TV Eh B Cs podcast (repost) – Ari Millen’s Clone con Brio

When Anthony talked to Ari Millen in September, it had just been announced that he would be the next set of clones on Orphan Black. In case you missed it, here’s their conversation that’s no “cloning” around.

Discussions about growing up in Kingston and transitioning to Toronto, how dreams of a glorious Orphan Black death led to an unexpected “splice” of life, learning by watching on set, and JUST wrapping the film Hunter’s Moon. Plus a little obligatory talk about growing up goalie and grasping for a lost Italian word… chinotto!

Diane, Anthony and Greg went into overtime discussing a plethora of subjects this week, including the role TV, eh? played at this past weekend’s Toronto Screenwriting Conference, Canadian Screen Award winner 19-2 renewed for a third season and a Season 6 return date for Global’s Rookie Blue.

TV, eh? podcast episode 179 – Skinny Mocha Frappuccino Basic

It was a podcast chock-full of things for Diane, Anthony and Greg to discuss, including giving a well-deserved shout-out to our loyal Patreons who help keep the podcast up and running.

We also chatted about the fine character evolution we’ve enjoyed on Schitt’s Creek, the interesting fact that Vikings is filming some pre-production stuff with Alexander Ludwig in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., and remarked on how Sudbury, Ont., is becoming a hotbed for TV production with TVO/APTN’s Hard Rock Medical, CraveTV’s Letterkenny and Super Channel’s What Would Sal Do? all setting up shop there.

Diane prepped us on Slice’s upcoming documentary series, Emergency, which spotlights the patients and staff at the Fraser Health network of hospitals, a.k.a. Diane’s day job, we celebrated Jim Henshaw’s blog, The Legion of Decency, and closed out by asking Anthony what channels he’d select as part of his Pick and Pay cable lineup.
