Si Fi Channel has greenlit a full 13-episode season of Sanctuary, a drama that originated online (as the first-ever hi-def Web series, no less) and stars the Stargate world's Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, a woman on a quest to protect "strange creatures that walk the earth." Tapping is exec-producing the TV port along with SG-1 writer-producer Damian Kindler and producer-director Martin Wood, and Sam Egan.

Despite scoring this plum gig, Tapping will guest on at least several Stargate Atlantis episodes next season.

Sanctuary will be the first TV series to shoot live-action actors against "virtual set pieces," à la 300 and Sin City.

I've got Logan's Run now stuck in my head. Grr.
