Syfy’s upcoming drama Helix (from Battlestar Galatica producer Ronald D. Moore) has picked Billy Campbell for a leading role, according to Deadline. Campbell will play a divorced doctor who is part of a team investigating the outbreak of a deadly disease.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed this means Billy Campbell will finally be on good show.

Pan Am fave Karine Vanasse will appear in a multi-episode arc on Revenge as a woman from Daniel‘s past. If they can find an excuse to get Vanasse to sing “Deutschland Uber Alles” again, I’ll be happy.

The Hollywood Reporter digs into the behind-the-scenes drama at Community and series creator Dan Harmon. It’s an interesting peek, at the very least.

Abby Huntsman, daughter of Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, is joining the panel of MSNBC’s The Cycle, replacing S.E. Cupp. I’d like to think this means »

The official poster for the most recent Syfy original movie proclaims, “Sharknado. Enough Said!” But the Internet sure had a lot more to say about the TV movie, which premiered Thursday night and stars Tara Reid and Ian Ziering battling sharks swept up in a tornado headed straight for Los Angeles. The perfect storm of sharks, disaster porn, and C-list actors struck a chord with viewers, eliciting a tempest of tweets, a gale of GIFs, and even a drizzle of daytime news coverage.

During its TV run, #sharknado and #TaraReid made waves on Twitter. Reid and Ziering promoted the program via the social-media site, »

Syfy Already Talking ‘Sharknado’ Sequel

12 July 2013 11:27 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Syfy has been bringing TV auds campy telepic fare for about a decade now, but Thursday’s “Sharknado” far surpassed the NBCUniversal cabler’s expectations when it came to online buzz and audience reaction.

And yes, a “Sharknado” sequel is already being discussed at the Syfy headquarters, though official plans have yet to coalesce. For now, the cabler is planning a rerun of the pic next Thursday at 7 p.m. to serve as a lead-in to Frankie Muniz-starrer “Blast Vegas.”

“We’ve had other movies where the titles would catch some buzz, like ‘Sharktopus’ or ‘Jersey Shore Shark Attack,’” explained Thomas Vitale, Syfy’s exec veep of programming and original movies. “But the level that ‘Sharknado’ reached, that was a surprise. It’s one of those happy accidents.”

Sharknado,” starring Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, is about exactly what the hodgepodge name implies: a shark-filled tornado that wrecks havoc on Los Angeles. »

Syfy’s Latest Entry for Best-Named Movie Mashup Title: Sharknado

20 June 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

The mind reels, doesn’t it? Sharknado. What will it be? Do sharks swim in circles and cause a tornado? Are the sharks actually in the tornado, and somehow survive long enough to eat people as they tear across the heartland? Well, guess no further; Syfy has put an end to the speculation with this press release about the Original Movie, which features Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210), John Heard (Home Alone) and Tara Reid (The Big Lebowski).

But wait, there’s more! The press release also covers another Original Movie, featuring Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle) and Barry Bostwick (Rocky Horror Picture Show): Blast Vegas. Not even remotely close to Sharknado in the Awesome Name category, but I’m always happy to see Brad whenever he appears, with or without Janet.

Please note that since Syfy is spending the summer airing Primeval New World and Sinbad on Saturday »
