We’ve just heard from SCI FI that Joe Flanigan (Stargate Atlantis) and Ivan Sergei (Charmed, Crossing Jordan) have landed guest starring roles on the new series Warehouse 13. The new original one-hour series stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Allison Scagliotti and previously announced guest star CCH Pounder. The series is currently in production in Toronto and will premiere Tuesday, July 7 with a two-hour pilot starting at 9:00PM.
Warehouse 13 follows two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie (Rubinek) charges Pete (McClintock) and Myka (Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself.
Joe Flanigan will be playing the handsome and wealthy Jeff Weaver, whose charm captures Myka’s interest, but he finds himself under Pete and Myka’s scrutiny when a sculpture on which he bid vanishes in an impossible heist.
Ivan Sergei will be appearing as Ross, an EMT from Unionville, New York. Ross and some of the other townspeople begin to display bizarre behavioral symptoms – involuntary (and potentially dangerous) expressions of their subconscious desires.
Warehouse 13 is produced for SCI FI by Universal Cable Productions. The executive producer is Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) who also serves as showrunner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is also an executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice, Rescue Me) is co-executive producer and director of the pilot; and Stephen Surjik (Monk, Burn Notice) is producer/director of the series.
Congratulations to Joe and Ivan. I know their fans, myself included, will be pleased to see both of them on the screen again. Stay tuned to Pop Culture Zoo for more on Warehouse 13 in the next few days!
