12 Monkeys Gets 12-Episode Pick Up From Syfy

We're getting a full season of the new 12 Monkeys TV series from Syfy, which will help push the channel's slate of original scripted series forward (especially since we're losing Warehouse 13 and Being Human this year).

The series will be based on the French film La Jetee (which the Terry Gilliam movie was also inspired by). And will follow a time traveler, played by Aaron Stanford, who is sent back in time to stop a terrible plague that wipes out most of mankind.

Can't wait to see this pilot.
