Syfy is again partnering up with Canadian producers fo ra new series, this time with Wynonna Earp, based on the comic of the same name from the early 2000’s created by Beau Smith. Originally published at Image Comics but now at IDW Publishing, the production is set to be a thirteen episode series with Melanie Scrofano as the lead. The show will feature Tim Rozon as doc Holliday and Shamier Anderson as Agent Dolls. The series, set to start production in September in Calgary, is scheduled to premiere in April 2016.
Plot concept: Redneck, trailer trash, drug-running vampires, bounty-hunting biker werewolves, immortal desperadoes, an ancient mummy hitman and the Egyptian Mafia: these are the kinds of perpetrators that covert U.S. Marshal Wynonna Earp hunts down on a regular basis. Created by writer Beau Smith, Wynonna Earp is the descendant of the famous lawman Wyatt Earp. As a member of the so-called “Halloween Hunters” or “Freak Finders,” she does what comes supernatural… she brings the unnatural to justice. If there’s a monster committing crime in your neighborhood, then she’ll be there to bag and tag ’em. His legend. Her legacy. their law. Wynonna Earp is a quirky, head-busting mixture of action/adventure/sci-fi/dark humor.
