Syfy.com has just picked up the gorgeous steampunk webseries Riese. And we think we know why: Riese is comprised of all of your favorite genre supporting characters. It's got Smallville's Chloe, BSG's Gaeta, SGU's Brody and Volker, and more, watch!
Syfy.com announced that they will streaming the webseries Riese every Tuesday and Thursday starting October 26, at syfy.com/riese. The fantasy series, which has a bit of Steampunk flavor, is literally stuffed to the brim with Syfy heroes. Did we mention Amanda Tapping is the narrator? Here's the official synopsis:
Riese, a seemingly random wanderer, is being hunted by a terrifying religious cult, The Sect. Traveling from nation to nation for years, she is accompanied only by a wolf, Fenrir. Together they must evade the assassins sent by the Sect - who'll stop at nothing to complete the task they failed to achieve many years ago. Her past is shrouded in mystery, as even Riese can't recall the events of the tragic night when her entire family was slaughtered and she was forced to flee into the wilderness. On her journey, she'll piece together her past, and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of the world in the balance - and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield. "Riese", a unique and original steam-punk -inspired production includes Christine Chatelain ( SyFy's Sanctuary , Supernatural, The Collector, The L-Word ). Ben Cotton (Harper's Island, Stargate: Atlantis, Stan Helsing), Sharon Taylor (Stargate: Atlantis, Alice and Huck) and Patrick Gilmore (Stargate: Universe, Battlestar Galactica, Intelligence).
And two trailers, our personal favorite is the second due to Allison Mack's sick leather ensemble.
