TORONTO (May 20, 2015) – Space takes its rightful place in the far reaches of the galaxy with the premiere of Canadian series, DARK MATTER, Friday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET. Produced by Prodigy Pictures and created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, the one-hour series shot in Toronto follows the crew of a derelict spaceship who awaken from stasis, with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal, and hidden secrets. DARK MATTER is created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, the team behind the Dark Matter graphic novel and the fan-favourite STARGATE franchise.
DARK MATTER’s crew are One (Marc Bendavid, BITTEN), the charming, moral centre of the crew; Two (Melissa O’Neil, Broadway’s Les Misérables), the tough and determined leader of the group; Three (Anthony Lemke, 19-2), the mercenary who looks out for only himself; the calmly ruthless and stoic Four (Alex Mallari Jr., Robocop); Five (Jodelle Ferland, The Cabin in the Woods), the team’s youngest member with a skill for mechanics and a mysterious ability; the low-key Six (Roger Cross, MOTIVE), a man of integrity; and The Android (Zoie Palmer, LOST GIRL), an outsider among the ship’s human passengers yet an indispensable member who possesses control over the ship’s systems.
In the premiere episode of DARK MATTER (Friday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET), the crew searches for answers leading them to a rebellious, off-world mining colony and a shocking revelation. Episode 2 of DARK MATTER (Friday, June 19 at 10 p.m. ET) follows the debut of Space original action adventure series, KILLJOYS, at 9 p.m. ET.
