Syfy’s “12 Monkeys” Television Pilot Is Officially Ordered

August 27, 2013

Deadline reports that Syfy has given a cast-contingent pilot order to the previously reported 12 MONKEYS, a new drama series based on the 1995 Universal Pictures/Atlas Entertainment film directed by Terry Gilliam starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt.

The 60-minute pilot, produced by Universal Cable Producers and Atlas Entertainment, was written by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (Terra Nova).

It follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race. Filming is tentatively slated to begin in November.

Atlas’ Charles Roven (who produced the feature) and Richard Suckle will executive produce, with Matalas and Fickett co-executive producing.
