SyFy’s Dark Matter Brings The Badass Ladies In Force:

http://www.themarysue.com/dark-matter-interview/

Space Opera is Set for a New Dawn with Dark Matter:

http://www.themortonreport.com/entertainment/television/space-opera-is-set-for-a-new-dawn-with-dark-matter/

“Dark Matter’s 13-episode first season is destined to be an action-packed mix of drama, humour and adventure in the mould of Stargate and Firefly. Any similarity to the former is not coincidental given that Mallozzi and Mullie have a long history with that franchise.”

Zoie Palmer Brings Dark Matter’s Android to Life:

http://www.thetvjunkies.com/zoie-palmer-dark-matter-android-to-life/

“I’m always drawn to the underdog a little bit, I’m drawn to those characters that are a little bit outside, a little bit quirky, a little bit disconnected. I think there’s a ton of places you can go. Even on Lost Girl I think every character felt a little bit like an outsider. It was a group of outsiders. They all sort of found each other and connected in that way.”

Melissa O’Neil and Antony Lemke talk Dark Matter:

http://metronews.ca/scene/1394068/qa-melissa-oneil-talks-spaces-dark-matter/

“When we started shooting, absolutely we were. We had read a number of episodes ahead as actors but one of the things that Joe and Paul did very, very well was keep secrets. Boy did they ever.”

Anthony Lemke talks Dark Matter:

http://www.torontosun.com/2015/06/11/anthony-lemke-talks-new-sci-fi-show-dark-matter

“Thematically for the show, you have the two poles, in a way, of how to approach life,” Lemke explained. “We have the side that is very moral, and the other is very instrumental. Whatever you can do to live another day is kind of what my character is all about.”

I talk about the show with Greg David at TV, eh?:

http://www.tv-eh.com/2015/06/09/dark-matter-launches-canadas-summer-of-sci-fi/

“There is a lot of dark sci-fi out there that is great,” he explains. “But a lot of fans are missing a fun sci-fi series and there hasn’t been one on a ship-based show for awhile. We set out to make a fun show with a sense of humour while at the same time putting viewers on the edge of their seat every week.”

Thank you so much for all the touching tributes to my gal, Jelly.  I received emails, Facebook messages, tweets, and, as you can see, over 125 comments on yesterday’s entry.  It feels strange and lonely without her.  I’ll miss propping her up on my chest so that we could gaze longingly into each other’s eyes, and the smell of her nacho feet.

Thanks to my sis who put together this wonderful Jelly photo album:

https://www.facebook.com/andria.mallozzi/media_set?set=a.10153212503701743.687476742&type=3

Well, I have one more day in Toronto before I finally head back to Vancouver early (early!) Friday morning.  I’ll admit – I was leery about coming back here but I’m so glad I did.  The show is incredible, and I owe it all the amazing cast and crew who are not only so good at what they do, but such a pleasure to work with.

A big thanks to everyone who worked from prep, through production and post – covering everything from casting to visual effects, the gang at the production office and post-production.

Special thanks to my Vancouver boys, Ivon Bartok and Lawren Bancroft-Wilson, who uprooted their lives to move here and worked their asses off for me.

Thanks to my writing-producing partner, Paul Mullie, who shuttled back and forth, abandoning his family at irregular intervals so that he could come east and support the show.

Thanks to Rachel Sutherland, Commander of post-production who, while everyone else has moved on, stays behind to deliver on a very tight schedule – yet manages to do it with a smile.

Thanks to line producer Norman Denver who kept us on the straight and narrow, making sure we didn’t blow our budget on burgers and whisky.

Thanks to my partner in crime, Vanessa Piazza, who was there with me through prep, on set through production, and overseeing post.  I honestly could NOT have done it without her.

And an enormous thanks to Prodigy Pictures President Jay Firestone who defied the odds and expectations by putting together the deals that got the show green lit, then defying the odds and expectations again by delivering a series that blew away expectations.  He read all the scripts, provided notes, and weighed in on all aspects of production.  The very best example of what a creative producer should be.  I honestly thought we’d fight more.  Ah well.  I suppose there’s always season 2!

IMG_8323

Me, Jay, Vanessa, and Norman at tonight’s premiere screening of Dark Matter episodes #101 and #102.

It looked AMAZING on the big screen.  The show has everything a scifi fan would want: action, adventure, intrigue, suspense, humor, lovable and engaging characters, and dazzling visual effects.  Dark Matter will NOT disappoint.

As we countdown to our world premiere, check out another early view, this one by Jamie Ruby at Scifi Vision:
