Syfy’s ‘Hunters’ Begins Production


Syfy has officially begun production for its new series Hunters.

The 13-part series is inspired by Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, and tells the story of the how the disappearance of a decorated Philadelphia cop’s wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists – shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.

Starring in the unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller are newcomer Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife; Britne Oldford (American Horror Story) as Regan, one of the government’s most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own; and Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) who will portray McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader.

The series hails from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator Trilogy), Emile Levisetti (Royal Pains) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys, Heroes), who will also serve as showrunner. Ernest Dickerson (The Walking Dead, Dexter) is set to direct the pilot.

Look out for Hunters to premiere on Syfy in 2016.
