Syfy has officially committed to Dominion and will debut the dramatic series in 2014. The series, filmed in South Africa, is based on the characters from the 2010 horror/fantasy film Legion starring Paul Bettany and Tyrese Gibson. Legion director Scott Stewart directed Dominion‘s pilot and is an executive producer on the series along with Michel Litvak, David Lancaster, and Vaun Wilmott.
The cast includes Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Alan Dale, Anthony Stewart Head, and Luke Allen-Gale.
“Following the critical success of Defiance and the upcoming Ron Moore thriller Helix, Dominion will be the next major addition to Syfy’s growing slate of high quality scripted series,” stated Syfy President, Dave Howe. “Dominion will continue Syfy’s new strategy to commission stand-out genre series that deliver the high stakes, sci-fi/fantasy experience our audience demands and embraces.”
The Plot:
Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post-apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.
