'Jane' Brings the Pain Friday the 13th
New show will follow Sci Fi's two 'Stargate' series
The Sci Fi Channel's latest original series "Painkiller Jane" will make its debut on Friday, April 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the heels of the mid-season returns of "Stargate SG-1" and "Stargate Atlantis."
DEA Agent Jane Vasco (Kristanna Loken) gets hired by a covert government agent to hunt down and capture "Neuros," genetically enhanced individuals with superhuman mind powers. But on her first foray, she suddently discovers that she's somewhat out of the ordinary as well. She has incredible regenerative powers that will heal any injury, no matter how large. Unfortunately, she still feels the pain associated with those injuries. Somehow, her strange ability is connected to the Neuros themselves.
The cast includes Noah Danby, Rob Stewart, Alaina Huffman and Sean Owen Roberts. Loken will serves as co-executive producer alongside showrunner Gil Grant ("24," "NCIS").
The show's freshman season will run for 22 one-hour episodes.
Loken is best remembered as the T-X, aka Terminatrix, in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." She also starred in the video game movie adaptation "BloodRayne." On the small screen, she guest-starred on the current season of "The L Word" and appeared on "Philly," "Law & Order, "Just Shoot Me," "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman."
