Syfy has greenlit David S. Goyer’s Superman prequel Krypton and Christopher Meloni vehicle Happy! to series – and is developing George R.R. Martin’s science fiction novella Nightflyers.

Happy! follows corrupt alcoholic cop turned hitman Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) as a job goes horribly wrong and he is joined by ‘a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy’ – that only he can see.

After Los Angeles’ last good cop (Alan Ritchson) is forced to join a twisted cross-country death race, his only hope of survival is a dangerous femme fatale who has the need for speed (Christina Ochoa).

Oh, and forget gasoline… these cars run on human blood!

The penultimate episode of The Magicians: Season Two (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) finds Eliot banished from Fillory; Quentin and Julia have broken Alice’s shade out of Underworld; Josh found himself high-fiving an Eliot who was suddenly not there); King Idri and a good many Fillorians are rats, and Senator Gaines has reached his limit with his dad.

In other words, same stuff, different day.

Syfy Unveils Summer 2017 Schedule!

Syfy has unveiled its Summer 2017 schedule and there’s only one new series (but it sounds very Roger Corman-esque). Also included: one movie, one returning unscripted series and four returning dramas – plus a return to Comic-Con for more and thorough coverage of Nerd Prom (trust me, I’m a nerd…)

The new series, blood Drive, is about the last good cop being forced into a cross country race in which the cars are fueled with human blood (very Roger Corman, right?).

The new movie is (wait for it…) Sharknado 5; the returning unscripted series is Face Off (possibly my favorite unscripted series ever).

Back for more are: 12 Monkeys (10 episodes over three nights), Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp (actually better than the graphic novel that spawned), and Killjoys.

The Magicians (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) has been a revelation in its second season. The writing, directing and performance have all reached a higher level (and the first season was pretty fine).

The characters are more nuanced; the world is deeper and even more intriguing.
