Star­gate duo craft a science fic­tion mys­tery that won’t soon be forgotten

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - News -

You wake up from suspended an­i­ma­tion. No mem­ory of who you are. No de­tails about how or why you are on a derelict ship. That’s the com­pelling con­cept driv­ing Syfy’s new space show, Dark Mat­ter. Based on the four- is­sue comic minis­eries of the same name by Star­gate SG- 1 writ­ers/ ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers Joseph Mal­lozzi and Paul Mul­lie, the in­ter­stel­lar saga finds the mem­o­ries of six crew mem­bers com­pletely erased. The nu­mer­i­cally- monikered am­ne­siac cast in­cludes One/ Jace Corso ( Marc Ben­david), Two/ Por­tia Lin ( Melissa O’Neil), Three/ Mar­cus Boone ( An­thony Lemke), Four/ Ryo Tet­suda ( Alex Mal­lari Jr), Five/ Das ( Jodelle Fer­land) and Six/ Grif­fin Jones ( Roger Cross). At­tempt­ing to fill in the blanks, the group ride the ship to its pre­set des­ti­na­tion. How­ever, upon ar­riv­ing at a min­ing colony, the crew make a star­tling dis­cov­ery about them­selves…

Through sea­son one’s 13 episodes, the team must strug­gle with the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of this bomb­shell, de­cide whether their past dic­tates who they are in the present, and dis­cover who is re­spon­si­ble for wip­ing their minds. Sci- fi mae­stros Mal­lozzi and Mul­lie will be serv­ing as ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers, along with Prodigy Pic­tures’ Jay Fire­stone.
