Network: SyFy
Stars: Rachel Nichols, Victor Webster, Erik Knudsen, Stephen Lobo, Roger Cross
Premieres: January 14

Why we're excited: The UK has already had the pleasure of experiencing this science fiction thriller, a high-concept drama which stars Nichols as Kiera Cameron, a law enforcement agent from 2077 who follows a group of terrorists that rebelled against the corporation-ruled dystopian future infrastructure and time travel to Vancouver 2012 to escape conviction.

Cameron works with the present-day officials to track down the renegades while also doing her best to avoid changing the future—and pondering if her bleak future is even worth preserving. It seemingly promises action with weighty, thoughtful social/political commentary, a mix SyFy once executed awesomely with the late, great Battlestar Galactica.
