Syfy Ratchets Up the 'Sharknado' Factor Variety
Syfy has found a way to bring even more "Sharknado" to its viewers. Variety reports that the cable channel is creating its first-ever “Sharknado” week in preparation for the debut of its “Sharknado 2: The Second One."
“Sharknado” week will run from July 26 to Aug. 2, with the premiere of “Sharknado 2” on July 30, a Wednesday. Other programming during the week will include “Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark,” “Sharkmania: The Top 15 Biggest Baddest Bloodiest Bites” and “Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda,” the story notes.
The original “Sharknado” was a huge social-media phenomenon, which drove viewers to the Syfy TV movie.
