Syfy UK has released the first trailer for their newest acquisition 12 Monkeys.
Penned by Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett, 12 Monkeys tells the story of a time traveller from a decimated future in a high-stakes race against the clock. Utilizing a dangerous and untested method of time travel, he journeys from 2043 to the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will all but annihilate the human race.
The series, which is based on the feature film of the same name, was ordered by the US Syfy network back in April as part of their aggressive push back into scripted drama, which has seen them green-light such series as Dominion, Ascension and The Expanse.
It is produced by Universal Cable Productions and stars Aaron Stanford (Nikita), Amanda Schull (Pretty Little Liars), Noah Bean (Damages) and Kirk Acevedo (Fringe). Syfy UK acquired the series in December, after agreeing a deal with NBCUniversal International Television Distribution.
Check out the trailer below:
12 Monkeys is set to premiere on Syfy UK on Friday February 27th at 9pm.
