The Colin Ferguson led light-sci fi comedy will be taking the spot formely belonging to ultra dark and moody Battlestar Galactica, fridays at 10:00pm est. An interesting choice to be sure. As for the transition to the new monkicker, that will coincinde with the two hour premiere of the highly anticipated Warehouse 13 on Tuesday, July 7. On the ‘reality’ side of things, Ghost Hunters International will move to Wednesday’s at 8:00pm est becoming the lead-in for also returning Ghost Hunters at 9:00pm when both shows return on August 19th with new episodes.

Although the beach is evacuated before the big wave strikes, a group of lifeguards and a crew of construction workers are stranded in the high water and have to fight the sharks to get to dry land.

High Plains Invaders, starring James Marsters In the early 20th century, a small western mining town is invaded by giant insectoid alien creatures whose only mission is to mine uranium to fuel their spaceship but they’ll kill anyone or anything that gets in their way. After they devastate the town, it’s up to a retired outlaw to lead a small group of survivors in fighting the ‘bugs.’

Hellhounds, directed by Rick Schroeder After his bride is poisoned at their wedding, a young Greek warrior risks a journey to Hades to rescue her from the God of the Underworld and bring her back to life. What he doesn’t know is that the best friend who accompanies him is the man who killed her in a jealous rage.

Sand Serpents, starring Jason Gedrick At an isolated Taliban outpost in Afghanistan, a small platoon of US soldiers faces a danger far greater than fanatical rebels giant worm-like creatures that come up through the sand and devour everything in their path. Their inexperienced lieutenant has to lead them across the treacherous desert to a rendezvous point where an army helicopter will pick them up but not all of them are going to make it.
