SyfyAt first glance, it looks like a blend of the forthcoming apocalyptic film 2012, and the mysteries and intrigue of The Da Vinci Code. Syfy is developing a six-hour mini-series inspired by the Mayan calendar; you know, the one that's the inspiration for all that "end of the world in 2012" rhetoric we'll start hearing more and more often.

In our hour of greatest need, they will reveal themselves and perform basketball stunts to warm the world's hearts. We'll chuck our nuclear arsenals into the deepest reaches of space and sing "We Are the World" with our new friends!
