Posts Tagged ‘#AfterDark’

I work in a very strange, unpredictable business.  Three years ago, I was 100% certain that Dark Matter was dead and I was poised to go into production on another show I had developed.  Within the span of 24 hours, that other show was dead and Dark Matter was suddenly a go.  You just…never know.

The fact is, despite my fairly positive outlook on the subject, there’s not guarantee Dark Matter will come back for a fourth season – and no guarantee that if it does, I’ll be coming back with it.  I mean, who knows?  Three months from now, I could be all like –

So it’s always a good idea to hedge your bets.  Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.  And, as far as worst goes, it probably won’t be all that bad: maybe another show, maybe L.A., maybe the impetus I need to finally cash out of the Vancouver real estate market and buy that place in Tokyo!

Time will tell.

Also, ratings!  So get the word out.  Dark Matter premieres on Syfy and Space Channel on Friday June 9th with a double episode premiere starting at 8:00 p.m. (after which the show returns to its regular 9:00 p.m. time slot for June 16th).  And then Monday June 12th at 8:00 p.m., Syfy UK will be airing their own season 3 double bill.

AND, immediately following that double bill, will be the premiere of After DarkDark Matter’s very own after show…

Each episode brings together cast, crew, fans and experts to discuss storylines, go behind the scenes, and debate what’s next for the series’ protagonists.


The show will be made available to American and Canadian Dark Matter fans on Space.ca and Syfy.com

Speaking of Syfy.com, head on over to check out their video highlight package of the show’s greatest moments:

Agree?  Disagree?  What’s missing?


It’s coming!  I hear they’ll have a version to show us next week!


An early version will be sent my way for review tonight – and it’s apparently 14 minutes long!

Today, the random Dark Matter season 3 sneak peek screen capture generator selects…

How much does the gang at Syfy International love Dark Matter and Dark Matter fandom?  So much that they were at the studio all this week, prepping and shooting an aftershow, After Dark, that will premiere following our season 3 premiere on all Syfy International channels.

As a participant in the After Dark segments for our first two episodes, I was required to be in hair & make-up for 8:00 a.m. sharp.  After Renee Chan (Key Hair) transformed my run-of-the-mill hairstyle into a true t.v. do, Dorota Mitoraj (Asst. Make-Up) made me t.v.-ready.  Pictured above, Dorota shows off her work.

Fellow Episode 301 After Dark guest Anthony Lemke (THREE) shows off his fresh new look – and drops off three boxes of donuts for the crew.  What a guy!

Each episode of After Dark will be hosted by Zoie Palmer (Android) and include varied guests – like Anthony Lemke and Rich Edwards, editor of SFX magazine.

A is for Android.

Overseeing today’s action was Kristin Mente (Production Manager, NBC Universal) and the rest of the Syfy International team.

Lots of coverage.

After the first After Show segment, I was asked to record a promo for our fans watching on SyfyDE.  This time, it was ME who was receiving direction.  “Can you say Hi Germany so it doesn’t sound like a question?”was my favorite. Hello?  Germany???

An impromptu meeting of the Dark Matter Whiskey Club.

For the second After Dark instalment, Jodelle Ferland (FIVE) took Anthony’s spot on the couch.  And were also joined by Syfy Wire’s Tricia Ennis.

The Episode 302 aftershow also included a segment guest-starring Suji that may or may not make the cut on account of her unpredictability.  On the bright side, at least she didn’t poop on set.

The little diva patiently awaits her big scene.

Spoiler alert!  Preview pics of The Raza’s newest crew member.

Finally, a huge thank you to the team from Syfy International.

Catch After Dark immediately following all new episodes of Dark Matter this June!
