Breaking News - Sci Fi to Bow "Knights of Bloodsteel" in April

Had this in a newsletter. Can't wait to see it!

LOS ANGELES ( -- Sci Fi has booked "Knights of Bloodsteel," its latest mini-series event, for Sunday, April 19 and Monday, April 20 at 9:00/8:00c, network sources have confirmed to the site.

The four-hour project, previously known as both "Mirabilis" and "Dragons of Black Roc," stars David James Elliott, Natassia Malthe and Christopher Lloyd. It marks the cable channel's first mini-series since 2007's Emmy-winning "Tin Man."

Here's the network's official description:

"Once a paradise fueled by the all-powerful sorcery-grade metal known as bloodsteel, the distant land of Mirabilis begins to decay as supplies of the supernatural substance dwindle. The evil warlord Dragon Eye fights to gain control of the world's supply of bloodsteel, which he will use to rule Mirabilis. But, an ancient prophecy propels four ordinary citizens to battle Dragon Eye. Their quest is to find the fabled Crucible - source of all bloodsteel - before the corrupt forces of darkness destroy their world."

So what makes director Mike Rohl's upcoming apocalyptic two part mini-series, Impact, different from other post Deep Impact giant-rock-from-space films? Why, gravity fluctuations of course! It's actually kind of a cool concept. What if the moon got hit by a meteor (or a "brown dwarf" as the below synopsis calls it, heh) and not the earth as we're so used to seeing? How would such a cosmic misstep effect us here on the planet? Yes there's a certain Armageddon quality to the story as scientists send a team up to the moon to try and figure out how to fix the problem, but with its focus on people trying to cope with the disruptions of earth-bound anomalies, Impact might just prove to be an interesting addition to the ever growing genre. We should be learning more about Impact soon as the 14 million dollar production has recently been completed. It stars an all star cast of Natasha Henstridge, David James Elliott, the legendary James Cromwell and Steven Culp. Because it's coming from the same distributors as last years Lost City Raiders, I imagine it'll premiere on SCIFI as a 2-part event. No trailer yet unfortunately but we've got the whole synopsis and a large gallery of stills after the break. While the entire world watches the largest meteor shower in 10,000 years, a brown dwarf, hidden by the meteor field, smashes into the moon in a tremendous explosion of rock and debris. Fragments of the moon itself, penetrate Earth's atmosphere and make impact. Even though the initial damage is minimal, nerves are frayed throughout the planet. Then strange anomalies begin to manifest themselves on Earth. It starts small - cell phone disruptions, unusual static charges and odd tidal behavior.The world's leading scientists begin piecing together evidence that suggests the moon's properties, and its orbit, may have been permanently altered. Their fears are realized when the anomalies increase to the point where the effect of "simulated" gravity is being manipulated by increased electromagnetic surges coming from the moon. People, cars and other objects are rendered momentarily weightless in random, isolated areas around the globe. Alex, Maddie, Roland and the rest of their team soon discover something far worse - the moon's new orbit has put it on a collision course with Earth!The world now has 39 days to stop it or Earth, and all of mankind, will perish.
