SYFY, BRYAN SINGER/BAD HAT HARRY PRODUCTIONS AND UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS DEVELOPING 90-MINUTE PILOT SCRIPT "CREATURE AT BAY"

New York - September 20, 2013 - Syfy is teaming up with Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and his Bad Hat Harry Productions to develop a 90-minute pilot script titled Creature at Bay. Singer and Bad Hat's Jason Taylor will Executive Produce and Creator/Writer John Cabrera will be Co-Executive Producer. The project is from Universal Cable Productions.

In the wake of the US military taking down a giant, rampant creature - a modern-day "Kaiju" monster - just off the Northern California coast, a middle-management Undersecretary from the California Emergency Management Agency is charged with leading the clean-up efforts as the small town becomes the focus of the entire world.

John Cabrera gained notoriety by co-creating and co-writing the award winning sci-fi digital series H+ for Warner Brothers, also produced by Bryan Singer, which premiered on YouTube in 2012. The popular series is currently in pre-production on its second season.

Bad Hat Harry Productions is the production company of acclaimed director and producer Bryan Singer, established in 1994. Up next for the company is X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, which is currently in post-production with Singer at the helm, set for a May 23, 2014 release by Fox. Previous films include: JACK THE GIANT SLAYER, UWANTME2KILLHIM?, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, VALKYRIE, SUPERMAN RETURNS, X-2, X-MEN, APT PUPIL and THE USUAL SUSPECTS. In television, Bad Hat Harry produced the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) winning House MD, which ran for 8 seasons on Fox, and the acclaimed series Dirty Sexy Money on ABC. Additionally, the company produced the documentary Look, Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman, the Syfy miniseries The Triangle, the genre film festival favourite Trick 'r Treat, and the digital series H+ for Warner Brothers. Upcoming for Bad Hat Harry in television is The Black Box, a straight to series order at ABC, which will premiere in 2014, and they are also developing a reboot/revival of the beloved show The Twilight Zone with CBS TV studios.

Universal Cable Productions creates innovative and critically acclaimed original scripted and digital content across multiple media platforms and outlets for domestic and international distribution. UCP produces "Covert Affairs," "Psych," "Royal Pains" and "Suits" for USA; "Defiance," and "Warehouse 13" for Syfy and "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" for distribution on Machinima Prime/YouTube, Syfy and DVD/Blu-Ray. Universal Cable Productions is a division of NBCUniversal.
