Warehouse 13 Gets Green Light

SCI FI Channel has given a green light to production on Warehouse 13, ordering 11 hours of the new drama, including the previously produced two-hour pilot. Warehouse 13 stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly and Saul Rubinek.

After saving the life of the president, two Secret Service agents find themselves abruptly transferred to Warehouse 13--a massive, top-secret storage facility in South Dakota--which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.

The caretaker, Artie (Rubinek), charges Pete (McClintock) and Myka (Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself.

Production is slated to begin in February in Toronto for a July 2009 premiere.

Warehouse 13 is produced by Universal Cable Productions and executive-produced by David Simkins (Blade: The Series). It is based on a story by Brent Mote and Jane Espenson; the teleplay was written by Brent Mote and Jane Espenson and David Simkins. It is directed by Jace Alexander.

The Sept. 18 fourth-season premiere of The CW's Supernatural delivered the show's best ratings since 2006, with 4 million viewers.

Comic writer Mark Millar (Wanted, Kick-Ass) updated fans on his official bulletin board about the status of a film adaptation of his War Heroes comic, which is reportedly out to studios.

Boosted by a lead-in from the season premiere of House, the Sept. 16 second episode of Fox's Fringe saw its audience improve by a whopping 45 percent (from 9.13 million) over its premiere a week earlier, Variety reported.
