Lost Girl in production for Showcase

From a media release:

Prodigy Pictures and Canwest Announce Start of Production on New Original Canadian Fantasy-Noir series, Lost Girl

  • Series to air on Showcase Fall 2010

Prodigy Pictures, in association with Canwest Broadcasting, announced today that principal photography is underway for 13 one-hour episodes of the new original Canadian fantasy-noir series, Lost Girl. Filming will take place at a West Toronto soundstage and on location in the vicinities of Toronto and Hamilton until June 25, 2010. The series is set to air on Showcase in the fall.

Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk: Being Erica; Billable Hours), a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of mortals. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them in secret, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out that she is not alone, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.

Bo’s succubus nature tangles her in a sexy, romantic love-triangle with Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid: Ben Hur, The Bridge; The Tudors), a shape-shifting Fae and homicide detective, and Lauren (Zoie Palmer: The Guard; Instant Star), a human doctor who has found a way through science to help give Bo the sexual self-control she’s been aching for. Navigating this complicated life with Bo is her human confidante and street-smart survivor, Kenzi (Ksenia Solo: Life Unexpected; Renegadepress.com).

Slated to direct the series are Genie Award winner Érik Canuel (Hemingway: A Portrait); Steve DiMarco (Republic of Doyle, Heartland, Da Vinci’s Inquest); Gemini Award winner John Fawcett (The Bridge, Da Vinci’s Inquest) and Rob Lieberman (Republic of Doyle, Dexter).

Writers include Michelle Lovretta (Sorority Wars, Mutant X); Peter Mohan (The Bridge, Mutant X); Jeremy Boxen (The Listener, Kenny vs. Spenny); Emily Andras (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Total Drama Island); and Pamela Pinch (Robson Arms).

Cinematographer David Greene was recently awarded the CSC Award for Best Drama Series based on the pilot he shot for Lost Girl last year.

A companion website for the series is being produced concurrently and will launch with the show to give viewers an unprecedented, interactive experience.

Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Canwest Broadcasting and Showcase. Executive Producers are Jay Firestone, Michelle Lovretta, Peter Mohan, Plato Fountidakis, and Paul Rapovski; Associate Producer, Vanessa Piazza. Producer is Wanda Chaffey.

  1. Cool!, Seems their making a few TV shows and movies from romance novels that I have read over the years.

  2. Ironic!! I am getting a Succubus tattoo next week!! The tattoo artist has been working on my design for nearly three weeks now… I just cant wait!! This is very ironic! ;) but coool !!

  3. OMG, just watched the first episode. Was it ever amazing! Kick ass main character, Kenzi is the cutest thing ever and I’m already hooked on this show. Dying to see the next episode. Love anything to do with the Fae, it makes for killer entertainment. :P

  4. Wow, what an embarrassment. Dialogue amateur-land. “These are your weapons… choose from them wisely.” [eyebrow arch]

  5. Just watched the first episode and I am thrilled, finally this genre is being explored in TV and from what I saw has a good shot at becoming great. The multitude of books on faerie that adults and teens have been reading is just one indication that this is a good move. Good writing will be able to cary this into seasons of exploration If the story is offered as seriously as the first episode and strong writing compels viewers to watch over and over again.

  6. I’ve watched the first and second episodes now and despite some of the silly dialogue I’m enjoying it. Kristen Holden-Reid is the best part of it and his chemistry with Anna Silk is palpable.

  7. What a cool show! I like the characters and the style; I love that it has a Canadian flavour quite unlike British or American shows. And I really love the relationship between Bo, Dyson and Lauren. Kris Holden-Ried is quite wonderful – and so is Ksenia Solo. Kudos to all involved.

  8. I really enjoy the show …great actors and actress…Love the chemistry betweeb Bo and Dyson…i love the music in the shows any idea where i may find where to get it .

    Awesome! Please renew it for a second season, a full season!

  11. A friend told me about the show, so I took in a marathon of the first 4 episodes. Was not too sure after the first episode but I stayed with it and now I am hooked. I love that it is filmed in and around Toronto, nice to see places you know. I also love the chemistry between Bo and Dysen, but then watching Dysen for an hour is just fine with me.
    I am planning on watching all 13 episodes and looking forward to a season 2.

  12. all characters are perfect!!!!!!!
