SYFY ACQUIRES HIT NEW ZEALAND ORIGINAL SERIES "THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS" FROM ALL3MEDIA INTERNATIONAL

THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS - ABOUT FOUR BROTHERS WITH THE POWERS OF NORSE GODS - WILL PREMIERE IN 2014

NEW YORK - August 13, 2013 -- Expanding its stable of international hits such as Lost Girl and Continuum, Syfy today announced it has acquired the first two seasons (23 episodes) of the popular New Zealand scripted series The Almighty Johnsons from independent television distributor ALL3MEDIA International.

The Almighty Johnsons is a production of South Pacific Pictures.

Season 1 of The Almighty Johnsons, consisting of 10 episodes, will premiere on Syfy in 2014.

The action-packed comedy drama The Almighty Johnsons follows the Johnson boys, four typical fun-loving guys - who have inherited the power of Norse Gods. But these four brothers are no flashy superheroes. Everyday Gods have everyday struggles - searching for love, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling their God-like destiny - while still enjoying a few beers with their mates.

Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Programming, Syfy, said: "We're delighted to introduce quality New Zealand programming to the Syfy audience. A compelling blend of fantasy and comedy, this quirky series should resonate strongly with our viewers."

Kelly Martin, CEO, South Pacific Pictures, said: "We are thrilled with the deal that ALL3MEDIA International has done. The Almighty Johnsons will be the first wholly New Zealand originated and produced drama series to be broadcast in the United States, which is a terrific accomplishment and reflects the quality of the series."

Louise Pedersen, Managing Director, ALL3MEDIA International, added: "This acquisition by an influential market such as the United States will be fantastic for the profile of The Almighty Johnsons and New Zealand drama on the global stage."

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 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. NBCUniversal is owned by Comcast Corporation.(Syfy. Imagine greater.)
