Based on the film...
SyFy has greenlit a pilot for a TV series based on 12 Monkeys. IGN reports that the channel have given the pilot, which is based on the 1995 Terry Gilliam time travel film, the go-ahead. The plan is for an hour-long show that, similar to the film, follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.
The pilot was written by Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett, who have written for The CW's Nikita. Production begins in November.
