The SyFy Network has announced that it will air all four hours of The Phantom mini-series, which is based on Lee Falk’s classic adventure comic strip, on Sunday night June 20th, starting at 7pm (ET, PT).  The fact that all four hours of the new Phantom, which was originally conceived of as a 2-part pilot movie for a new on-going series, will air on just one night certainly does not bode well for the prospects of the new Phantom getting a continuing series unless the ratings are extremely high.


The new 4-hour Phantom saga, which was produced by RHI and Muse Entertainment, features a bulkier costume that is impervious to bullets and doubles the masked hero’s strength and speed (see “The Phantom on SyFy in June”).
