From a media release:
This month, the end of the world is just the beginning with the debut of the Canadian action thriller AFTERMATH, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET on Space. Starring real-life couple, James Tupper (Revenge, Men In Trees) and Anne Heche (Hung, Men In Trees) as Joshua and Karen Copeland, the one-hour, 13-episode series follows their family’s struggle through a possible Armageddon. Shot in Vancouver, AFTERMATH is created by William Laurin and Glenn Davis, and produced by Halfire Entertainment in association with Space and Syfy.
In AFTERMATH, Joshua Copeland (Tupper) is a university professor whose study of world cultures and beliefs gives him unique abilities to decode the end times and help his family to survive. Karen Copeland (Heche) is a fierce protector of her family, drawing on the combat skills and survival training she received as an Air Force pilot to keep her husband and children safe.
In the premiere episode, “RVL 6768” (Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET), faced with natural disasters, supernatural creatures, and a horrifying plague, the Copeland family fights to survive the end of the world.
AFTERMATH also stars Levi Meaden (The Killing, Olympus) as the Copeland’s eldest son, Matt. As a student, Matt was a fierce athlete whose physical prowess becomes an attribute as the family faces the end of the world, until the brutality of what he must do to survive begins to push his character into the darkness. Taylor Hickson (Deadpool) and Julia Sarah Stone (The Killing, Falling Skies) star as his twin sisters Brianna and Dana Copeland. Brianna is the outlier of the family who’s an emotional, romantic, and rebellious young woman anxious to live her own life, until the shocks and tragedies of the end of times put her on a new path. Dana is nothing like her fraternal twin – she’s practical, sardonic, and quick-witted with a keen analytical mind and a thorough knowledge of science.
AFTERMATH creators/showrunners are William Laurin and Glenn Davis (Missing, Power Play, John Woo’s Once a Thief). Jason Stone (This is the End, The Calling), directs the first two episodes. Laurin and Davis executive produce along with Craig Merritt. Suzanne Berger and Connie Dolphin also produce. In addition to his lead role on the series, James Tupper is also co-producer. Jason Stone is consulting producer.
