    SyFy has ordered 12 episodes of 12 Monkeys, a drama based on the 1995 Universal Pictures film directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Bruce Willis & Brad Pitt. 12 monkeys, 12 episodes -- coincidence?

    The series is written & co-executive produced by Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett (Nikita) is scheduled for a January 2015 premiere. The show will follow the journey of a time traveler (Aaron Stanford) from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race. Amanda Schull, Noah Bean and Kirk Acevedo also star.

    “12 Monkeys is a captivating time travel adventure and high stakes race against the clock,” said Syfy president Dave Howe.

    SyFy has released their first trailer for the TV series adaption of 12 Monkeys. Looks like it could be an interesting drama.

    Wow, the film was almost 20 years ago? As if I needed another reason to feel old...

    It'll be interesting to see how well they do with a TV adaptation of a movie. Trying to recall others who've done the same...

    I've watched the first six episodes. I love it! (Way better and less confusing than the film!!)

    I've watched some of it, but if you don't watch all of it it is hard to follow. Plot line and character personalities are very complex, and it seems to vary by which time line the character is in. Interesting -wish I had more time to watch it.

    SyFy has placed an order for a 3rd season of 12 Monkeys. Surprisingly I haven't seen any of this yet.
