SFX Magazine shared the first shot of Kelly Overton in Syfy’s “Van Helsing,” a 13-episode sci-fi series from Nomadic Pictures (“Fargo,” “Hell On Wheels”).
Overton plays Vanessa Helsing, the daughter of famous vampire hunter and Dracula nemesis Abraham Van Helsing. She is resurrected five years in the future to find out that vampires have taken over the world and that she possesses unique power over them. She is humanity’s last hope to lead an offensive to take back what has been lost.
Neil LaBute serves as writer/showrunner on the drama, a new take on the Dracula myth.
“’Van Helsing’ represents a new mythology in sci-fi by challenging traditional vampire rules,” said Chad Oakes, Co-Chairman of Calgary-based Nomadic Pictures. “The series is unique in exploring a world completely dominated by vampires, while the human characters have to learn the importance of working together to ensure their survival.”
Added Chris Regina, SVP, Program Strategy, Syfy,“’Van Helsing’ reimagines a classic story in a compelling new way, featuring a bold and complex heroine.” (Deadline)
