Syfy Announces Krypton and Happy! panels for Comic-Con
Syfy has announced their full slate of programming for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con (which you can find by clicking here) and among them are panels for the comic book based Krypton and Happy!
The Krypton panels kicks off Saturday, July 22 at 1:15 PM in the Indigo Ballroom, with panelists including star Cameron Cuffe and executive producers Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) and Cameron Welsh (Ash vs Evil Dead, Constantine), for a sneak peek at the upcoming series followed by an out-of-this-world Q&A.
Happy! is set to follow at 2:45 PM in Room 6BCF with panelists set to include star Chris Meloni, comic creator and executive producer Grant Morrison, plus EPs Brian Taylor and Patrick MacManus.
The Krypton series will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. The Seg-El name is both a nod to Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and a reference to John Byrne’s 1980s miniseries, “The World of Krypton.” Cameron Cuffe is set to play Seg-El along with Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod. Krypton will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
Happy! stars Christopher Meloni (Wet Hot American Summer, Man of Steel) as Nick Sax, a corrupt, intoxicated ex-cop turned hit-man, adrift in a stinking twilight world of casual murder, soulless sex, eczema and betrayal. With a hit gone wrong, a bullet in his side, the cops and the mob on his tail, and a monstrous child killer in a Santa suit on the loose, Nick and his world will be changed forever this Christmas. By a tiny blue horse called Happy. Based on the Image Comics miniseries by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, the series is executive produced by Morrison himself and Crank’s Brian Taylor. Patrick Macmanus will serve as showrunner.
