(PR NewsChannel) / May 13, 2015 / NEW YORK 

syfy-logoSyfy announces Reactor, a new, weekly half-hour series debuting Thursday, July 16 at 11:30pm/10:30c. Airing during Syfy‘s new late-night programming block, which kicks off at 11pm with game show Geeks Who Drink, hosted and produced by Zachary Levi (Heroes Reborn, Chuck), Reactor’s 12-episode season will be filmed in front of a studio audience.

Hosted by comedian and genre superfan David Huntsberger, Reactor sits at the intersection of science fiction and pop culture, capturing and celebrating all the things sci-fi fans are talking about that week. Through Huntsberger’s unique and irreverent point-of-view, this fast-paced show will tackle everything hot in the genre – from movies and television to comics — via exclusive clips, the latest must-watch trailers, celebrity guests, comedic sketches and mash ups.






“With Reactor and Geeks Who Drink, Syfy now has a late-night destination with two seriously fun shows that celebrate the passion and spirit of science fiction fans,” said Heather Olander, SVP, Alternative Programming and Development, Syfy.

Huntsberger began his comedy career in 2002. A semi-finalist on NBC’s hit Last Comic Standing, he’s also appeared on Comedy Central’s long-running stand-up hit Premium Blend. Huntsberger’s weekly podcast, Professor Blastoff, debuted at #1 on iTunes, was voted #9 in Rolling Stones’ list of top podcasts, and was named to Entertainment Weekly’s ‘Must List.’  His comedy albums include: Humanitis, which was named Serious Comedy’s best of the year in 2011, and 2013’s Explosion Land, which debuted in the Top15 iTunes comedy charts.

Reactor is a production of Wilshire Studios and will be executive produced by Gary Auerbach, Brad Stevens and Boyd Vico.
