Although we often see announcements from networks about when a show will hit the airwaves, when the date given is a season, like “summer,” we’ve learned to treat that as speculation. This is especially true when there is no video forthcoming.
This means we’re particularly happy to see that Syfy has released our first look at upcoming series Dominion, and given it a “June” date. It could be a really great original series, like Helix, or less so, like, well, one or two others that might have been somewhat disappointing.
Here’s the first, brief TV spot, followed by a reminder of the synopsis:
TV Spot: Dominion – Coming June 2014
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, starring Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Alan Dale, Anthony Stewart Head, and Luke Allen-Gale, premieres June, 2014 on Syfy.
