Syfy’s upcoming buzzworthy Ron Moore project ‘Helix‘ has yet to shoot a single frame of official footage, but you’d never know it from the buzz and advertising floating around Comic-Con 2013. Supporting the spread of ‘Helix’ is the first major casting announced today, that ‘The Killing‘ star Billy Campbell will take the lead role in the sci-fi thriller, which has also issued a brand-new teaser!

Deadline first revealed the casting, namely that Campbell would play the leading role of Dr. Alan Farragut, an emotionally troubled CDC pathologist. Farragut has recently endured and continues to get over a failed marriage, wherein his wife had an affair with his brother, the same brother who now needs his help after becoming infected with a deadly disease.

Produced by Sony Pictures TV, directed by David Slade (‘Hannibal,’ ‘Breaking Bad‘), and written by Cameron Porsandeh, Moore’s ‘Helix’ follows a team of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak at an Arctic research facility who find themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation. Under showrunner Steven Maeda (‘LOST,’ ‘CSI: Miami’) the series will start production this summer for likely late 2013 debut.

The series also released another creepy new teaser, following the imagery of the first in featuring a black ooze that spreads and seemingly escapes from a research facility. Check out the teaser below, and stay tuned for the latest from Ron Moore’s new Syfy series!
