Sci-Fi Storm heads north for the 7th Annual Syfy Press Tour

by on Sep.30, 2013, under Television

Next Sunday and Monday, we’ll be reporting from the 7th Annual Syfy Press Tour…like last year, we will be visiting the sets of a couple of Syfy TV series, but not in Toronto – this year, we will be in Montreal, visiting the sets of Being Human and the upcoming Ron Moore show Helix!

Sunday night I’ll be occasionally tweeting some pics when possible from dinner, which will (as planned) include some of the stars of Defiance (Stephanie Leonidas, Jesse Rath, and Trenna Keating), Haven (Lucas Bryant, Eric Balfour, Adam “The Edge” Copeland), Ghost Hunters (Jason Hawes, Amy Bruni, Adam Berry), and director of Sharknado and Sharknado 2: The Second One, Anthony Ferrante. And who knows who else may drop by…

On Monday, we will visit the sets, but the schedule is still being worked out. But be sure to follow along on Twitter as well as here as we usually run some social media sharing with our fellow press members…

Wondering about last year? Check out our set visits for Defiance and Warehouse 13!

Thunderbirds Are GO! remake gets voice cast

by on Sep.30, 2013, under Television

The upcoming ITV remake of the Gerry Anderson Supermarionation show Thunderbirds Are GO! now has some voices behind it.

Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Jack Reacher) will voice Lady Penelope, the female International Rescue agent with the cool pink car, and whose chauffeur will be voiced by non other than David Graham, one of the original voice actors on the show (and several other Anderson shows), as well as one of the original Dalek voices.

Playing the five Tracy brothers in the show are just three actors…Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Nanny McPhee, Love Actually, Phineas and Ferb) and Rasmus Hardiker (Lead Balloon, Groove High) will each voice two and David Menkin (Zero Dark Thirty) will voice the last.

26 half-hour episodes will air on ITV beginning in 2015. No US outlet has been announced yet.
