Syfy Starts Work on Hackers Series

Syfy and Relativity Television are working on a new – and timely – unscripted series about real-life hackers. Hackers will take viewers inside the world of high-tech hackers, and each episode will feature stories taken from the headlines.

Tom Forman and Brad Bishop are executive producing the series.

The Plot:

Hackers will reveal the secrets behind the most infamous cyber-crimes ever committed, using sophisticated, never-before-seen digital graphics to create an experiential “hacking” scene that exposes what actually happens when a computer network is broken into – including what goes on inside the mind of the hacker.

Each episode of Hackers will unveil the true stories — ripped from the headlines — of real-life hackers who turned entire industries upside down, featuring interviews with both the actual perpetrators and the law enforcement agents who tracked them down.

The episodes will include profiles and professional secrets of the hacker, who will reveal how they committed the crime, from trolling the Internet to rooting out vulnerabilities inside the company websites.
