Syfy today announced it has greenlit to pilot the original sci-fi thriller PROTOTYPE, written by Tony Basgallop (“24: Live Another Day”). PROTOTYPE centers on three unlikely cohorts who inadvertently stumble upon an invention that challenges the very nature of quantum physics – a discovery which in turn puts their lives in grave danger.
“PROTOTYPE is a purely original idea from a talented writer with a unique vision,” said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see this original idea come to life in this pilot for Syfy.”
Oscar nominee Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“Esposados”) will direct. Escape Artists Productions (“Southpaw,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”) will serve as executive producers along with Fresnadillo and Basgallop. Taylor Latham (“Freeheld”) will be co-executive producer.
