Promo for upcoming Stephen King based Syfy series HAVEN.

The SyFy channel (trying to get used to the new spelling) has released the first promo for the upcoming series HAVEN. The series debuts, on July 9th, at 10 EST.

Syfy’s all-new one-hour drama series Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) who has a lost past, and arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.

As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven — including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.

The impressive creative team behind Haven includes showrunner Scott Shepherd (Tru Calling, The Dead Zone) who is joined by E1 Entertainment’s John Morayniss (Hung, Copper) Noreen Halpern (Hung, Copper), Laszlo Barna (The Bridge) and Michael Rosenberg (Hung, The Riches) as well as his partners, Executive Producers Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller (The Dead Zone, Wildfire, Greek). The pilot was written by Sam Ernst (The Dead Zone) and Jim Dunn (The Dead Zone) who will also serve as executive producers on the series.

Why don’t we change that to SORT OF based on THE COLORADO KID as the town, as well as some of the characters, is still used with a new lead.

The talented Charles Ardai (Publisher of TCK with his killer HARD CASE CRIME press) is also involved and is doing some writing for the show. While he is unwilling to reveal what sort of mayhem he, and the rest of the crew, have in store for us, he did say he was having fun: “My experience has been terrific and I’m very excited to see the show start airing; I think we have some great stories to tell and I hope people enjoy them.”

If you are not familar with Hard Case, head on over to the website and order some books ASAP. I would suggest you start with Christa Faust’s MONEY SHOT.
