Syfy has ordered 12 Monkeys to series with a 12-episode order. Bryan Fuller's High Moon will not go ahead as a series. You can read Deadline's report here.

Happy about 12 Monkeys, but disappointed about High Moon, I was really looking forward to that one.

Cool, I've been hoping Nick Willing would be doing more stuff for Syfy soon, and I'm glad to see it's a weekly series. I loved Tin Man, Alice, and Neverland.

That seems a little redundant these days, honestly. When the film came out, the idea that millions of TV viewers would watch a show that was just spying on a person's real life was still somewhat conjectural. These days it's an everyday reality, pun intended.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

The Librarians is a go at TNT with a 10-episode order. Rebecca Romijn leads the cast, while Noah Wylie will make recurring appearances. You can read Deadline's rundown of the series, including the rest of the cast, here.

I hope they'll re-air the three movies leading up to the series premiere (and I'm sure they will). Always wanted to see them, but never got a chance to do so.

I'm also glad to hear that John Rogers will be involved with the show.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

^^ Yeah, same here. I didn't even know there were three. The first two looked good, but somehow I never watched, probably because TNT is so far off my radar. This is actually the most interesting series order I've seen in a while.

It's territory that's been covered by Warehouse 13 since the original 3 movies came out. Very similar in tone too.
