Exclusive Interview with Cameron Porsandeh for HelixInterview by Jamie RubyWritten by Jamie Ruby
Last month, Syfy premiered one of its newest series, Helix
, and they received a massive reaction, bringing in exceptionally high ratings for the network. The show follows a team of scientists from the CDC, led by Dr. Alan Farragut (Billy Campbell), who are brought to the Arctic Biosystems research facility to investigate a possible virus outbreak.
The creator of the mysterious new sci-fi thriller, Cameron Porsandeh, recently sat down with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision for an exclusive interview to talk about his series.
Porsandeh talked about how his journey to creating the series started. "I had an idea for a script and I pitched it to my agent, which was an interesting thing, because they liked the idea, and they said, "This is going to be a tricky sell; if you feel confident you should go ahead and do it." So it didn't go out with a pitch; I wrote it on spec, completely on spec. And I was really excited about it when I was done.
