Deadline has shared the first image from Syfy‘s upcoming television series 12 Monkeys, a drama based on the 1995 film directed by Terry Gilliam.

The project, written/co-executive produced by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (Nikita), has received a 12-episode order for a January 2015 premiere.

Synopsis: “’12 Monkeys’ follows the journey of Cole (Aaron Stanford), a desperate and haunted time traveler from the post-apocalyptic near future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that eventually will decimate the human race.”

Sean Bean plays Aaron Marker, a political strategist whose relationship with Cassandra Railly (female lead Amanda Schull) is torn apart by Cole’s appearance. Aaron tries to protect Cassandra but is pulled in to the conspiracy to end the world.

Zeljko Ivanek will play Leland Frost, a brilliant venture capitalist and philanthropist behind cutting-edge biological research. His charming and debonair exterior hides a ruthless drive that may bring mankind to extinction.
