Syfy says filming has now begun on the new science fiction series Hunters from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Emile Levisetti (Royal Pains), and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys). Chaidez is the showrunner and The Walking Dead‘s Ernest Dickerson is directing episode one.
Hunters will star Nathan Phillips, Britne Oldford, and Julian McMahon. The series will consist of 13 episodes and will premiere sometime in 2016.
Hunters is inspired by Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, in which the disappearance of a decorated FBI agent’s wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists – shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world. The series will be tonally dark and offer a unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller.
The series stars Nathan Phillips as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife. Britne Oldford will play Regan, who is one of the government’s most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own. Julian McMahon portrays McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader.
