Back in October it was announced that Dean Devlin, co-writer and producer of 1994’s Stargate, would be teaming with Jonathan Glassner, creator of the TV show Stargate SG-1, to develop a new fantasy adventure series entitled The Outpost, and now comes word that the project has found a home at The CW.
The Outpost is created by Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin and will star Jessica Green (Ash vs Evil Dead) as Talon, the lone survivor of a race called Blackbloods, as she tracks the killers of her family to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world. Along the way she discovers that she possesses a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictatorship.”
Also featuring in the cast of the ten-hour series are Jake Stormoen (Mythica), Imogen Waterhouse (Nocturnal Animals) Andrew Howard (Hell on Wheels), Anand Desai-Barochia (Lake Mead) and Robyn Malcolm (Top of the Lake).
“We are thrilled that The Outpost will be premiering on the CW this summer,” said Devlin. “The CW is an amazing platform for fantasy television and has a long history of success with the genre. We are confident that this is a terrific home for this project that we are so proud of — and look very much forward to this partnership.”
The CW will announce details of the premiere for The Outpost at a later date.
