TELEVISION: Haven – Syfy’s Excursion into Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid – Is In Production!


Syfy’s new series, Haven may have sprung from the mind of Stephen King, but its premiere episode [due to run at 9/8C, July 9, 2010] is being shepherded to the small screen by Adam Kane [The Mentalist, Heroes, Pushing Daisies]. Details from the press release follow the jump.

Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters), commenced production on April 20 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and its surrounding area.  Based on King’s novella The Colorado Kid, the series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) with a lost past who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case.  Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.

As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven – including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.  Among the citizens who cross Audrey’s path along the way are local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), who eventually becomes Audrey’s partner, and the mysterious and charming Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour).
