SYFY VIDEO: "Alphas" New Series Promo Trailer - Premieres Summer 2011
This summer five extraordinary people become one extraordinary team. Alphas premiering Summer 2011.
From the writer of X-Men: The Last Stand and starring Academy Award nominee David Strathairn!
Syfy enters the world of super heroes with Alphas, a new show from the mind of X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk writer Zak Penn and starring acclaimed actor and Academy Award nominee David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck). The Alphas pilot, directed by Lost veteran Jack Bender, introduces us to a team of ordinary citizens whose brain anomalies imbue them with extraordinary mental and physical abilities. Taking the law into their own hands, the unlikely group, led by Dr. Lee Rosen (Strathairn), investigates cases that suggest other Alpha activity to uncover what the CIA, FBI and Pentagon have not been able, or willing, to solve. These gifted individuals must balance their quirky personalities and disparate backgrounds with their not always visible powers as they work to solve crimes, stop the ticking time bomb and save the world.
Joining Strathairn in the cast are faces both new and familiar, including Warren Christie (October Road), Malik Yoba (New York Undercover), Laura Mennell (Watchmen), Ryan Cartwright (Bones) and Azita Ghanizada (Castle). Battlestar Galactica's Callum Keith Rennie guest stars in the pilot.
Alphas will premiere on Syfy in the summer of 2011.
