SYFY LAUNCHES ALL-NEW VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE FOR AWARD-WINNING "THE EXPANSE" VR APP

-- New Immersive Content Available Starting October 8; Google Cardboard Distributed at New York Comic Con --

NEW YORK- October 8, 2015 - Syfy has announced the launch of all-new content for its virtual reality app for The Expanse, the network's highly-anticipated drama series from Alcon Television Group premiering this December. The app immerses viewers into the vast world of The Expanse, giving them the opportunity to enter into locations from the show and experience them in virtual reality.

In a new scene debuting on October 8, viewers fly by The Expanse's Tycho Station, the largest mobile space platform in the solar system. Also seen in detail is The Nauvoo, a two kilometer long Mormon missionary ship currently under construction.

The release of this new virtual reality content will coincide with Syfy's screening of The Expanse at New York Comic-Con. Syfy will distribute Cardboard viewers to fans who attend the screening and Q&A on Thursday, October 8 at the Javits Center (4pm, Room 1A06).

"The Expanse VR" app - available for iOS and Android devices - was launched in July 2015 at San Diego Comic-Con with an experience that takes users on a 360-degree tour of the spaceship Canterbury (the massive ice freighter introduced in the first episode of The Expanse). Since launch, the app has already received several honors, winning Silver at the 2015 W3 awards in the following categories: Television - Innovative/Experimental and Entertainment - Innovative/Experimental.

Conceived from a partnership between Syfy and NBCUniversal Media Labs, the app was developed by IM360 in collaboration with artists at Digital Domain. The team worked in close conjunction with the visual effects department on The Expanse, maintaining the experience's authenticity by working off of materials used to build the environments on the show.

Premiering on Syfy Monday, December 14 at 10PM ET/PT, The Expanse is a 10-episode drama set 200 years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system. A hardened detective (Thomas Jane) and a rogue ship's captain (Steven Strait) come together for what starts as the case of a missing young woman and evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history. The series is based on the New York Times bestselling book series collectively known as The Expanse, written by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey).
