September 19, 2017: In a Hold-Your-Breath Holding Pattern! Here, have a script!

I mean, seriously.  I respect the need for due diligence, a desire to do a thorough analysis before making a decision.  But could we pick up the pace here? As another day comes and goes without word, my writerly mind goes places.  Have they forgetten about us?  Did the individual we were talking to go […]

September 18, 2017: Deadline Man Walking!

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.” – Douglas Adams Me = Reality = For those of you wondering, our deadline to hear back was Friday.  Then, the weekend at the latest.  Then, today at the absolute latest because, tomorrow, we have to start wrapping out our second […]

September 16, 2017: Dark Matter fandom lights up The Raza – and twitter!

Well, that was fun.  And hugely successful.  Again and as always, thanks to YOU ALL.  We trended and held in the U.S., hit #1 in Canada, and once again lit up twitter with our #LightTheRaza hashtag.  Joining our ranks and making their voices heard were, once again, friends and supporters from the realms of television, […]

September 14, 2017: We can do this!

In fact, we ARE doing it.  All that online passion – the tweets, retweets, tagging and hash tagging – is having an effect. It’s impressing some, concerning others, but surprising all.  It’s thanks to you that we are where we are, with three potential new partners in deep discussion.  As I’ve been saying all along, […]

September 11, 2017: Top 10 Most Devastating Cancellations!

Since we’re on the subject, I thought I’d list my personal Top 10 Most Devastating Cancellations… 10. Deadwood To many, it was an acquired taste, but David Milch’s anti-western was unlike another.  Although I wasn’t totally won over at first, the show gradually became tops of my viewing list.  There was talk of some follow-up […]

September 10, 2017: Dark Matter Fandom Full Steam Ahead!

Alright, Team Raza, we are heading into perhaps the most important week in Dark Matter history.  On the docket are not one, not TWO, but THREE  Dark Matter-related “events” that could turn things around for our little show. People constantly ask me “What are the chances?” and I demur, not wishing to set expectations, but […]

September 9, 2017: Dark Matter fans Rock the Raza…and twitter!

In a word: Wow!  Going into last night’s scheduled tweetfest, I was hoping we could double the numbers of the preceding dry-runs that tallied somewhere in the area of 29k-30k tweets.  Well, Dark Matter fans stepped up enmasse and did better.  MUCH better.  We didn’t just double those numbers.  Hell, we didn’t even triple those […]

September 8, 2017: Dark Matter fans having an impact and making a difference!

Here’s the update: We’re talking to some very interested parties.  They really like the show, but really LOVE its passionate, pre-established fanbase.  It’s a double bonus for them: getting an awesome series that comes with its own fervent following. Yes, Dark Matter’s fate may rest on financial numbers and contractual clauses, but fan metrics will […]

September 7, 2017: Family, Friendship, and Fandom!

So I’ve been taking meetings with various production companies, looking ahead to my next project (hopefully not for another two years) and when the conversation turns to Dark Matter, the response from those I’ve met has been bewilderment and sympathy.  Solid ratings, a strong creative and modest licensing fee should have translated to a pickup and […]

September 6, 2017: Dark Matter fandom, at your battle stations!

The odds may be long and time may be short, but people are taking notice.  I received a call yesterday from an old friend who has put me in touch with some interested parties.  Although a positive development, one of the biggest hurdles we now face is the various pre-existing deals that complicate matters.  For […]

September 5, 2017: Dark Matter fans get ready to storm the castle!

Last night – Jeff Teravainen (Lieutenant Anders), me, Tamsen McDonough (Lucy), Thom Allison (Preemptively), and Sean Baek (Fancy Lee).  Sadly, this the closest we’ll ever come to that proposed Dark Matter/Killjoys crossover. Okay, here’s the latest on this Friday night’s tweet storm.  Apparently, the plan is to rewatch Dark Matter’s first episode at the appointed […]

September 4, 2017: The Dark Matter latest!

A glimmer of hope!  I’ve heard that executives at a few of the other broadcast options we are reaching out to have taken note of the huge fan response.  The tweets, the comments, even the petitions (https://t.co/5bqcMXdpSI – which, frankly,  won’t convince Syfy to change their minds but still serves a great purpose) have caught […]

September 3, 2017: Dark Matter fandom unleashed!

Whoa!  I’ve already written about how blown away I was at the response we received following the news of the cancellation, but Dark Matter fandom continues to amaze.  Witness, for instance, this – https://t.co/5bqcMXdpSI A petition in support of the show has amassed over 15k signatures in 48 hours.  I had a cast member point […]

September 2, 2017: Informing and Updating Dark Matter Fans!

I’d like to express my appreciation to everyone who reached out over the past twenty-four hours or so to express their anger, sadness, and gratitude after hearing about the cancellation.  As I wrote on twitter: “I am both touched and astounded by your passion, your loyalty, and your white hot relentless rage.” Today, I’d like […]

September 1, 2017: Dark Matter Cancelled

It is with great sadness that I confirm the news.  Syfy has cancelled Dark Matter after three seasons. To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement. I’ll save my comments and field your questions in a future blog entry.  For today, I just want to extend a heartfelt thanks to my amazing crew, […]

August 31, 2017: Touchdown Toronto!

Well, I’m back in Toronto.  Now what? Our departure from Vancouver was bittersweet but otherwise uneventful.  We woke up at 4:15 a.m., did one final sweep of the house, left a note for the new owners along with a nice box of chocolates, then caught a cab and the 7:25 a.m. flight out of town. […]
