Series follows a veteran robbed by his own clone

Syfy is developing the new drama series “Clone,” from “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman and executive producer David Alpert.

Based on the bestselling graphic novel by David Schulner, “Clone” follows a retired soldier, Luke Taylor, who discovers a man who burglarized his home is a clone of himself. He is drawn into a vast government conspiracy when his wife is kidnapped, and must use his combat skills and military contacts to uncover a secret biotech program.
