SYFY NAMES SCOTT VILA (24, DARK ANGEL, FIREFLY) TO NEWLY CREATED POSITION OF VICE PRESIDENT, CURRENT PROGRAMMING, SCRIPTED

NEW YORK - June 1, 2011 - Syfy has named Scott Vila, who was instrumental in the development of water cooler hits such as 24, Dark Angel and Firefly, to the newly created position of Vice President, Current Programming, Scripted. Based in the Los Angeles office, Vila will report to Erik Storey, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Syfy.

Vila will be responsible for Warehouse 13, the network's highest rated show, as well as two of the network's sophomore hits, Haven and Being Human.

Mark Stern, President, Original Content, Syfy, and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions, said: "Throughout his career, Scott has consistently developed quality television. His diverse strengths, from targeting compelling stories to overseeing successful execution, will contribute immeasurably to the growth of Syfy's scripted programming."

Before joining Syfy, Vila was Vice President, Original Programming, A&E, since 2006, where he was responsible for the development of series including The Glades, The Beast and The Cleaner. Prior to that, he served as executive producer for NBC's Medical Investigation (2003-05) and producer of Fox's The Simple Life (2002-03).

During his three year tenure (1999-02) as Senior Vice President, Drama, Twentieth Century Fox Television, he worked on an array of top series such as 24, Dark Angel, The Practice, Boston Public, American High and Judging Amy.

Vila was graduated with an MBA in Business Administration from Harvard Business School.

On July 11, Syfy will launch its new three-hour Monday night scripted programming block featuring returning powerhouses Eureka (8PM) and Warehouse 13 (9PM), followed by the premiere of Alphas (10PM). Later that week, Haven will return for its second season on Friday, July 15 (10PM).

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in more than 99 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy.
