Today, Syfy announced casting for a new scripted series called Dark Matter, which will include Melissa O’Neil (Broadway production of Les Miserables), Marc Bendavid (Bitten), Anthony Lemke (White House Down), Alex Mallari Jr. (Robocop) and Jodelle Ferland (Twilight) with Roger Cross (The Strain) and Zoie Palmer (Lost Girl).
Yes, that’s right, we’re getting more Zoie Palmer here in the U.S. This is obviously a good enough reason to watch this series.
The series, based on the Dark Horse graphic novel of the same name, is a space drama (yay!) about a crew who awakens from stasis on a derelict spaceship with no idea of who they are or how they got there. While facing the threats of space travel, they also have to work together to survive.
Oh yeah, I’m in.
