Syfy"s Dominion Season 1 premieres this June 19, 2014 at 9/8c on Syfy. The new TV series is based on the 2010 movie Legion that did not do so well with most horror fans, I personally thought it could have been better but I liked the overall plot of the film. Angels bring hell on earth and Archangel Michael leads humanity against Archangel Gabriel and heavens army. Luke Allen-Gale, Carl Beukes and Alan Dale star in Dominion. I am picturing that Dominion needs a lot of special effects and a high budget so I am really interested to see what Syfy has done with the source material, I have high hopes for what can be done with the TV series.
The ultimate celestial battle between good and evil will descend to Earth in 2014 as Syfy officially greenlights the scripted drama Dominion (working title) to series, it was announced today by Syfy President, Dave Howe. The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and BOLD Films, and filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic Supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.
Dominion stars Christopher Egan (Kings), Tom Wisdom (300), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Alan Dale (Lost), Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Luke Allen-Gale (The Borgias).
