The eagerly-awaited TV adaptation of 12 Monkeys, based on the 1995 film of the same name, comes to Syfy in the UK this week.
Starring Aaron Stanford (X-Men: The Last Stand), Amanda Schull (Suits), Kirk Acevedo (Oz), Emily Hampshire (Rookie Blue) and Noah Bean (Damages), the show tells the story of time traveller James Cole (Stanford).
The first episode of the season is Splinter. Time traveler James Cole (Aaron Stanford) travels from the year 2043 to the present day to stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as “Army of the Twelve Monkeys”. Cole is helped by the brilliant virologist Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) and a math genius with mental issues, Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire).
12 Monkeys started in the US earlier this year and has been building quite the buzz. The show is billed as a complete reimagining of the 12 Monkeys film which was based on Chris Marker’s 1962 short film La Jetée.
