Following the success of FX's "Fargo," adapting film into TV seems like all the rage. The latest project to hit the silver screen is "12 Monkeys," an upcoming 13-episode series based on the renowned Terry Gilliam film.

Like the film, which won Brad Pitt an Academy Award nomination, the TV series, which will air on Syfy, follows a man from a post-apocalyptic future who goes back in time to eradicate a deadly disease.

The trailer is a nice peek at what looks to be a refreshing and amusingly haunting sci-fi series. "12 Monkeys" will premiere on Syfy in January 2015. The pilot was written by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett. 

Check out the trailer for the series below.
