SyFy to make a Steampunk series... staring H.G. Wells!

Per the Hollywood Reporter (via IO9), the SyFy network will be producing a new series akin to Warehouse 13, which will have the legendary H.G. Wells in an 1890's Steampunk environment.  Its still in its developmental stage (meaning there will be plenty of changes), but this is yet another high profile recognition of Steampunk as a notable genre.  We'll see just how it progresses, but SyFy does tend to take risks, when not involved in the "mutant monster of the week" productions, so one can hope!  For more details, please visit:

SyFy (or SciFi) has seemed happy to innovate, but more reluctant to support a series once it has developed a following.

It should be noted that in Warehouse 13 H.G. Wells is a woman, and not necessarily one of the good guys. This should make it quite an interesting show.
