Matt Hastings is staying in the Syfy fold.
Hastings will serve in the same capacity on the series starring David Strathairn as a doctor who leads a government-backed team of “Alphas” — people with superhuman abilities — as they identify others with similar skills that pose a threat.
Hastings joins an executive team that includes new showrunner Bruce Miller, who replaced Ira Steve Behr three weeks after the cable network renewed the series for a second season. Alphas marks a reunion for Hastings with Miller, with whom he worked on Eureka.
Syfy opted to not move forward with a sixth season of Eureka in August, a week after it announced a six-episode final season of the Colin Ferguson starrer. Its final season will air later this year.
Alphas hails from Berman Braun, Universal Cable Productions and co-creators Zak Penn and Michael Karnow. Exec producers include Miller, Penn, BermanBraun’s Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein. Karnow is a co-EP.
Hastings, whose credits also include Drop Dead Diva and Painkiller Jane, is repped by APA, Gotham Group and Jackoway Tyerman.
