CHCH Announced as the Canadian Broadcaster for Seven24 Films Wynonna Earp
- 13-episode one-hour series in production in Calgary
- Melanie Scrofano, Tim Rozon, Shamier Anderson and Dominique Provost-Chalkley cast as leads
SEVEN24 Films announced today that independent over-the-air broadcaster CHCH in Ontario has acquired Canadian broadcast rights to Wynonna Earp, the live action television series currently in production in Calgary. The 13-episode one-hour series is based on the IDW Publishing comic created by Beau Smith.
Scheduled to premiere Monday, March 28, 2016 at 10pm, Wynonna Earp is a lively, contemporary thriller that follows Wyatt Earp’s great great-granddaughter as she battles demons and other supernatural beings. A modern day gunslinger, Wynonna uses her unique abilities and a dysfunctional posse of allies to bring the paranormal to justice.
Melanie Scrofano (A Sunday Kind of Love, Gangland Undercover) stars as Wynonna Earp. Tim Rozon (Being Human, Instant Star) will play legendary con-artist Doc Holiday, Shamier Anderson (Defiance, Constantine) plays Wynonna’s ally Agent Dolls, and Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Beautiful Devils) has been cast as Wynonna’s sister, Waverly. Emily Andras (Lost Girl) developed the series for television and serves as Executive Producer and Showrunner.
Wynonna Earp is produced in Calgary by SEVEN24 Films, and distributed by IDW Entertainment. The series will also air on Syfy in the US. Production began on September 14th. SEVEN24’s Jordy Randall and Tom Cox serve as Executive Producers and Brian Dennis is producing.
“Together with SEVEN24 Films, CHCH, and a virtual dream cast, I’m confident we have something special on our hands: a female-led supernatural series with grand themes of redemption, honour, and the struggle to define good vs. evil. Not to mention, a kickass biker babe fighting demon outlaws,” said Showrunner Emily Andras.
