Syfy has unveiled its Fall and Winter schedule – include premiere dates for its adaptation of Grant Morrision’s graphic novel series Happy! and Alan Tudyk’s web series Con Man.
Happy! follows ex-cop-turned-hitman Nick Sax, an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man — who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse.
Con Man follows the journey of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk), a washed-up, former sci-fi celebrity who revisits his glory days on the convention circuit.
Premiere dates were also set for season two of Channel Zero: No-End House, season four of Z Nation, season two of Van Helsing, Ghost Wars, superstition and Face Off spin-off Game Face.
