NBC has scooped up Sci Fi fan and Comic-Con regular, Rosario Dawson, who will star in a series for the Peacock.
Dawson will be seen in "Gemini Division," which will be segmented into 50 four-minute episodes for the summer lineup.
NBC will also offer it on NBC.com, along with "Woke Up Dead," produced by the same production shingle, Electric Farm Entertainment.
Like al the NBCU networks, NBC will integrate marketing on all their platforms to build viewer and brand loyalty. A handful of episodes will be previewed on the network and other NBC Universal platforms.
For her new series, Dawson plays a New York detective who's investigating the murder of her fiance. The trail leads to a conspiracy involving the creation of genetically engineered life forms called Simulants.
