The comedic drama follows two agents -- a man and woman -- as they're given a "promotion" to head up the hush-hush "Warehouse 13" in South Dakota. Facility is home to a collection of strange materials collected by the government. The pair are charged with hunting down missing objects and discovering new ones -- and then bringing them back to the vaults.
Just as a romance starts to develop between the two lead characters, one of the mysterious artifacts brings the female FBI agent's dead partner back to life -- creating quite the bizarre love triangle.
The two-hour drama will shoot later this fall for a potential series slot next summer. Universal Media Studios is behind the project written by Rockne O'Bannon, Jane Espenson and D. Brent Mote.
According to Sci Fi original programming exec VP Mark Stern, Warehouse 13 arose directly out of the channel's mandate to expand the scope of its original fare in order to reach wider audiences, including women.
"This plays into our agenda," Stern said. "It's set in the present, it celebrates imagination, yet it's meant to broaden out our audience reach."
