May 31, 2015: Dark Matter episode #101 review! The gang from the production office take over the bridge!

The advance reviews for Dark Matter are going to start rolling in.  Here’s one from Aimee Hicks at Dark Matter makes another must watch list.    15...Show More Summary

May 30, 2015: Akemi’s big hair day!

Inspired by Jodelle/Dark Matter’s FIVE, Akemi decided to try something a little different… So, whaddya think?  Who should she be cosplaying at the San Diego Comic Con? Maybe. Before heading in for her 8 hour hair sessions, Akemi and I entertained our friend Jessie – Canada’s future Prime Minster! Alas, I think this phage treatment may […]

May 29, 2015: Two weeks to the Dark Matter world premiere! A Jelly update!

“If this series not popular, I really can’t believe.” – Akemi last night after watching the producer’s cut of episode #113, our season finale. Her words echo the sentiments of my writing partner who said pretty much the same thing, in less economical fashion, after viewing prod cuts of our first two episodes: “So, having seen […]

May 28, 2015: 15 days to the Dark Matter premiere! Tell your friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances! Maybe a few strangers as well!

Last night, I watched Andy Mikita’s director’s cut of episode #113, the big season finale.  All I can say is: Whoa!  I envy all of you who’ll be coming into the show fresh when it premieres on June 12th.  Believe me, you’re in for such a treat. We’re not just going to surpass expectations, we’re […]

May 27, 2015: Another Dark Matter sneak peek! Don’t mess with the Zobot! More behind the scenes pics! What to expect from SyFy’s new space opera!

Well, whaddya know?  Our teaser trailer has quietly been racking up views and is nearing the 200k mark.  Let’s see if we can hit the quarter mill mark by the time Dark Matter premieres on June 12th (10:00 p.m. on SyFy!  Check your local listings!) “Do Androids dream of electric sheep? This one’s too busy beating people […]

May 26, 2015: Akemi! Dark Matter! And friends!

“Carnibal is eat the same species.” – Akemi on cannibalism. “Hello Kitty’s pet is cat so not carnibal but don’t you find strange?” – Akemi elucidating on the topic of cannibalism. “My stomach and back is touching.” – Akemi’s way of letting me know she’s hungry. “Wow. So depressing Facebook account ever.” – Akemi passing […]

May 25, 2015: The Dark Matter rollout! Introducing Melissa O’Neil as TWO!

Finishing up my overview of our wonderful cast, we finally come to the character of TWO. Here’s the breakdown that went out for the role: “AKA Boss Lady, AKA Portia Lin. NIKITA-ESQUE, BEAUTIFUL, SOFT- FEATURED. THE GROUP’S DE FACTO LEADER, SHE IS A MASTER FIGHTER and an unbelievably quick learner when it comes to any […]

May 24, 2015: The Jelly Update!

For a dog at death’s door, my 16 year old pug Jelly has been doing pretty well.  In fact, ever since we brought her back home to die last Friday after receiving a hopeless diagnosis from two local vets, she’s been animated as ever.  In fact, I’d be so bold as to say she bounced […]

May 23, 2015: The Dark Matter Deluge!

Whoa!  As our series premiere draws ever nearer (less than two weeks and counting!), things are really beginning to ramp up.  Check out all of the Dark Matter-related goodies…   …starting with this terrific interview by longtime Stargate supporter...Show More Summary

May 22, 2015: The Dark Matter rollout! Introducing Anthony Lemke as THREE!

When it came time to cast Dark Matter’s resident bad boy, this is the breakdown that went out for the role: “AKA Sunshine, AKA Marcus Boone. A TRUE BADASS, he is the flipside to One’s principled coin- which is why the two are often at odds, developing a (grudging) like-hate relationship over the course of their […]

May 21, 2015: The Dark Matter wrap party!

Check ’em out.  A day too late for the wrap party, but pretty awesome nevertheless – my custom-made Hieronymous Bosch Garden of Earthly Delights tie suit from The Knotty Tie Company (  I think I may follow up with a round of Salvador Dali this summer. Yes, last night was the Dark Matter season one wrap […]

May 20, 2015: And that’s a wrap on Dark Matter’s first season!

Annnnnnd we’re done!  More or less.  I’ve still got my producer cuts of episode #112 and #113 to complete, all the mixes to sit through, and visual effects to approve but, for all intents and purposes, production on Dark Matter’s first season is complete.  It’s hard to believe that this time last year, I honestly […]

May 18, 2015: Jelly…

Thanks to everyone who took the time to offer well wishes and words of support for my gal Jelly.  She seems to be back to her old sleepy/hungry/cantankerous self. Sadly, however, this rebound will be short-lived.  According to her latest rest results, she’s suffering from an antibiotic resistant infection that has spread through her intestines […]

May 18, 2015: The Dark Matter rollout! Introducing Zoie Palmer as The Android!

“Zoie!!!” is the reaction the Android elicits from my girlfriend every time she pops up on my laptop.  I’ve screened 11 of 13 prod cuts for Akemi and, to date, she loves the show, loves all of the characters, but is especially fond of Zoie’s Android – which leads me to believe that #zobot is going […]

May 17, 2015: Jelly

I was on set Tuesday night when I received a text from Akemi:  “Jelly’s very very sick.” That was one “very” too many.  I jumped in the car and rushed home, bundled Jelly up and delivered her to the emergency 24 hour animal hospital.  There she remained, overnight, while they ran a battery of tests. […]

May 16, 2015: The last days of production on Dark Matter’s first season!

Here’s hoping that, five years from now, I’ll be looking back on these photos of how it all began… Dark Matter Executive Producer, President of Prodigy Pictures, and our show’s #1 fan Jay Firestone surprises the Dark Matter Whisky/ey Club with its most impressive bottle to date: a sublime Balvenie 21 year old PortWood Finish Whisky.  It doesn’t get […]

May 15, 2015: And, that’s a wrap! Almost! Production on Dark Matter’s first season nears an end!

I can’t believe it.  After ten years developing it, several years trying to set it up, over ten months of prep and four months of production, we are finally done.  Today was our last main unit day on Dark Matter’s first season.  We’re off for the long weekend, come back to shoot a final day of second unit, […]

As the Dark Matter premiere draws ever closer, allow me to introduce you to our cast – and the characters they’ll be playing.  Today, let’s talk about Alex Mallari Jr., Dark Matter’s FOUR.

Continuing our Dark Matter rollout – today, we turn the spotlight to actress Jodelle Ferland and her character, FIVE. This was part of the casting breakdown that went out for the role: “AKA The Kid.
