Her experiences lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history. The cast also includes Camryn Manheim, Michael O’Neill, Grace Gummer, Pierce Gagnon, Hiroyuki Sanada and Goran Visnjic.

The series that is executive produced by Steven Spielsberg will run for 13 episodes on Syfy in January 2015.    Subsequent series are still to air first on Amazon Prime as they are the key UK license holder.

The recent deal joins a list of recent acquisitions by the channel after the picked up The Originals, Defiance and post-apocalyptic drama Dominion.
