An extended version of the pilot premiered exclusively on DVD and digital download on April 21, 2009.[1] The first season debuted on January 22, 2010, on Syfy in the U.S., Space in Canada, and Sky1 in the UK, running nine episodes, including the two-hour pilot, before going on a mid-season hiatus. The second half of the first season (Season 1.5) began airing on October 5, 2010, on Syfy and Space.

On October 27, 2010, Syfy canceled the show, citing low ratings, and pulled the remaining five episodes of the series from its broadcast schedule.[2] The series continued to air as scheduled on Space, finishing with the series finale on November 30, 2010.[3] The remaining episodes were released on DVD in the U.S. on December 21, 2010[4] and aired on Syfy in a burn off marathon on January 4, 2011.[5]
