Via Press Release:
SEXY SUPERNATURAL DRAMA SERIES LOST GIRL WILL PREMIERE ON SYFY MONDAY, JANUARY 16 AT 10PM
NEW YORK – December 12, 2011 – Syfy will premiere the sexy supernatural drama series Lost Girl on Monday, January 16, at 10PM (ET/PT), immediately following the second season return of Being Human at 9PM.
Anna Silk (The Ghost Whisperer) stars as seductress Bo, a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death.
In the premiere episode, Bo discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend who pass as humans while secretly feeding off them. Faced with choosing between an allegiance to the Dark or Light Fae clans, Bo takes the middle path between the human and Fae worlds while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
Lost Girl co-stars Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson, a homicide detective and Bo’s love interest; Ksenia Solo as Kenzi, Bo’s confidante; Zoie Palmer as Lauren, a doctor who competes for Bo’s heart; Rick Howland as Trick, the mysterious bartender at The Dal Riata Tavern, and K.C. Collins as Hale, Dyson’s partner on the force.
Notable guest stars include Emmanuelle Vaugier as “The Morrigan,” the leader of the Dark Fae.
This series is developed and produced by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase.
