Hulu picks up that sci-fi web series chock full of Stargate alums

Remember that Blade Runner-ish web series State of Syn we told you about, which was made up mostly of former Stargate stars? Well, its audience is about to get a lot bigger.

Online video service Hulu has landed a distribution deal with the studio that created the shorts, Smokebomb Entertainment, which will bring the full run of the unique sci-fi series to the popular platform.

The deal includes all eight episodes (with a run time of approximately 5 minutes each), which will debut on Jan. 18 in the U.S. The dystopian hacker series has an awesome, comic-book look, and the first two episodes were a fun ride. 

The series stars Jewel Staite (Stargate Atlantis), David Hewlett (Atlantis’ Rodney McKay) and Rainbow Francks (Atlantis’ Aiden Ford). The opening narration is also provided by Atlantis alum Torri Higginson (aka former expedition leader Elizabeth Weir). So, yeah, that’s a lot of connections.

If the series does any good, here’s hoping it comes back for a second season — because it’s always nice to see the gate-hopping gang back together. What do you think of the show?
