CBC has announced the acquisition of ASCENSION, a new six-episode, Canadian-produced original drama commissioned by American television network Syfy. A co-production of Lionsgate and Sea to Sky Studios in association with Quebec-based Lift Off Productions and Blumhouse Productions, ASCENSION began production this week in Montreal, with an official premiere on CBC scheduled for November 2014. 
 
Viewers will be transported to 1963 to watch the drama unfold as the U.S. government launches a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.
