First look at Syfy’s Sinbad series

First look at Syfy's Sinbad series

Could Syfy’s Sinbad be the break-out fun series of the summer?

Sinbad, the new series from Syfy, has been under my radar. But after looking at the official launch trailer (below), I have to admit that I am now intrigued. Of course, the casting of Naveen Andrews (Lost) as Lord Akbari, doesn’t hurt.

So what is this new series about?¬†After Sinbad (Elliot Knight) accidentally kills the son of powerful Lord Akbari (Andrews), he is forced to flee – under a curse – from his home town of Basra. Now unable to be on dry land for more than a day (thanks to the curse), Sinbad must travel the world to find a cure and return home. On board his new home – the ship, The Providence – an intriguing band of travelers is thrown together, including taciturn Norwegian sailor Gunnar (Elliot Cowan), the lithe and agile jewel-thief Rina (Marama Corlett), and haughty and aristocratic Nala (Estella Daniels). Completing the ship’s complement is the odd-ball cook and the cerebral doctor Anwar (Dmitri Leonidas).

It doesn’t sound half-bad, does it? Will you be watching?

Sinbad premieres on Syfy Saturday, June 8th at 9/8c.
