Syfy has put in development Clandestine, a drama produced by Universal Cable Prods. Written by actor-writer Todd Stashwick and artist Dennis Calero, Clandestine is described as a swash-buckling space drama/adventure and revolves around mercenaries who masquerade as part of an Intergalactic fleet. John Shiban (Hell On Wheels) is supervising the script and is attached as executive producer, with Stashwick and Calero co-executive producing.

The project stems from an option at UCP had on Stashwick & Calero’s online comic Devil Inside. Stashwick and Calero began collaborating while working together on NBC’s Heroes — Calero was drawing the online comic and Stashwick was recurring on the series’ final season. Stashwick’s acting credits also include The Riches and Justified. He is with APA and Meghan Schumacher Management. ICM-repped Calero helped develop Xmen Noir for Marvel Comics and is currently working with famed horror writer Stephen King.
