SYFY AND UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCE START OF PRODUCTION FOR "HUNTERS"

SERIES STARS NATHAN PHILLIPS (WOLF CREEK), BRITNE OLDFORD (AMERICAN HORROR STORY) AND JULIAN MCMAHON (NIP/TUCK)

GALE ANNE HURD (THE WALKING DEAD) AND NATALIE CHAIDEZ (12 MONKEYS) TO EXECUTIVE PRODUCE 13-PART DRAMA, SET TO PREMIERE ON SYFY IN 2016

NEW YORK - August 3, 2015 - Syfy and Universal Cable Productions (UCP) today announced that production has commenced in Melbourne, Australia on the upcoming thriller series Hunters. The series is from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator Trilogy) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys, Heroes), who will also serve as showrunner, and Emile Levisetti (Royal Pains). Ernest Dickerson (The Walking Dead, Dexter) is set to direct the pilot.

The series stars Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife. Britne Oldford (American Horror Story) will play Regan, who is one of the government's most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own. Julian McMahon portrays McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader.

Hunters is inspired by Whitley Strieber's best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, in which the disappearance of a decorated FBI agent's wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists - shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world. The series will be tonally dark and offer a unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller.

The 13-part series from Universal Cable Productions will premiere on Syfy in 2016.

Hunters joins other high profile upcoming Syfy originals, including the December 2015 premieres of epic space drama The Expanse, starring Thomas Jane, Steven Strait and Shohreh Aghdashloo; Childhood's End, the first-ever adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's iconic novel starring Charles Dance, Mike Vogel and Julian McMahon; and The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman's best-selling books and set to premiere in 2016. Childhood's End and The Magicians are both from Universal Cable Productions.
