Syfy Greenlights Supernatural Drama Dominion aka Legion TV Series

Adrianne Palicki in Legion (2010) Movie PosterScott Stewart’s “Legion” TV series is a go on the Syfy Channel, though it’s gotten a new name, “Dominion”, and the show will be made into a 90-minute backdoor pilot for the cable network.

“Dominion” will be based on the 2010 movie starring Paul Bettany as a fallen angel who must protect Adrianne Palicki’s unborn son, who he believes to be the savior of mankind. From the sounds of it, “Dominion” will pick up where that movie left off, set “25 years in the future after a war between an army of angels and mankind has transformed the world.”

That sounds like the end of “Legion”. The show will then follow “the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he’s the unlikely savior of humanity.”

Adrianne Palicki’s unborn son in the movie, from the sounds of it. Maybe they can get Palicki to do a cameo.

Stewart, who also co-wrote “Legion”, will direct the 90-minute pilot. Like most backdoor pilots, Syfy will see how the movie plays, then either greenlight it for an ongoing series or not.

Here’s “Legion” in case some of you don’t remember it from 3 years ago:
