Syfy Spinning Off "Warehouse 13"

Syfy reports they will spin-off a new TV series from their Toronto-lensed 'dramedy', "Warehouse 13", scripted by "Warehouse" writers Jack Kenny and Bob Goodman.

The show will focus on the "Warehouse" character 'H.G. Wells', played by Jaime Murray ("Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena"), set in an 1890's 'steampunk' environment, where she uses her knowledge of contemporary science to solve crimes and mysteries.

Toronto seems best suited for the 19th century setting, that has been used to great effect for "The Murdoch Mysteries" and ABC's upcoming TV pilot "Poe".

"Warehouse 13" is noted as the most watched original series in Syfy history with an average of 3.4 million viewers last season.

The show returns for a third season, July 11, 2011.
