A new drama from the channel and creative mind behind the modern day Battlestar Galactica should be enough for anyone to put down their bongos and pay attention. Here’s what Syfy has to say:
Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation…or total annihilation.
So it’s like The Thing then? Helix was created by Cameron Porsandeh and brought to you by executive producer Ronald D. Moore and stars Billy Campbell, Kyra Zagorsky and Jordan Hayes.
Helix premieres 10 January 2014 on Syfy
