Entertainment Weekly have earmarked Defiance in their Comic-Con 2012: TV We Can't Wait To See list
Thirty-five years into the future after an ill-fated war, all sorts of aliens are living among the humans in an eclectic boomtown that's built on top of old St. Louis. But think of Defiance — which will launch concurrently as an MMO videogame — not as an extraterrestrial-versus-human saga but as more of an immigrant drama. ''The seven races of aliens never liked each other all that much, and humans are essentially the eighth race,'' says exec producer Kevin Murphy. ''And all of these factions form different alliances and perspectives on what the world should be and where we should be going as a society.'' This particular society includes aspirational new mayor Amanda (Julie Benz), whose sister, Kenya (Mia Kirshner), is the town madam; and Nolan (Grant Bowler), a drifting scavenger who settles in Defiance with his adopted alien daughter, Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas). ''It's very unusual for a human and an Irathient to be joined at the hip the way Nolan and Irisa are,'' Murphy notes. ''He's basically our Han Solo, and she's our hot alien Chewbacca.'' Hot alien Chewbacca? We defy you not to watch now. (Syfy, April 2013) —Dan Snierson
