New Series Will Premiere After Face Off Season Two Finale and Will Return to its Regular Timeslot -- Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT -- Beginning March 21

NEW YORK - January 11, 2012 - Syfy will premiere its latest original docuseries Monster Man on Wednesday, March 14 at 11PM (ET/PT), immediately following the second season finale of Face Off at 10 PM (ET/PT). Monster Man will return to its regular timeslot, Wednesdays at 10 PM (ET/PT), the following week on March 21.

Monster Man goes behind the scenes of one of Hollywood's most respected practical effects workshops. For more than thirty years, when studios want a bizarre creature or out-of-this world alien, they turn to Cleve Hall and the team at SOTA FX. Only the horrifying monsters they build match the craziness of this extremely talented family.

In the premiere episode, "Seeing Double," viewers will be introduced to the very colorful cast of characters from SOTA FX, as Cleve and the team face a dual challenge. First famed "Friday the 13th" director Sean Cunningham demands that Cleve and company conjure up conjoined twins that tear apart for his next feature film. If building this complex appliance for an A-lister isn't enough, creature feature makers at The Asylum ask Cleve to build a terrorizing two-headed shark - and how does Cleve find inspiration for a two-headed shark? Well, by literally swimming in shark-infested waters.

Monster Man stars Cleve Hall, his daughters Constance and Elora Hall, his ex-wife Sonja Maddox-Hall, his best friends Roy Knyrim and Johnny Saiko and office manager Cindy Miller.

Executive Producers are Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney for Gurney Productions.
