New York, NY � February 20, 2009 � SCI FI's newest original series Warehouse 13 has begun production in Toronto starring Eddie McClintock (Bones, Desperate Housewives), Joanne Kelly (The Dresden Files, Vanished) and Saul Rubinek (Blind Justice, Frasier). This new one-hour dramedy from Universal Cable Productions is slated to premiere in July 2009 with 11 episodes including the previously produced two hour pilot.

After saving the life of the President, two Secret Service agents find themselves abruptly transferred to Warehouse 13 -- a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse's caretaker Artie (Rubinek) charges Pete (McClintock) and Myka (Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself.

McClintock plays Pete Lattimer, a handsome, athletic Secret Service Agent who's impulsive, intuitive nature often leads him to leap before he looks. There is hardly a situation so dire to which he can't find the lighter side.

Kelly portrays Secret Service Agent Myka Bering, a woman born to be an agent. Organized and focused, she believes in hard work, solid planning and steadfast execution. Needless to say, it is an approach that causes conflict with Pete's off-the-cuff style.

Rubinek is Artie Nielsen, a long-time Secret Service Agent who is in charge of Warehouse 13. Enthusiastic about his work, and made a bit "eccentric" by his long tenure in the isolated warehouse, Artie is happy to have Pete and Myka join him in the pursuit of objects that "threaten to ruin the world's day."

And CCH Pounder (The Shield), who appeared in the pilot, returns in a guest-starring role as Artie's boss, Mrs. Frederic. Her overshadowing and enigmatic presence directs the team's ongoing missions to contain the peculiar, dangerous and threatening objects that must be secured at any cost.

Warehouse 13 comes from Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) who also serves as showrunner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice, Rescue Me) is co-executive producer and director; and Stephen Surjik (Monk, Burn Notice) is producer/director.
