The Syfy channel has announced its gargantuan schedule of original movies and miniseries slated to air over the course of 2010. Featuring giant animals, giant hybrids of animals, deadly monsters, evil witches and multiple visits to the future, the next year’s titles shouldn’t disappoint in bringing home everything you’ve come to love about the channel’s programming.
The miniseries and Saturday Original Movies viewers can look forward to include:
Saturday, April 10: MEGA PIRANHA (Directed by Eric Forsberg): Singer Tiffany stars, and must join forces with Paul Logan and Barry Williams to stop a giant strain of the ferocious fish from the Amazon before they make it to Florida.
Sunday, April 18: RIVERWORLD (Directed by Stuart Gillard): Matt Ellman is an American war-zone reporter who, with his fiancée Jessie (Laura Vandervoot), is killed in a suicide bomber attack. They both come to consciousness, but separated, in a world where everyone who has ever lived on Earth is reborn along the banks of a river. Matt comes across a 13th-century female samurai and Mark Twain (!), and together they set out to find Jessie.
