SYFY ANNOUNCES AN EXPANSIVE SLATE OF NEW REALITY DEVELOPMENT

Series in the works include Molecular Gastronomist Marcel Vigneron, Feng Shui Master Ariel Towne, Illusionist Jason Latimer, and Rogue Inventor Deszo Molnar

New York, New York - March 16, 2010 - Syfy today announced its next generation of reality programming which partners with the top producers in the field to create a wide-ranging development slate of docu-soaps, competition/elimination, and investigative reality series. As part of its larger mandate to "Imagine Greater," this new crop of unscripted series from Syfy will push the envelope of speculative, alternative worlds and lifestyles.

Marcel's Quantum Kitchen

Utilizing the science of cooking, Marcel's Quantum Kitchen stars one of America's most notorious chefs, molecular gastronomist Marcel Vigneron (Top Chef). In each episode, Marcel and his new catering and event company will be hired by a demanding client to produce an extraordinary celebration or event. Based on the client's requests, Marcel will dream up a theme and cuisine for the event, which range from a fairytale graduation party and a Goth-rock fashion show to a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new subway line. He and his team of party planners and chefs will tap the depths of their imagination and culinary talents to create everything from the immersive d�cor to a delicious menu that emphasizes Marcel's unique brand of avant-garde cooking.

Marcel's Quantum Kitchen is a production of Intuitive Entertainment. Executive Producers: Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins.

Force of Nature

Force of Nature follows the life of Ariel Towne, an average guy who just happens to be a Feng Shui master, as he interweaves contemporary, practical solutions with ancient mystical philosophies to help his wide range of clients achieve their goals. The show will tap into Ariel's unique ability to translate a misunderstood, controversial discipline into an accessible tool relevant to virtually any client, situation, or space from personal homes to restaurants, stores, and even sports arenas. With Ariel as the guide, viewers will peer in on clients who are grappling with compelling, relatable problems - and desperately in need of Ariel's help, and will be inspired by the amazing transformations that Ariel facilitates.

Force of Nature is a production of Evolution Media. Executive Produced by Douglas Ross and Co-Executive Produced by Alex Baskin.

The Latimer Project

Jason Latimer, three time World Champion of Magic and owner of Latimer Corp, an illusion design firm, is the creative genius behind the greatest illusions ever

imagined. Together with his master builders, thinkers and illusioneers, this modern-day Harry Potter transforms everyday magic into epic visual trickery. From concept to creation, we follow the process behind Jason's visions. Starting with doodles in a notebook ending in stunning illusions that can include elaborate ten-ton props, Jason and his team create breathtaking, mind-bending events for his clients.

The Latimer Project is a production of Pilgrim Films. Executive Produced by Craig Piligian.

Mr. Impossible

When the world's most brilliant scientists and engineers can't get the job done they turn to just one man� Dezso Molnar. This docusoap follows the travels and travails of the "rogue inventor" who is known simply as Mr. Impossible. No matter how difficult the problem or how futuristic the technology, Dezso always finds a way to make the seemingly impossible suddenly possible. Whether his inventions are being launched into space, raced at over 600 miles an hour across the Utah Salt Flats, or diving into the depths of the Mediterranean, he is always on the lookout for ways to change life as we know it.

Mr. Impossible is a production of Story House Productions. Executive Produced by Andreas Gutzeit.

Paranormal Files

From Dimitri Doganis & Bart Layton, the acclaimed creative team behind "Locked Up Abroad", this tense, filmic and high-octane drama-documentary series brings to life the stories of people who have lived through paranormal experiences that defy explanation. Using the mixture of intimate first-hand testimony and grittly realistic drama that production company Raw is known for, Paranormal Files will take the audience into a world turned upside-down by extraordinary and terrifying events

Paranormal Files is a production of Raw TV. Executive Produced Dimitri Doganis & Bart Layton.

Face Off

Face Off is an exciting new competition/elimination series which explores the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination which allows them to create amazing works of living art. Each episode involves incredible reveals as we see the finished results of the competitors' work. The show will go beyond simple effects make-up and incorporate many different skill sets including prosthetics, 3-D design, animatronics, sculpting, puppeteering, casting and molding.

Face Off is a production of Mission Control. Executive Produced by Michael Agbadian & Dwight Smith.

The Dome Experiment

Throughout history, social scientists have been studying "nature vs. nurture" and the great debate about what makes us a civilized society. The Dome Experiment will test the boundaries of Human Nature. Twelve test subjects from all walks of life (the leader, the worker, the entertainer, the provider, etc) will enter "The Dome", a completely sealed bio-environment. Relying on each other for all of their daily needs (food, shelter, entertainment, security), they will face a series of challenges and experiments designed to expose the true nature of humanity. The results will be a fascinating look into the fragility of learned human behavior and will answer the question: what plays a bigger role - genetics or the environment?

The Dome Experiment is a production of 3 Ball Productions.

Untitled Artifact Search Series

From Michael Agbadian & Dwight Smith, this fast-paced action-adventure series travels the world in search of some of history's greatest relics and artifacts, all of which are believed to hold hidden powers and mystical significance for ancient and modern cultures. Each episode will include Indiana Jones-type adventure and Da Vinci Code-style connections as the hidden truths and alternative theories of these mythical objects are explored like never before.

Untitled Artifact Search Series is a production of Mission Control. Executive Produced Michael Agbadian & Dwight Smith.
