Watch The Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t Trailer 

Syfy has released the official trailer for its first original documentary Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t, which will be making its world premiere as the opening film for Syfy Fan Fast.

Directed by David Oster, Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t follows the titular rebel who, at the beginning of his career, was turned away by numerous comic publications. He decided that since no one was recognizing his talent, he would take matters in his own hands. McFarlane eventually became the CEO of McFarlane Toys and President of Image Comics and Legendary Artist. The docu provides an in-depth view behind the mastermind that brought us Spawn and some of Marvel Comic’s most well-known artwork. It paints a portrait of his struggles to navigate and upend the status quo in the comic and toy industries.

McFarlane will also take part in the Syfy Presents: The Untold Tales of Todd McFarlane panel during Comic-Con@Home, set for July 23 at 5:00 p.m. ET on Comic-Con’s YouTube channel.

The documentary will be released on Saturday, July 25 at 11:00 p.m. ET on Syfy’s YouTube channel, Syfy.com, and On Demand. Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t is produced by Syfy Wire through the network’s partnership with online content creation studio Tongal.

Syfy Fan Fest will take place between July 25-August 2, and will also include the Season 4 premiere of Wynonna Earp, a special extended episode of the new hit series The Great Debate, a Syfy Wire After Dark original special, movie marathons, and more.

Happy Season 2 Returns To SYFY On March 27, 2009

SYFY has released the first trailer for Happy! Season 2, and it looks about as insane as you’d expect!

Weird Al Yankovic is just the latest guest star to join Happy! Season 2, joining the likes of Ann-Margret and wrestler Big Show.

Based on the New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name, Happy! follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt). In the must-see finale, Sax and Happy are locked in a climatic confrontation to rescue Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo) from Very Bad Santa’s (Joseph Reitman) lair, as Merry (Lili Mirojnick) sets out to save Amanda (Medina Senghore) from a far more powerful foe. The series also stars Ritchie Coster (Blue) and Patrick Fischler (Smoothie).

The series returns March 27.

Syfy Adapting Frank Miller’s DC Comics Series Ronin

Syfy is developing Frank Miller’s DC Comic series Ronin. Following Darren Aronofsky’s attempt to remake the samurai drama for the big screen, Syfy will produce DC’s six-issue comic series Ronin as a potential miniseries.

From Warner Horizon Television and DC Entertainment, Ronin was written and drawn by Miller (Sin City, 300). The comics, which were published every six weeks between 1983-84, centers on a legendary warrior — the Ronin, a dishonored, masterless 13th century samurai — who is mystically given a second chance to avenge his master’s death. He finds himself suddenly reborn in a futuristic and corrupt 21st century New York where he must defeat ancient demon Agat, the reincarnation of his master’s killer.

Syfy’s takes place eight centuries after a Japanese Ronin samurai failed to protect his master from a demon. He awakens in a futuristic, nihilistic New York in the body of Billy, a medical experiment. Now Billy/Ronin is chasing the demon, which has reawakened. Both parties want control of a sword with magical properties and will stop at nothing to get it back.

A search is under way for a writer and the exact number of episodes in the Syfy miniseries has not yet been determined.
