An April 2013 premiere is expected for an action series bought by the Syfy cable channel, Deadline.com reports. The series is the British show “Sinbad.”
“With its strong production values and rich story, ‘Sinbad’ will be a terrific addition to our prime-time lineup," said Chris Regina, Syfy’s senior vice president, programming and original movies, according to the story.
Based on the legends of the Middle Eastern sailor, "Sinbad" stars Elliot Knight in the title role with "Lost" actor Naveen Andrews as a co-star. The show has 12 episodes in its first season.
