If you're a Stephen King fan, you might be tuning in to watch Haven on SyFy last night. If you aren't a King fan and are going to watch, you probably didn't know that Haven is based off one of Stephen King's novels. The novel is one of his smaller ones, actually - it has nowhere near the recognition of King's other recent works, like Duma Key or Under the Dome. It's a little novel called The Colorado Kid, and it originally didn't have anything supernatural about it. That's what made it one of King's more unique works - unlike his other works, which included everything from parallel worlds to aliens to living cars, The Colorado Kid was a straight crime novel - no monsters, no supernatural, nothing. Haven is just the opposite. So what caused the change in the content of The Colorado Kid to Haven? To Read More Click here .
Watch a sneak peek of the series premiere of the new Syfy series HAVEN titled âWelcome to Havenâ which airs on Friday July 9 10:00 PM ET/PT on SyFy. Series Synopsis: Based on the novella âThe Colorado Kidâ from renowned author Stephen King, âHavenâ is a new Syfy series that follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine to solve the murder of a local ex-con. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her at the epicenter of activity in the curious enclave - which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people with a remarkable range of supernatural abilities. Among the townspeople are local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), who eventually becomes Audreyâs partner, and the mysterious and charming Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour). Source & Preview
Haven, Syfy's new supernatural detective drama, makes its debut this Friday, and the channel is doing everything they can to show that their original series is worth a look. The thriller is loosely based on the Stephen King mystery novella, The Colorado Kid, but the show's creators have opted to ditch traditional cop drama conventions and instead give the townspeople of Haven a wide range of supernatural abilities. The first season will follow FBI agent Audrey Parker, played by Emily Rose (ER), as she arrives in Haven and begins to discover that everything is not as it seems in the quaint seaside community. IGN participated in a conference call in which the series' stars, Rose and Lucas Bryant ("Nathan Wournos"), and executive producing team Jim Dunn and Sam Ernst (The Dead Zone) sat down to shed some light on Haven. Having a project with the Stephen King label attached to it brings its own set of heightened expectations. Sam Ernst, who scripted the pilot with Jim Dunn, explained their approach to the King material. To Read More Click Here .

"In this job, there's no such thing as no such thing." That clever quip gives us summer Syfy in a nutshell. As spoken by Warehouse 13's glib Secret Service hero Pete Lattimer (the genial Eddie McClintock) to his foxy partner Mika Bering (Joanne Kelly) while both are plastered to a Victorian ceiling by some anti-gravity device or other, we are served the fantastic with a side order of whimsy, with very little ever taken seriously. Warehouse 13 is sci-fi that just wants to be liked, tasty as it goes down but about as long-lasting as a swirl cone from an ice-cream truck on a 90-plus degree day. And just about as welcome for those seeking jaunty escapism during the summer. It was an instant hit a year ago, premiering the same night the former Sci Fi Channel took on its peculiar new name. Far from suffering an identity crisis, Syfy has flourished with this kind of light entertainment. Besides Warehouse, which returns for a second season Tuesday night (9/8c), Syfy launches the fourth season of the equally fanciful Eureka Friday night (9/8c), pairing it with the new but very familiar series Haven (10/9c), a dreary example of a channel so in love with its own success that it dips from the well of sameness once too often. It's Eureka without inspiration, minus the "wow" factor. It barely rates even a "huh?" To Read More Click Here .

Let's go over all the elements one needs for a Stephen King book-to-TV adaptation. Sleepy, sorta-eerie east coast town? Check. A cast of characters whose secrets have yet to be uncovered? Check. A collection of strange occurrences that no one can really explain? You'd better believe it. SyFy/Canwest's offering, 'Haven', which is based on Stephen King novella 'The Colorado Kid', has all these elements and more. TV Squad visited the set of 'Haven', which is filming this summer just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the towns of Chester and Lunenburg. These small, romantic-looking towns are playing the part of Haven, Maine, the central locale of the TV show. With harbors and inlets aplenty, Chester and Lunenberg are boating and sailing towns, which is a definite plus considering how big a role boats play in 'Haven'. To Read More Click Here .
