Syfy Channel logo TV newsThe Syfy channel went hog wild at their upfronts on Wednesday, April 10th, 2o13.

First, they mention the renewals of Ghost Mine and Being Human.

Then they announce a bucketload of new sci-fi series, the production of High Moon from Bryan Fuller.

They tease about a few quarterly multimedia events like Ringworld, Helix, Dominion, Unbreakable and Oppositie Worlds.

Syfy is also working on two classic sci-fi novels that are being made into miniseries: Larry Nivens Ringworld and Arthur C. Clarkes Childhoods End.

They’re also working on developing new projects like Clandestine, Dominion, Orion, Sojourn, Shelter, Infinity, & Silver Shields.

And a few more reality TV series, with one of them with Joe Rogan.

And let’s not forget a Jamie Foxx horror anthology slated for Halloween of 2013!

Syfy is tackling a bunch of new upcoming Sci-Fi series. Way back when Syfy president Dave Howe came on board the network some years back, he came from the BBC, where he got that network on its feet. When he came on board Syfy, he said he would build up the brand, to do what was necessary to get the network on the board with the big names, and then look at broaching more sci-fi. If I remember correctly, it was something about having enough money to tackle new projects that were the core of what the network was about.

As the network stood, the ratings weren’t high enough to keep things going. He heralded the Syfy online experiences and we saw a heavier slate of reality TV show up afterwards.

But now the network has the monies to invest in new projects, and like Howe said several years back, once they get the funding, they can start investing in new content. And it looks like he’s kept to his word after a long, slow road to this moment.

That’s cool.

With that said, below are the huge collective of press releases! Gads, it’s a chunk of stuff so pick and choose, scroll slowly… there’s more there than I mentioned above… or use your web browsers search function ‘Ctrl-F’ to find what you’re looking for! There are a bunch of releases and I’ve split them up so you can see where one ends and another begins.
