Syfy's new space Western "Defiance" premieres April 15, but you can see almost 15 minutes of the post apocalyptic series right here!
The show is set in a near-future Earth that has been destroyed by warring alien races, but then rebuilt and shared by those races and humans. The show stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene, Tony Curran and Stephanie Leonidas as residents of the border town called Defiance, which has risen from the remnants of St. Louis.
The series is part of a two-fer entertainment package that also includes Trion Worlds upcoming online third-person shooter, Defiance,
In the year 2046, it's a new Earth--with new rules. Over thirty years after various alien races arrived on Earth, the landscape is completely altered, terraformed nearly beyond recognition. To the town of Defiance, on what used to be St. Louis, comes the mysterious Nolan (Grant Bowler) and his charge, Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas). As they settle into town--overseen by the mayor, Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) and filled with residents like the powerful Rafe McCawley (Graham Greene), enterprising lounge owner Kenya (Mia Kirshner) and the ambitious, alien Tarrs (Tony Curran and Jaime Murray)--events begin to unfold that threaten the fragile peace this border town has fought for.
