SYFY GETS "CAMERA READY"
NEW YORK - August 21, 2013 - Syfy is expanding its growing slate of reality programming with Camera Ready, an all-new competition reality series from Mission Control Media (Face Off) now in development.
On Camera Ready, ten visionary costume designers will stretch imagination and artistry by competing in challenges to create works of costume art for film, television and music videos. Each week, the contestants will realize fantastical characters through their dazzling costume creations, incorporating non-traditional materials and technology - such as fiber optics - into some pieces. The contestants will be judged by a panel of industry heavy-weights - from Oscar-winning costume designers, cutting-edge directors and avant-garde fashionistas - with one designer ultimately taking home the $100,000 grand prize.
Dwight D. Smith, Michael Agbabian and Derek Atherton serve as executive producers.
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. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
