SYFY is releasing a new drama series “Defiance”. It will debut on the 16th April in Asia. What is interesting is that a game has been created for it as well, so not only can you watch it, but you can play it too.

NEW EARTH. NEW RULES

DEFIANCE DELIVERS UNPRECEDENTED STORYTELLING BY UNITING SCRIPTED TV SERIES WITH PC GAMING PREMIERES 16 APRIL 2013

ONLY ON SYFY ASIA (Starhub Ch 526)
(WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE US LAUNCH)

8 March 2013, Singapore – Syfy’s highly-anticipated series, Defiance, makes its debut in Asia on April 16 with a two hour episode broadcast within 24 hours of the US premiere. The 12-episode science fiction series takes an unprecedented approach to storytelling by uniting scripted television and online gaming.

Both the series and game feature an intersected world and storylines that will launch in early April, starting with the release of the game, followed by the US series premiere on the 15th.

Defiance stars Grant Bowler (Nolan), Julie Benz (Amanda Rosewater), Stephanie Leonidas (Irisa), Tony Curran (Datak Tarr), Jaime Murray (Stahma Tarr), Graham Greene (Rafe McCawley) and Mia Kirshner (Kenya).

Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO.
