Syfy and Nick Cannon to Cret Sci-fi/Fantasy Sketch Competition Series

Syfy has partnered with Nick Cannon's NCredible Entertainment to develop a weekly one hour sci-fi/fantasy improv series.

The show will be taped in front of a live audience and feature two teams battling for the biggest laughs to win points and prizes. The "home" team will consist of 4-6 nationally known comedians. Each week they will compete against a different improv squad in various sci-fi/fantasy related sketches.

A nationwide casting call will occur later this summer to determine the "away" teams.

Nick Cannon and Michael Goldman will serve as executive producers.
