'KILLJOYS' SF TV SERIES
GETS LUKE MACFARLANE AND AARON ASHMORE IN THE CASTAnd since it seems it is a sf day at HOLLYWOOD SPY, check out this piece of science fiction news: sometime ago I've announced that SyFy is preparing ten episodes series KILLJOYS a new intergalactic adventure! Now they have lead actors: Luke MacFarlane (BROTHERS AND SISTERS), Aaron Ashmore (SMALLVILLE) and Hannah John Kamen. In a distant Galaxy, the people of the planet Qresh have colonized their three moons, creating four stratified worlds, each defined along socio-economic lines and rife with social unrest. In this planetary unit, known as the Quad, a highly regulated group of bounty hunters, KILLJOYS, are licensed to pursue a vast range of warrants throughout the galaxy. Killjoys are not allowed to take a personal or political side in their mission, which proves to be impossible and near fatal for Dutch. Dutch (Hannah John Kamen) is a gorgeous, compli- cated and deadly Killjoy at the top of her game. Her partner, John the Bastard (Aaron Ashmore, is a peace maker who hates conflict. When John’s incredibly sexy and confident brother D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) shows up to join the partners, the dysfunctional trio’s lives become intertwined. Confined to close quarters, Dutch, John, and D’avin quickly find themselves caught in a tricky love triangle.
