Preview: Warehouse 13 Promos and Synopsis
Yeah, yeah, I know the Sci Fi Channel’s latest show Warehouse 13 isn’t going to break the bank of creativity, and it’s certainly not going to be as deep or gritty or “real” as Battlestar Galactica. But you know what? I don’t want it to be. There’s plenty of room for BSG-ish shows, and then there are plenty of rooms for Warehouse 13. The show is debuting in July on the Sci Fi Channel, and will star Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly as FBI agents assigned to a super secret warehouse in the middle of nowhere in charge of guarding a warehouse full of strange, paranormal artifacts. Basically, “The X-Files” meets, well, a goofier version of “The X-Files”.
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 windswept South Dakota that houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.
The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie (Saul Rubinek) assigns Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) the challenge of chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to store at the Warehouse. The two agents are also commissioned to help Artie control the Warehouse itself, which proves to be a task beyond what either of them could have ever imagined.
Warehouse 13 is an action-packed exploration where the unlikely, becomes what’s possible and reality is a limitless phenomenon filled with wonder.
Warehouse 13 comes from Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) who also serves as showrunner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice, Rescue Me) is co-executive producer and director; and Stephen Surjik (Monk, Burn Notice) is producer/director.
Got all that? Good. Here are some promos from the pilot episode.
