Syfy’s newest original scripted series Alphas is an action-packed thriller about five ordinary people brought together to form one extraordinary team. They are known as Alphas — people with the unique power to stretch the capabilities of the human mind giving them superhuman physical and mental abilities — and the impossible is what they do best.
Alphas premiered Monday, July 11 at 10:00PM ET/PT. We held a t-shirt giveaway celebrating the arrival of the new series. Susan Ladd is our lucky winner. She says, “Syfy is my favorite station and [I] hope to win.” You won Susan, and I hope you wear the t-shirt while watching Alphas.
Alphas follows a clandestine group of average everyday citizens with amazing abilities operating within the U.S. Department of Defense. The team investigates cases that point to others with abilities like theirs, and as they work against the clock to solve this new brand of crime, they must prevent their own personality differences and disparate backgrounds from interfering with their missions.
In addition to David Strathairn, the ensemble cast stars Malik Yoba, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada, Ryan Cartwright and Laura Mennell.
Alphas consists of 12 episodes including the 90-minute pilot directed by Jack Bender (Emmy nominated director and executive producer of Lost).
