Dynamic Television announced today that Wynonna Earp, a new supernatural thriller series from IDW Entertainment and produced by SEVEN24 Films is available for pre-sale at MIPCOM and that it has begun production in Calgary, Alberta. Wynonna Earp is set for a Syfy Channel debut in April 2016 from Executive Producer and Showrunner Emily Andras (Lost Girl, Killjoys).
Wynonna Earp is a fast-paced, 13-hour episodic supernatural thrill that follows Wyatt Earp’s descendant as she battles demons and other demonic beings. Wynonna is a witty and wild modern day gunslinger, using her unique abilities and a dysfunctional posse of allies to bring the paranormal to justice. The television show is based on IDW Publishing’s graphic novel created by Beau Smith.
IDW Entertainment President David Ozer is excited about bringing the graphic novel to television, “We are thrilled to be working with Dynamic Television on Wynonna Earp. Dynamic’s first class sales team combined with an exciting and original series concept, give us tremendous confidence that series will be seen by prime time audiences around the world.”
Dynamic Television’s Managing Partner Daniel March expressed similar thoughts, “We fell in love with Wynonna when we read the script. We are always attracted to new series and original characters that deliver action, suspense, shock, and flair. Wynonna is unlike any other character on television and we can’t wait to bring her to our broadcast partners.”
Principal photography begins this month in Calgary, Alberta. The series stars Melanie Scrofano (Damien) as Wynonna, and Tim Rozon (Being Human), Shamier Anderson (Defiance), and Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Avengers: Age of Ultron).
