Back in July the SyFy Channel greenlit the fantasy horror series Dominion for a pilot episode, and now the series has been ordered to a full series. The story follows on from the events of the Paul Bettany starring movie, Legion.

“Following the critical success of ‘Defiance’ and the upcoming Ron Moore thriller ‘Helix,’ ‘Dominion’ will be the next major addition to Syfy’s growing slate of high quality scripted series,” said Syfy President Dave Howe in making the announcement. “‘Dominion’ will continue Syfy’s new strategy to commission stand-out genre series that deliver the high stakes, sci-fi/fantasy experience our audience demands and embraces.”

Synopsis:

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.

“Dominion” 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”).

Scott Stewart, who co-wrote and directed Legion, directed the pilot and is one of the project’s executive producers. Michel Litvak and David Lancaster of Bold Films, who produced the film Legion, are also executive producers. Vaun Wilmott wrote the pilot and will also serve as executive producer on the series.

Film Afrika serves as the local production entity in South Africa.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
