Syfy Picks Up Zack Penn’s Alphas

THR is reporting that Syfy is moving forward with the 90-minute action-adventure pilot “Alphas,” from Zack Penn.

“Alphas,” which follows a team of ordinary citizens who possess hyperdeveloped neurological abilities, hails from writers Zak Penn (”X-Men: The Last Stand”) and Michael Karnow and BermanBraun Television.

In its original incarnation as “Section 8,” the drama was first taken to NBC through BermanBraun’s first-look deal there. After the network passed, the project sparked heated bidding among the other broadcast networks in summer 2007, landing at ABC with a six-episode production order for a possible midseason launch behind “Lost.”

The show was in preproduction, with writing on the first episode under way, when the WGA strike brought work to a halt.

When the strike ended, creative differences killed the project its been in limbo ever since.

So, in a world full of X-Men and Heroes is there room for another mutant license? I guess time will tell.
