The four will work with New Zealand-born actor Grant Bowler, who was previously announced as a lead in the show, which is being billed as the first to unite television and Massively Multiplayer Online gaming. The pilot is being directed by Scott Stewart and written-produced by Rockne O'Bannon, Kevin Murphy and Michael Taylor. Murphy serves as show-runner.

"Set in the near future, 'Defiance' introduces a completely transformed planet Earth, inhabited by the survivors of a universal war," Syfy said in a release Wednesday. "Forced to co-habitate, the disparate group struggles to build a new society among the devastation. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story."

The Syfy series and Trion's multi-platform shooter MMO game are to debut simultaneously on a date yet to be determined.
