Warehouse 13

In the first season finale, MacPherson (Roger Rees) did more to Warehouse 13 than just blow up Artie (Saul Rubinek). He may have unleashed something into the world that Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) don't even know how to deal with, much less stop.

During its first season, Warehouse 13 became the all-time Syfy leader in total viewers (4.1 million), Adults 25-54 (2.1 million) and Household ratings (2.9), based on Live+7 DVR data.

Warehouse 13 follows two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse's caretaker Artie (Rubinek) charges Agents Pete Lattimer (McClintock) and Myka Bering (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. Allison Scagliotti plays Claudia, Artie's apprentice.

Season two features special crossover episodes when Warehouse 13's Allison Scagliotti visits the town of Eureka and Neil Grayston of Eureka visits Warehouse 13. The programs will air on Warehouse 13 Tuesday, August 3, and on Eureka Friday, August 6.

Warehouse 13 season two guest stars include Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman), Tia Carrere (Wayne's World), Jewel Staite and Sean Maher (both from Firefly), Neil Graystone (Eureka), Rene Auberjonois (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Paula Garces (Defying Gravity), David Anders (Heroes, 24), Faran Tahir (Iron Man, Star Trek), Nolan Gerard Funk (Aliens in America), Philip Winchester (Crusoe) and as well as WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes (Friday Night SmackDown).

Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is Executive Producer and Showrunner.

Eureka

Hot off of its highest-rated and most watched season to date -- drawing 3 Million viewers per week -- Eureka, returns for its 4th season with exciting twists, a brand new cast member and a great line up of new and returning guest stars. Fans and newcomers won't want to miss this game-changing season when BIG changes alter everyone's lives after a cataclysmic time shift turns their world upside down.

James Callis (Battlestar Galactica's Dr. Gaius Baltar) joins the cast as physicist �Dr. Grant,� a former Eurekan whose very unexpected return is cause for great concern, and the reasons as to when and why he originally left Eureka are shrouded in mystery and secrecy. His arrival also causes considerable friction for Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) considering Grant's romantic interest in Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield).

Once again this season stars Colin Ferguson and Joe Morton will direct episodes. Salli Richardson-Whitfield makes her directorial debut as well. Special guest stars this season include Wil Wheaton, Jaime Ray Newman, Jamie Kennedy and Matt Frewer.

Eureka seems like any other cozy, Pacific Northwest town, but is actually a secret community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they've unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen... and does. The series stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston, Niall Matter, new cast member James Callis, and features Jordan Hinson. Co-creator Jaime Paglia and Bruce Miller are Executive Producers. The series is produced and distributed by Universal Cable Productions.

Haven

Based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King, Haven follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose), who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine to solve the murder of a local ex-con. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people with a remarkable range of supernatural abilities. Among the townspeople are local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), who eventually becomes Audrey's partner, and the mysterious and charming Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour).

The impressive creative team behind Haven includes showrunner Scott Shepherd (Tru Calling, The Dead Zone) who is joined by E1 Entertainment's John Morayniss (Hung, Copper) Noreen Halpern (Hung, Copper), Laszlo Barna (The Bridge) and Michael Rosenberg (Hung, The Riches) as well as his partners, Executive Producers Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller (The Dead Zone, Wildfire, Greek). The pilot is written by Sam Ernst (The Dead Zone) and Jim Dunn (The Dead Zone) who will also serve as executive producers on the series.

Haven, from E1 Entertainment in association with Pillar, Segan and Shepherd, will be the first property to be produced for Syfy in the US and Universal Networks International's pay TV channels around the globe (excluding Canada and Scandinavia). The series has been co-commissioned by Syfy and Universal Networks International with Canwest Broadcasting (Canada), with Showcase serving as the Canadian broadcaster. International distribution is handled by E1. Haven will launch internationally in October 2010.
