Joining recent original series acquisitions such as the hit "Lost Girl" and the upcoming "Primeval: New World" and "Sinbad," Syfy today announced it will premiere the time traveling police drama "Continuum" - Canada's highest-rated scripted basic cable series - beginning Monday, January 14 at 8PM (ET/PT).

"Continuum" stars Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the future who finds herself trapped in the present day. When a group of fanatical terrorists escapes their planned execution in 2077 by vaulting back in time to 2012, they inadvertently sweep along Kiera, a dedicated City Protective Services officer.

With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler, played by Erik Knudsen, Kiera infiltrates the local police department and forms an uneasy alliance with her new partner, detective Carlos Fonnegra, portrayed by Victor Webster. Though desperate to get back to her husband and son, Kiera concentrates on bringing down the terrorists before they change the course of history.

The January 14 premiere of "Continuum" will lead into the third season premieres of Syfy's hit series "Being Human" at 9PM and "Lost Girl" at 10PM.

Executive producers of "Continuum" are Simon Barry, Jeff King, Tom Rowe,, Pat Williams, and Reunion Pictures.

In addition to the first two seasons for on-air, Syfy has also acquired the U.S. home entertainment rights to "Continuum." Universal Studios Home Entertainment will handle the DVD distribution and are targeting a DVD release shortly after the season finale on Syfy.
