Syfy’s Defiance Debuts in Asia Today!

For those of you whom don’t have Cable TV at home, you might be wondering what exactly is Syfy because I have exactly the same question before coming to know what Syfy is. Even then, there were a handful of people whom have Cable TV at home but didn’t know about Syfy‘s existence as well.

Syfy was originally launched in 1992 as a SCI FI Channel and it is currently a media destination for imagination-based entertainment which does not limits itself to science fiction but also fantasy, paranormal, and adventure too. In Singapore, Syfy is available on Starhub Cable TV [Channel 526].

So now that you know what Syfy is, let’s go on to talk about Defiance, a 12-episode science fiction series that takes an unprecedented approach to storytelling by uniting scripted television and online gaming.

Here we were at the Screening Room last week for an exclusive preview screening of Defiance‘s 1st episode.

What is the Defiance Series about?

Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth where its landscapes are permanently altered following the sudden and tumultuous arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully.

What’s so special about the Defiance Series?
Five years in the making and with a budget of US$40 million for the first season, Defiance is Syfy’s biggest and most ambitious undertaking in its 20 year history. One unique thing about Defiance is that it takes an unprecedented approach to storytelling, uniting scripted television and online gaming for the very first time. This means that the weekly drama will have an impact on the game and gamers can actually have the opportunity to change the show as well.

There are in total 12 episodes [13 hours] with the first episode being 2-hours long.
