Warehouse 13

A mysterious bleeding stone mask possesses a museum employee while the President is visiting. In the aftermath, Secret Service agents Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) and Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) are transferred to a super-secret detail in South Dakota. Working for the seemingly immortal Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder), they're tasked with tracking down and neutralizing various artifacts that have taken on supernatural aura.

The premise to SyFy's newest show is familiar by now (The X-Files, Men in Black, The Middleman), but I'll watch for smart writing from the likes of Jane Espenson and David Simkins acted naturally by McClintock, Saul Rubinek, and Kelly.
