Emily Rose to star in Syfy's 'Haven'

Series is based on Stephen King's novella 'Colorado Kid'

"ER" alumna Emily Rose has landed the lead in "Haven," Syfy's new supernatural drama series based on Stephen King's novella "The Colorado Kid."

The project, from E1 Entertainment, centers on Audrey Parker (Rose), a shrewd FBI agent with a lost past who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine, to solve the murder of a local ex-con only to discover that the curious enclave is a longtime refuge for people with supernatural powers that holds a lot of secrets, including to her own past.

Production on the 13-episode series is expected to start in the spring for a premiere on Syfy later this year.

Additionally, "Haven" will become the channel's first property to also be produced for Syfy pay channels around the world, with E1 handling international distribution.

"Haven" is executive produced by writers Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, showrunner Scott Shepherd, Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller and E1's John Morayniss and Noreen Halpern.

Rose, who also recurred on "Jericho" and "Brothers and Sisters" and co-starred on HBO's "John From Cincinnati," is repped by Domain and Forward.
