The SCI FI Channel's new original series Painkiller Jane about a covert government agent (played by Kristanna Loken), who is impervious to permanent injury, if not to pain, will debut on Friday, April 13th at 10 pm (ET, PT).  Originally slated to premier in January, the April 13th debut of the 22-episode Painkiller Jane and the SCI FI Channel's new Friday night lineup demonstrates that, at the very least, the network's programmers are not afflicted with triskaidekaphobia.


Painkiller Jane, which is based on a comic book created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada, will have the anchor leg of the SCI FI Channel's Friday night schedule following the mid-season return of Stargate SG-1 at 8 pm and Stargate Atlantis at 9.
