieres on July 11th at 10PM EST/9PM CST.
