The Brand New SyFy Action/Drama is stars Adrian Zaw, and Katrina Law.
Here’s a synopsis of The Resistance:
Set in the dying world of Aurordeca, THE RESISTANCE is an action-packed thriller revolving around an epic tale of destiny and revenge.
SYRUS PRIMORIS (Adrian Zaw), a brilliant chemist, has taken control of the ten regions of Aurordeca in the wake of a devastating plague. Half the population is already dead. It is only Syrus and his miracle suppressant, NOXE, that keep the survivors from succumbing to the virus. In exchange, the people grant Syrus absolute power.
Only one group stands in open opposition to the regime. The Aurordecan Resistance Movement (ARM), led by the fierce and driven LANA. ARM sees Syrus for the despot he truly is and fights tirelessly to find a cure for the disease and to free the people from their enslavement to the suppressant. But everything changes through a chance encounter with a mysterious and deadly drifter, ARCLITE. In our exciting first installment of The Resistance, LANA searches for a microchip that contains crucial information; Syrus plots to bring down ARM once and for all; and a mysterious stranger might hold the answer to saving the world.
The new show stars Adrian Zaw as the MAIN bad guy, as an Asian American playing a non-Asian American Role that’s ground breaking. The project was originally envisioned as a Web Series and now is on the brink of a TV Series or even a movie has become a monumental in achievement. It’s an example of how the entertainment industry is experimenting with new models of creation and testing of content.
“Resistance” came to Starz via “Spider-Man” director Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures, Starz’s production partner on “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.” In 2008, Ghost House executive Aaron Lam noticed the online trailers for the Web series project on YouTube and thought he may have found a “Spartacus” director. He looked up creator Adrian Picardi on Facebook — only to find out he was a 21-year-old fresh out of film school. But impressed by the vision of Picardi and his producing partner Eric Ro, Lam talked to Starz, which agreed to put up money — believed to be in the low-six-figure range, or a minimal percentage of the cost of a TV show episode — to put together an initial “Resistance” story. Picardi served as director, cinematographer, writer and editor, and Ro was a producer and cinematographer. THE RESISTANCE SERIES airs on the SyFy Channel Monday , October 4th, 2010.
