Trion Worlds' VP and SyFy president talk developing Defiance as a game and TV show

In a conversation at DICE this week, Nick Beliaeff, vice president of production at Trion Worlds, and Mark Stern, president of SyFy, discussed the history, trials and successes behind their upcoming Defiance collaboration.
