Syfy’s Helix (Fridays, 10/9C) started out as an outbreak show – some kind of new virus struck members of an isolated research lab above the Arctic Circle and the CDC sent in a crack team to contain and cure it. Since then it has evolved – much like a virus does – into something similar but not quite the same. Now there are elements that suggest all manner of strangeness and, with this week’s new episode, Survivor One, there are new players and more layers coming to light.
Everyone’s favorite Borg has signed on for a multi-episode arc on Syfy’s much-anticipated new series, Helix. Jeri Ryan will play Constance Sutton, the COO of Ilaria Corporation, owner of Arctic Biosystems – the research facility where the series takes place.

The Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series reintroduced the characters of the hit video game, and two prior movies, to a huge audience (60 million views). That was more than enough to earn a second season – the trailer for which premiered online during the Streamy Awards.
To its already high-powered cast – Michael Jai White (Jax), Jeri Ryan (Sonya Blade), Tahmoh Penikett (Lt. Kurtis Stryker) – Mortal Kombat: Legacy II adds Marc Decascos (Kung Lao), Cary Hiroyiki-Tagawa (as Shang Tsung, reprising his role in the movies), Casper Van Diem (as Johnny Cage) and more.
As for a release date, all the trailer says is that Mortal Kombat: Legacy II is ‘Koming Soon.’

Throughout its thrilling third season, Syfy’s Warehouse 13 has taken viewers on surprising twists and turns, from the return of Myka (Joanne Kelly), the introduction of new Agent Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) and guest stars such as Jeri Ryan, Jaime Murray, Lindsay Wagner and Kate Mulgrew to nefarious villains like Anthony Michael Hall and Sasha Roiz threatening the survival of the Warehouse – and the world. To conclude this powerful year, Syfy will present its first ever, explosive two-hour Warehouse 13 season finale on Monday, October 3 from 9-11PM (ET/PT).
The premiere of ABC’s new series, Body of Proof [Tuesdays, 10/9C], presents as a procedural in which a crusty former neurosurgeon becomes a crusader medical examiner – a female Quincy, so to speak, but with fewer social graces and more intrusiveness. The situations which come up in the pilot are ludicrous but Delaney’s presence and will render them as acceptable as any forensic anthropologist teamed up with an FBI agent, or mystery novelist teamed up with a crack homicide detective.
Mortal Kombat was one of the very few movie adaptations of a videogame to actually work. No surprise then, that the franchise is making a comeback – the surprise is that it will be a web series starring Michael Jai White [Spawn, Black Dynamite] and Jeri Ryan [Star Trek Voyager, Dark Skies], according to a report by ew.com’s Darren Franich.
An even bigger surprise is that White and Ryan will be reprising the roles they played in the above video – a kind of unofficial test reel written and directed by Kevin Tancharoen, who will be working on the series.
Shooting for Mortal Kombat is underway for a premiere somewhere around the time of the new Mortal Kombat game.
When ABC presented its fall 2010 schedule, it was a major disappointment that Body of Proof, starring Dana Delaney as a brilliant neurosurgeon turned Medical Examiner hadn’t been included. The series had had incredible buzz and Delaney had a strong following from her time on Desperate Housewives and other projects dating all the way back to China Beach.
Today, ABC announced that Body of Proof will premiere on March 29, 2011. The press release follows the jump.
