The SyFy Channel has given the go ahead to 12 episodes of The Wil Wheaton Project, a summer series highlighting the world of science fiction, genre-related entertainment and gaming. The 30 minute show will be like the Entertainment Tonight of Science Fiction beginning Tuesday, May 27 on SyFy Channel.
Wheaton of course knows a thing or two about the genre after starring as Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation and various guest appearances on shows since. He has also been very popular at conventions and on social networks for years making this seem a natural.
Wil will host as well as serving as producer and co-creator. Learn more at Wil Wheaton’s Web Site.
