NBCUniversal-owned pay-TV network Syfy has partnered with comedian and Grace and Frankie actor Baron Vaughn to tackle the nerd world’s most pressing questions.

Produced by B17 Entertainment, an Industrial Media company, Syfy Wire’s The Great Debate (12 x 30 minutes) will feature Vaughn and his robot sidekick, DB-8, as they bring a panel of celebrities and leading minds in “geekdom” together to debate burning questions regarding science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comics.

The series is based on the live panel that has featured at the San Diego and New York Comic Con.

B17 Entertainment’s Rhett Bachner and Brien Meagher executive produce alongside T.J. Chambers, who also serves as showrunner.

Season one of SYFY Wire’s The Great Debate will begin production in Los Angeles this March and is expected to premiere Summer 2020.
