The State of Syn
A new face in Sci-Fi entertainment
Hulu will premiere an innovative new sci-fi series on January 18 called State of Syn, starring Jewel Staite (Firefly, L.A. Complex) and David Hewlett (Stargate SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis). The series combines the best of traditional sci-fi storytelling with an eye popping layered animation style that is like a graphic novel set in motion. The series was created by Smokebomb Entertainment, the award-winning digital division of Shaftesbury.
Featuring 8 five-minute narrative episodes, State of Syn takes place in a futuristic society where instability reigns but one commodity remains accessible to all: technology. The storyline follows Annika Drake (Staite) and her friends who, following the unexplained death of her father, are pulled into a twisted mystery surrounding his former company, emerging tech giant Psylosense. Now run by her father’s former business partner Aslin Kane (Hewlett), Psylosense is manufacturing a highly addictive new sensory experience called Vibe – a digital technology simulating a neurological condition called synesthesia – which is poised to become the new opiate of the masses.
