Here’s more information on Wynonna Earp, from Syfy:
“Wynonna Earp,” a new series based on the IDW comic created by Beau Smith, debuts on Friday, April 1 at 10PM (ET/PT) on Syfy. The 13-episode action-packed first season stars Melanie Scrofano (“Gangland”), Tim Rozon (“Being Human”), Shamier Anderson (“Defiance”) and Dominique Provost-Chalkley (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”).
“Wynonna Earp” follows the life of the great, great granddaughter (Scrofano) of famous lawman Wyatt Earp. After a troubled adolescence following the death of her father and the disappearance of her older sister Willa, Wynonna has inherited Wyatt’s mythic abilities and his famous gun – a Colt .45 pistol with a 12-inch barrel – along with his legendary old West enemies: revenant demons.
Now, as a special agent in the Black Badge Division (a top secret sector of the U.S. Marshals), and with the help of younger sister Waverly (Provost-Chalkley), boss Agent Xavier Dolls (Anderson) and notorious gunslinger Doc Holliday (Rozon), Wynonna is determined to find out what really happened to Willa, and put an end to the Earp curse once and for all.
“Wynonna Earp” was produced in Calgary by SEVEN24 Films, and distributed by IDW Entertainment. Emily Andras (Lost Girl, Killjoys) developed the series for television and will serve as executive producer and showrunner. SEVEN24’s Jordy Randall and Tom Cox will also serve as executive producers.
