PRODUCTION POWERS UP ON SEASON 2 OF SYFY'S "ALPHAS" FROM UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS AND BERMANBRAUN TELEVISION

ERIN WAY JOINS CAST AS NEW ALPHA TEAM MEMBER

NEW YORK - March 30, 2012 - Production begins this week in Toronto on the second season of Syfy's super-powered original drama series Alphas starring David Strathairn, Malik Yoba, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada, Ryan Cartwright and Laura Mennell. Joining the cast this season is Erin Way (Detroit 187, Private Practice) as "Kat" the newest addition to the team of quirky superhuman investigators. Alphas is produced by Universal Cable Productions and BermanBraun Television. The season will consist of 13 episodes and is slated to premiere on Syfy in July 2012.

Alphas follows a clandestine group of ordinary people whose unique neurological condition equips them with extraordinary mental and physical abilities. Led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn) this unlikely team takes on cases the CIA, FBI and Pentagon are unwilling or unable to solve and go head-to-head with many of the criminal Alphas released from the Binghamton facility in last season's finale episode. When the series debuted last summer, it became Syfy's most-watched original scripted series premiere in two years. Overall the show averaged 3.3 million total viewers during its first season.

Erin Way joins the ensemble as "Kat," a mysterious, free-spirited young loner whose Alpha ability allows her to pick up any skill at a glance. The downside to her condition, which has plagued her for her entire life, is that her memories are short-lived and her experiences fade away after a short amount of time. Becoming a member of the team provides a purpose and direction for Kat and working with Dr. Rosen may help her reclaim her lost past.

Way became familiar to television audiences playing the offbeat "Wendy Chapin-Lowmeister" on the ABC drama Detroit 187. Her previous television credits include Hawaii Five-0, Private Practice and Girlfriends. In film, she has worked with directors Joe Dante, Ron Howard, Bryce Dallas-Howard and Mark Ruffalo and can be seen this summer in the features The Collection, Not That Funny and Donnby.

Erin Way is represented by Gloria Hinojosa at Amsel, Eisenstadt and Frazier and managed by Kay Liberman of Liberman-Zerman Management.

Bruce Miller (Eureka) joins Alphas this season as Executive Producer and Showrunner. Executive Producers are Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein for BermanBraun and Zak Penn. The series was created by Zak Penn and Michael Karnow.
