Sci Fi Rolls Series Set in Mysterious Warehouse

In the last scene of the film “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the prize Indiana Jones wrested from the Nazis is packed up and sent unceremoniously to a vast government warehouse filled with nondescript crates.
A new series recently greenlighted by Sci Fi Channel is set in Warehouse 13, described by the network as a massive, secret storage facility that houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.
The main characters are two FBI agents. After saving the life of the president, they are promoted to South Dakota, where they are assigned to search for objects stolen from the warehouse and to investigate incidents involving new objects that belong in the collection.
“Warehouse 13” is based on a script from Rockne S. O’Bannon (“Farscape”), Jane Espenson (“Battlestar Galactica”) and D. Brent Mote. It will be produced by Universal Media Studios beginning in December for an expected premiere next summer.
“Like our successful series ‘Eureka,’ ‘Warehouse 13’ is a fun, intriguing concept that should continue to broaden our audience through present-day, relatable stories with an imaginative twist,” said Mark Stern, executive VP for original programming at Sci Fi. “Rockne has delivered a wonderful script and we can’t wait to get this into production.”
Sci Fi has been ramping up its production of original series. New shows in the hopper include the drama “Revolution” and the reality series “Ghost Hunters International.” The network recently began developing a dramedy, “Earthlings,” and renewed “Stargate Atlantis.”
In December it will air “Tin Man,” a new look at the story of Oz starring Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cumming and Richard Dreyfuss.
