12 Monkeys Information

12 Monkeys is an upcoming American television series scheduled to air on Syfy starting January 16, 2015.

It's a science fiction mystery drama based on the 1995 movie of the same name, directed by Terry Gilliam, based in turn on Chris Marker's 1962 short film La Jete.

Cole will be helped by the brilliant virologist Cassandra Railly and a math genius with mental issues, Jennifer Goines.
