NEW YORK – August 21, 2013 – Syfy is expanding its growing slate of reality programming with Camera Ready, an all-new competition reality series from Mission Control Media (Face Off) now in development.

On Camera Ready, ten visionary costume designers will stretch imagination and artistry by competing in challenges to create works of costume art for film, television and music videos. Each week, the contestants will realize fantastical characters through their dazzling costume creations, incorporating non-traditional materials and technology – such as fiber optics – into some pieces.  The contestants will be judged by a panel of industry heavy-weights - from Oscar-winning costume designers, cutting-edge directors and avant-garde fashionistas – with one designer ultimately taking home the $100,000 grand prize.

Dwight D. Smith, Michael Agbabian and Derek Atherton serve as executive producers.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (, and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in more than 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)

    Are you Fracking Me? SyFy is going down the tube fast. Let’s forget about the crap movie Sharknado and other POS’s they have put out in the past few years, but they have had for years now Friday Night Smackdown. What does the WWF have to do with SyFy? Now they are adding reality crap. In just a few more years SyFy will have about as much SyFy as MTV has music videos.

    This is crap news.

    Which is why this channel–which used to be pretty cool–is now utter garbage.

    Outside of Continuum – which isn’t really their show, they get it from the Showcase channel in Canada – and Being Human–which is a UK remake (albeit a good one) – they have absolutely nothing.

    The CW has significantly better, and more science fiction than the Syfy channel.


  • Chris

    SyFy is a total joke.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Well…at least it’s not another ghost hunting show.

  • DeeAgeaux

    Continuum Being Human Defiance and Haven are good shows.

    Some of their mini-series are good.

    I don’t even watch their movies because every single one I have seen is crap.

    I don’t watch “reality tv” other than sports and cooking shows.

    I second that TazMan. I liked that channel when it was Scifi….it actually had some really good shows. So what is all this SyFy crap now. What does that even stand for?…certainly not science fiction.

    I am so sick of reality shows. SiFi at least doesn’t have bearded hillbillies on – yet. Cable use to be a refuge from network TV now network Tv is a refuge from cable. Of course that may be the plan – buy the cable networks put on crap and maybe people will go back to broadcast TV.
