Neverland -- Sunday, December 4 at 9PM & Monday, December 5 at 9PM (ET/PT) - This original prequel to author J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan sweeps in time from the turbulent seas of the pirates of the Caribbean and the back alleys of Dickensian London to a world of pure imagination. The film stars Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man) as James Hook, Oscar nominee Keira Knightley as the voice of Tinker Bell, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee (who previously played the character in Steven Spielberg's feature Hook), Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man) and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as one of literature's most cherished characters, Peter Pan. Neverland is produced by Dublin-based Parallel Films on behalf of MNG Films, in association with Syfy and Sky Movies HD, and will be distributed by RHI Entertainment.

Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Haven - Tuesday, December 6 from 8-11PM - Syfy's scripted series get into the spirit of the season with Eureka's first ever animated episode including guest star Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) at 8PM, Warehouse 13's "It's a Wonderful Life" homage at 9PM, and a Christmas fantasy which makes the residents of Haven disappear, one by one, airing at 10PM.

Ghost Hunters - Wednesday, December 7 at 9PM - Jason and Grant hunt for the ghosts of Christmas past in this special holiday edition.

Saturday Original Movie Snowmageddon - Saturday, December 10 at 9PM - Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica) David Cubitt (Medium) and Magda Apanowicz (Caprica) star in the story about a mystical snow globe that makes very bad things happen in the real world when it is shaken.

SYFY WILL RING IN THE CHRISTMAS SEASON WITH STAND-ALONE HOLIDAY EPISODES OF EUREKA, WAREHOUSE 13 AND HAVEN TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6 FROM 8-11PM AS PART OF SECOND ANNUAL COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS WEEK

ORLANDO -- October 10, 2011 - For the second straight Christmas season, Syfy will present special, stand-alone holiday episodes of its hit scripted series Eureka, Warehouse 13 -- and for the first time -- Haven.

The episodes will premiere Tuesday, December 6 from 8-11PM (Eureka at 8PM, Warehouse 13 at 9PM and Haven at 10PM) during Syfy's second annual Countdown to Christmas Week.

In Eureka's "Do You See What I See," the quaint town of geniuses is transformed into animated versions of themselves. Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) are secretly planning the perfect holiday surprise for their kids. But a mysterious kaleidoscopic wave of color crashes over Eureka, leaving the entire town and its inhabitants animated. Leading production and entertainment company Curious Pictures will produce the animation featured in the episode, which will be broken up into different styles including Anime, claymation, animation inspired by the Looney Tunes cartoons and modern cg. The episode features a stellar line up of guest stars lending their voices to a variety of characters, including Emmy Award-winner Jim Parsons, Edward James Olmos, Chris Parnell and Matt Frewer.

In Warehouse 13's "The Greatest Gift," Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) is hit in the head by an artifact and wakes up to a life where he was never born. Pete must hunt down and persuade the Warehouse team (none of whom recognize him) to go on this life or death mission with him to vanquish a long dead nemesis from the past to get everyone's lives back. This episode takes a page from It's a Wonderful Life and The Greatest Gift, which is the short story on which the iconic movie was based. As he did last year, showrunner Jack Kenny directed the holiday episode.

In Haven's "Silent Night," Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) begins seeing Christmas decorations mysteriously popping up all over Haven in the middle of July yet nobody else, including Nathan (Lucas Bryant), seem to feel anything is unusual. Yet, when Haven residents start disappearing into thin air, Audrey convinces Nathan they must find a way to stop it.

Eureka and Warehouse 13 are produced by Universal Cable Productions.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd, and is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).
