Based on characters from the theatrical film Legion (2010) and with a pilot directed by Scott Stewart (who also directed the film), the epic new Syfy fantasy series Dominion is set in the year 25 A.E. (After Extinction), in a post-apocalyptic city called Vega (formerly Las Vegas), where an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel (Carl Beukes), has waged a war of possession against mankind, and archangel Michael (Tom Wisdom) has turned against his own kind to side with humanity.  As the war between the human race and the angels escalates, a rebellious young soldier named Alex (Chris Egan) struggles to help save the world.

During this recent interview to promote this intriguing new show, executive producer/showrunner Vaun Wilmott and actor Chris Egan talked about how they got involved with Dominion, how much of the mythology from the film will carry over to the show, what this world is like, 25 years after the events of the film, the challenges in bringing this story from the big screen to television, dealing with the special effects and stunts, the amount of CGI versus practical sets, and how far ahead the story has been planned out.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
