The annual Syfy Channel Upfront is always fun — breezy presentations, a packed purple carpet and good drinks and finger food. At this year’s event the big news was the live action/videogame crossover series Defiance, which premieres tonight at 9 PM eastern. But there were other buzzworthy announcements as well, including the new Ronald D. Moore-produced series Helix, a tale of lunar colonization called High Moon, the fourth season renewal of Being Human and the upcoming documentary series Cosworld (about hot cosplayers) and Fandemonium (celebrating nerdhood), among many other announcements. A.D.D. will provide coverage soon. Right now, here’s the annual photo gallery!
