Jeri Ryan ("Star Trek: Voyager," "Body of Proof") is set to join Syfy's newest original scripted series, "Helix," for a multi-episode arc, the network announced today. Ryan joins a cast led by Billy Campbell ("The Killing," Killing Lincoln) and Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine, 47 Ronin) on the 13-episode drama series, executive produced by Ronald D. Moore ("Battlestar Galactica," "Outlander"), Steven Maeda ("Lost," "The X-Files") (who is also showrunner) and Lynda Obst (Sleepless in Seattle, Contact).

"Helix" is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to the high-tech research facility Arctic Biosystems, to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind's salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel.

Campbell stars as Dr. Alan Farragut, leader of the Centers for Disease Control outbreak field team called upon to investigate and control a potential outbreak. Sanada also stars as Dr. Hiroshi Hatake, director of Arctic Biosystems and its mysterious viral research program.

Ryan will portray the beautiful and charismatic Constance Sutton, the Chief Operating Officer of Ilaria Corporation, owner of Arctic Biosystems, the research facility where the series takes place. Charming and savvy, Sutton is used to getting her way at any cost.

"Helix" also stars Kyra Zagorsky ("Supernatural") as Dr. Julia Walker, Mark Ghanimé ("Emily Owens, M.D.") as Major Sergio Balleseros, Jordan Hayes (House at the End of the Street) as Dr. Sarah Jordan, Meegwun Fairbrother as Daniel Aerov, Catherine Lemieux (White House Down) as Dr. Doreen Boyle and Neil Napier (Riddick) as Dr. Peter Farragut.

"Helix" is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Kaji Productions and Lynda Obst Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Jeffrey Reiner is directing the premiere episode.
