ABC Family is a network that takes chances – could Kyle XY, Middleman, Bunheads, or Pretty Little Liars really have appeared anywhere else?
Now, the network is premiering Stitchers, a sci-fi/procedural/relationship dramedy that may have their most out there premise yet – technology exists to allow a human consciousness to be ‘stitched’ into the brain of a recently deceased person and experience their most recent memories. This technology is being used by a very, very clandestine government agency to solve murders – though not just any old murders…
Stitchers, the new ABC Family sci-fi drama about covert government operatives who allow themselves to be ‘stitched’ into the minds of the recently deceased, has begun production in Los Angeles.
Stitchers stars Emma Ishta (Manhattan Love Story) as newly recruited Kirsten who works alongside brilliant neuroscientist Cameron (Kyle Harris, The Carrie Diaries).
Salli Richardson-Whitfield’s (Eureka) Maggie heads the secret program which also includes immature bioelectrical engineer, Linus (Ritesh Rajan, Jungle Book) and Kirsten’s roommate, Camille (Allison Scgliotti, Warehouse 13), a gifted computer science grad student.
Syfy’s hit series, Eureka [Mondays, 8/7C] returns this evening with its mid-season [making it Season 4.5] premiere. I had the opportunity to take part in a Q&A session with series stars Colin Ferguson [who is also a producer on the show] and Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who play Sheriff Jack Carter and Global Dynamics Chief Medical Officer Allison Blake, respectively.
We talked about the show’s many intriguing relationships; upcoming guest stars, and of course, how much fun they’re having on the show this season – among other things. It went so well, that Ferguson and Richardson-Whitfield went a full half-hour beyond their allotted time!
Eureka [Syfy, Mondays, 8/7C] and Warehouse 13 [Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C] have built up a core of devoted fans because they combine humor and drama with unique, and entertaining, premises. Their return, this evening, is fraught with the kind of unusual perils –and twisted senses of humor – that keep them unpredictable fun.
The fourth season of Eureka [Syfy, Fridays, 9/8C] gets underway this evening with a full blown time travel episode in which the show’s core characters find themselves whisked away from Eureka’s annual Founder’s Day festivities and deposited in Camp Eureka – a military base that will eventually [in a few years] become the town envisioned by Albert Einstein and Doctor Trevor Grant [James Callis].
