On Superstition, SYFY mixes up a Cajun Buffy-meets-Six Feet Under stew (jambalaya?)

So what’s Superstition all about?
New Orleans and its swampy surroundings has been the setting for all kinds of supernatural-y stories over the years: True Blood, Ann Rice’s vampire tales, The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans. The list goes on and on.

And now we have SYFY’s Superstition, in which the town of La Rochelle – located on the outskirts of New Orleans, where we’re told that “superstitions, ancient myths, and legends are true.”

Our entrée into this world is the Mosley family, who run a graveyard and funeral home, which as luck would have it puts them in prime position to both do normal post-life services that we’re all familiar with, but to also perform “afterlife care” for folks knocked by the “infernals,” or demon-y creatures of the dark and such.

So basically sounds like a Hellmouth type situation (see: Slayer, Buffy the Vampire) with a goodly dash of Cajun spice with a Six Feet Under-like kicker with the funeral home bit. Sounds like a good time to me .

Superstition preview video for “Taking Care of Business”
You know things are going to get cray on a show like Superstition. How cray, you ask? You’re in luck, as we portray the cray (yes, I just coined that phrase and expect full trademark and credit from here on in) in a video preview served up just for you:

Mario Van Peebles has been in a lot of stuff
Did we mention that Mario Van Peebles, the MVP himself, is in Superstition? He plays a character called Isaac Hastings. Yep, best believe. Peebles has been in lots of stuff over the years, of course. Recently, he was quite good as a prosecutor on the mostly quite good Bloodline, on Netflix. He also stood out on the sorely underrated Damages a little while back. Probably have to go back to 1991’s New Jack City, though, for Peeble’s all time iconic role, playing a character called Stone.

Superstition question
Have you ever heard of a family-run graveyard? I mean I guess that could be a thing, but just doesn’t really seem like a thing, right?

Viewing Info
Superstition’s series premiere, entitled “Taking Care of Business,” is on Friday, October 20th, 2017 at 10/9c on SYFY.
