DS9's Ira Steven Behr to Run Syfy's Alphas
Deadline has an exclusive that Ira Steven Behr, the show runner of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and The 4400, among others, will be taking on Syfy's new show, Alphas.
Offers Deadline, "Alphas, from BermanBraun, Universal Cable Prods. and writers Zak Penn and Michael Karnow, stars David Strathairn and follows a team of ordinary citizens who possess extraordinary and unusual mental skills. Behr will serve as an executive producer alongside Penn and BermanBraun's Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein. The series' 90-minute pilot was directed by Lost director-producer Jack Bender."
For genre fans, this is great news. DS9 stands unique among the various Star Trek TV spin-offs, with Behr and his team crafting a series that was often serialized and always textured in a way that most of the others weren't. His vision for Alphas should be an intriguing one.
