Sky Sci-Fi confirmed plans to launch "From" in the UK as fiction fans prepare for the channel rebrand of Syfy to Sky Sci-Fi at the end of this month. “We can’t wait for 'From' to land on screens just in time for the Sky Sci-Fi channel revamp," Zai Bennett, Managing Director, Content Sky UK and Ireland, said. "The new series is a brilliant addition to the hours of content that will be on offer for science fiction and fantasy fans, and viewers are in for a treat with the mystery that’s about to unfold."
"From" will be available to watch on Sky Sci-Fi (EPG 152 Sky) and to binge on demand, as well as on streaming service NOW, from 26 July. Developed by producer John Griffin and exec produced by LOST creators, Jack Bender and Jeff Pinkner, those at home will journey into the unknown with a brand-new series of twists and turns, starring Harold Perrineau, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Eion Bailey. The contemporary sci-fi horror series, which has already been renewed for a second series, will be available as a boxset release.
The title was created by John Griffin and is executive produced by Jack Bender, who also directed the first four episodes, Griffin and Jeff Pinkner, as well as Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec and Scott Rosenberg from Midnight Radio, Anthony and Joe Russo and Mike Larocca for AGBO and Lindsay Dunn. Midnight Radio’s Adrienne Erickson serves as co-executive producer. FROM is a co-production between EPIX Studios and MGM International Television Productions and is produced by Midnight Radio and AGBO. The series is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution and premiered in the US on EPIX.
The 10-episode series showcases the mystery of a nightmarish town that traps all who enter. Sci-fi watchers can expect to see unwilling residents fight to keep a sense of normalcy and search for a way out, whilst they battle to survive the threats of the surrounding forest, filled with terrifying creatures that come out when the sun goes down.
