As reported today by The Province, Vancouver has been hosting the ongoing production of a new spin-off of the British TV series Primeval, which follows a team of scientists investigating “temporal anomalies”. And there are dinosaurs too — so what’s not to love?
The Canadian version, titled Primeval: New World, will air on Space channel and feature two Acting for Film & Television graduates in lead roles: Niall Matter (Eureka) and Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries). It’s also worth noting that the series was re-developed by Vancouver’s own Omni Film Productions, where Writing for Film & Television graduate Michele McMahon is the Director of Drama Development.
Congrats to everyone involved. We can’t wait to see the new series!
