Ira Steven Behr

Good news sci-fi fans, according to Deadline.com, Ira Steven Behr has joined up as executive producer/showrunner for Syfy’s newly picked up series, Alphas, alongside writer Zak Penn, BermanBraun’s Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein.

Alphas, from BerbanBraun, Universal Cable Productions and writers Zak Penn and Michael Karnow, stars David Strathairn and follows a team of ordinary citizens who possess extraordinary and unusual mental skills.

Behr is well known for his extensive sci-fi background, working on everything from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Start Trek: Deep Space Nine and USA’s sci-fi drama The 4400, as well as on the second season of Star’s series Crash. On Deep Space Nine, Behr wrote a total of 53 episodes and eventually rose to executive producer/showrunner for the series.

All in all, it sounds to me like Alphas is in good hands.
