Todd Salvkin And Darren Swimmer Joins Syfy’s ‘Dominion’
Salvkin and Swimmer Joins as Co-Showrunner of Syfy New Original Supernatural Series
Syfy announced Smallville alumni Todd Salvkin And Darren Swimmer to join their originals series Dominion. The duo will serve as co-Showrunners and Executive Producers along with Vaun Wilmott. They join Executive Producers Scott Stewart, who co-wrote and directed the feature hit theatrical film Legion (2010), on which the series is based.
The writing partners first met in sixth-grade science class at Palms Junior High School in Los Angeles and have been friends ever since. A cool little fact behind the newly hired EP’s Salvkin and Swimmer.
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.
Dominion stars Christopher Egan (Kings), Tom Wisdom (300), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Alan Dale (Lost), Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Luke Allen-Gale (The Borgias).
