STAR-STUDDED PANELS FOR SYFY SERIES DEFIANCE, BEING HUMAN, WAREHOUSE 13, HAVEN AND HELIX

NEW YORK - July 15, 2013 - Following last year's dramatic success in introducing the hit series Defiance at Comic-Con, Syfy will use 2013 Comic-Con International (July 18-21) as the launch pad for its newest scripted series Helix. The new thriller about a mysterious outbreak at a desolate Arctic outpost from Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D. Moore will premiere on Syfy in January 2014.

As part of its innovative, multi-media marketing campaign for the series, Syfy will brandish a larger-than-life wrap showcasing Helix around the Marriott Marquis & Marina Hotel, adjacent to Comic-Con headquarters in the San Diego Convention Center.

In addition to introducing the Helix creative team during one of the channel's four star-studded show panels, Syfy will ask fans to retweet an image of the Helix Marriot Board, Like Facebook.com/Helix, and Follow @HelixSyfy to release clips of the Helix Comic-Con reel prior to the Comic-Con panel. Syfy will also feature panels for retuning original series Defiance, Being Human, Haven and Warehouse 13.

No matter what Comic-Con super fans are doing - dining out, walking around town or attending a panel - Syfy will encourage them to become part of the fun:

· For the second year in a row, Syfy will transform MaryJane's Café into Café Defiance. The immersive experience into the world of Defiance will feature video displays, social/interactive elements and game play. The popular Defiance game will be available for purchase. In between bites at Café Defiance, customers can win a Defiance prize package by tweeting Café photos using #DefianceSDCC. There will also photo opportunities for fans to have their picture taken with "Bioman," a character from the show.

· Two of the Dodge Chargers featured in Defiance will patrol the streets of San Diego, enticing participants to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Dodge Charger. Attendees can enter the sweepstakes by locating the vehicles and tweeting a picture of either car to #DodgeDefiance.

· On-site at the Being Human, Defiance, Warehouse 13 and Helix star-studded panels, attendees can tweet photos and quotes using the show-specific hashtags, giving them the opportunity to win signed t-shirts and DVDs from the four series.

· All social activity will be aggregated to Syfy.com/ComicCon so that those fans unable to attend in person can experience the excitement. All official and user-generated posts will be dynamically updated in real time all week long. Online fans can also tweet out the Syfy.com/ComicCon url to enter for a chance to win a Xbox 360.

Syfy will also serve as the title sponsor of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, the "Oscars" of the comic book industry, for the second consecutive year.
