A new live-action series is headed to Syfy that tracks the great-granddaughter of Western legend Wyatt Earp. “Wynonna Earp,” based on the comic book series created by Beau Smith, received an initial order for 13 one-hour episodes.
The project comes from Seven24 Films and IDW Entertainment, with Emily Andras to develop the series for TV and serve as executive producer and showrunner.
Key cast members will include Melanie Scrofano, Tim Rozon and Shamier Anderson.
The show is described as “a fast-paced, contemporary thriller that follows Wyatt Earp’s great-granddaughter as she battles demons and other supernatural beings. Wynonna is a witty and wild modern day gunslinger, using her unique abilities and a dysfunctional posse of allies to bring the paranormal to justice.”
The show is set to debut in April 2016.
