Syfy has released some new videos promoting Ronald D. Moore’s upcoming drama Helix, which is set to debut January 10. The above video gives us an overview of the plot, and features the cast as they discuss what’s in store for this drama, which looks like it’s a little bit thriller, a little bit horror and even a bit of a mystery as well.

Created by Cameron Porsandeh and executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Lynda Obst and Steven Maeda, Helix stars Billy Campbell as the leader of a team of CDC scientists who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a potential virus outbreak. As the trailers have teased, the situation is bad and appears to be getting out of hand.

The video below focuses a bit more on the virus that’s being investigated, and the effects it has on the people who come into contact with it.

One of the things the “Virus” video mentions is the mystery element of this show, as things aren’t quite what they seem. When I was on set in Montreal this fall, it was pretty clear that the cast and Porsandeh were trying to be very careful with what they said when discussing the plot, as there are certain elements that they couldn’t reveal. That's probably the case for most series, but I get the impression that Helix may have a few twists up its sleeve. The video below focuses on the numerous secrets set to be explored, including a mystery involving Hiroyuki Sanada’s character Dr. Hiroshi Hitaki. The video also teases some other spoilery subject that's bleeped out and redacted...



And in this one, the cast gives us a quick breakdown of who's who among the characters in this story:



The videos also remind us that Helix will premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Syfy on January 10 with limited commercial interruption.
