Watch: First Trailer for Syfy Series '12 Monkeys' Promises Some of the Thrills From Terry Gilliam's Film

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.
