Welcome backstage to the press room at the 2017 Candys, or as they’re also called, the Canadian Screen Awards. The afternoon started with the red carpet arrivals, and now we’ve moved on to the live telecast where the stars are coming back to chat.
The 69th Festival de Cannes is just over a week away, running from May 11 to 22, and leading up to the big, international film festival, Telefilm Canada has put together a cheat sheet for the Canadian talent to watch this year, including directors Xavier Dolan, and Kim Nguyen; producers Nancy Grant, and Allison Black; and actors Tatiana Maslany, and Sophie Nélisse.
At the end of the second season, Orphan Black had opened up about a lot of the secrets that we had only glimpsed before, including the military origins of the clones, and the existence of male clones as well, but it was really just the start of opening the proverbial Pandora’s box of secrets. Season three looks like it’s set to finally take us deeper into the backstory, as the old status quo gets torn apart.
The Clone Club can rejoice, because Space, Temple Street Productions, and BBC America announced yesterday that Orphan Black has started shooting the third season of the series in Toronto, which will premiere in spring 2015.
Press kits come and go on my desk–a few less than their used to be, before some companies started sending them electronically–and once in a while I get a real keeper; a collectible that I’m not likely to throw out or ignore. This week, the prize that arrived was the press kit for season two of Orphan Black, which airs on Space in Canada, and BBC America in the United States.
In the premier episode of the Media Box podcast, Editor-In-Chief W. Andrew Powell talks to Arrested Development star Michael Cera, and Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, new Blu-ray reviews of Cleopatra, A Good Day To Die Hard, and Identity Thief.
The season finale for Space and BBC America’s Orphan Black airs this Saturday, June 1 at 9:00 PM, and in it, Sarah (played by Tatiana Maslany) comes to a crossroads with her “former partner” Art (Kevin Hanchard), while she must also deal with the crazed Helena.
Tatiana Maslany is a friendly, down-to-earth powerhouse, and she is quickly on the path to become Canada’s next rising star, especially as her new series, Orphan Black, is set to debut this Saturday, March 30 on Space.
The series may not be on the air just yet, but people are already getting excited about Orphan Black, Space and BBC America’s upcoming series.
Vampires, werewolves, robots–and, yes, even a succubus–have all had their time on television in recent years, but clones? Not so much. That’s about to change though as Space and BBC America debut their original series, Orphan Black, and today they released their first full look at the new series.
