“Brothers & Sisters” alum Luke MacFarlane, Hannah John-Kamen and Aaron Ashmore have been cast as the leads in Syfy’s newest scripted series “Killjoys,” the cable network announced Tuesday.
From Temple Street Productions, the producers of “Orphan Black,” and Michelle Lovretta, the creator of “Lost Girl” who also serves as writer and showrunner, “Killjoys” follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war.
Chris Grismer (“Vampire Diaries”) will direct the pilot and additional episodes. The 10-episode, one-hour series will begin production in Toronto on Aug. 5 and will premiere on Syfy in 2015. It will also debut simultaneously in Canada on Space.
