More and more studios and networks have been turning to video games to find fodder for movies and television series that will appeal to the ‘synth world’ generation. So it’s no surprise that The Syfy Channel has begun production on a ‘back door pilot’ for a new television series based on the video game, Red Faction.
According to Alan Seiffert of Syfy, “It is the kind of content that fits our genre, it is a great fit for a big Syfy Saturday movie, and if it really works, it is a great back-door pilot.” Seiffert also believes that there is plenty of room for SyFy to expand its relationship with the Red Faction video game even further.
THQ’s, which produces the Red Faction video games agrees with Syfy. THQ Core VP, Danny Bilson has stated that the Red Faction TV film is part of “the most robust trans-media plays anybody’s ever seen in the games business.”
Red Faction: Origins began principle production on January 17, 2011 and stars Robert Patrick and Brian J. Smith. SyFy has set a tentative air date as sometime in March, 2011.
As The Unit [CBS, Sundays, 10/9C] wraps up its latest mission overseas – with the help of an undercover female soldier [pictured below] – their wives are told to drop every connection they have to their everyday lives, send their kids off to distant relatives and repair to an unknown location.
The fourth season of The Unit, Sacrifice, finds the team attempting to thwart a terrorist attempt to assassinate the President-Elect Benjamin Castillo [Benito Martinez] – a task made more difficult because the men attempting the assassination are dressed in proper military garb and know the codes of the day.
Written by the show’s Co-Executive Producer, Frank Military, and directed by the show’s creator, David Mamet, Sacrifice is the show’s best season premiere since the first one. Military’s script is smart and manages to create an arc that allows The Unit and their families to become – in an unexpected way – connected, story-wise. With the seeming uprooting of the families, and a terrorist organization that has the funding and training to attack the United States President, Vice-President, President-Elect and Vice-President-Elect, this first part of a two-parter pretty much cooks from beginning to end.
And that unofficial rule that “The Unit has no women?” It appears that the knowledge of that rule may have given the team an unexpected advantage as they track down the group behind the assassination attempts. Between that twist and the upheaval in the lives of The Unit’s families, the show’s creative team is showing that they have no plans to let the series get stale.
I just wish my screener had both eps. I hate cliffhangers! Seriously!
