Defiance, an unprecedented approach to storytelling, will unite scripted television and online gaming for the very first time. Both the series and the game feature an interconnected world and storylines that will launch in early April with the release of the game and continue seamlessly with the series premiere on the 15th.

Defiance stars Grant Bowler (Nolan), Julie Benz (Amanda Rosewater), Stephanie Leonidas (Irisa), Tony Curran (Datak Tarr), Jaime Murray (Stahma Tarr), Graham Greene (Rafe McCawley) and Mia Kirshner (Kenya).



About Defiance: Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players will adventure in the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story.

The series, produced by Universal Cable Productions, is executive produced by Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Caprica; Hellcats) & Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica). Kevin Murphy serves as showrunner. Scott Stewart (Legion, Priest) directed the pilot; Michael Nankin will serve as supervising producer/director on the series. The game was named “Best MMORPG” from GameSpy at the recent E3 conference in June 2012 (among other accolades).

Sure as heck sounded like it, but I'm sure it's not.

So is it a game or TV show?
EdGross - 1/8/2013, 2:39 PM
It's both a game and a TV show and apparently one will actually have an impact on the other.
PaulimusMaximus - 1/8/2013, 3:07 PM

We'll be covering the show pretty heavily - I've interviewed most of the creators and cast members. It sounds pretty innovative.

but for those who dont play mmo's, wont they miss some of the story? How is this going to make for a successful run?? I think its a cool idea, and have been excited since i saw the first tv spot for it. But people like say my parents, who would watch the show, but wouldnt play the game, how does it effect them and the story they watch?
