Tonight: Bahama Blue

Bahama Blue, Love Nature – “The Sand Flats”
Beyond the iconic and pristine white beaches of the Bahamas, the Sand Flats are home to fierce Iguanas, camouflaging stingrays, and the beautiful bottlenose dolphin. All of this sand is the surprising waste product produced by resident parrotfish nibbling on coral, producing one tonne of sand per fish every year. Each species relies on the surprising abundance in the sand flats both onshore and off. Green sea turtles spend most of their lives grazing on the sea grasses of the sand flats. Stingrays use incredible electro sensitivity to locate crustaceans hidden away in the sand. The creatures of the sand flats have unique skills for turning seemingly desert conditions, in to an advantage.

Dark Matter Exerts Its Gravitational Pull, June 12 on Space

From a media release:

Space takes its rightful place in the far reaches of the galaxy with the premiere of Canadian series, DARK MATTER,  Friday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET.  Produced by Prodigy Pictures and created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, the one-hour series shot in Toronto follows the crew of a derelict spaceship who awaken from stasis, with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal, and hidden secrets. DARK MATTER is created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, the team behind the Dark Matter graphic novel and the fan-favourite STARGATE franchise.

DARK MATTER’s crew are One (Marc Bendavid, BITTEN), the charming, moral centre of the crew; Two (Melissa O’Neil, Broadway’s Les Misérables), the tough and determined leader of the group; Three (Anthony Lemke, 19-2), the mercenary who looks out for only himself; the calmly ruthless and stoic Four (Alex Mallari Jr., Robocop); Five (Jodelle Ferland, The Cabin in the Woods), the team’s youngest member with a skill for mechanics and a mysterious ability; the low-key Six (Roger Cross, MOTIVE), a man of integrity; and The Android (Zoie Palmer, LOST GIRL), an outsider among the ship’s human passengers yet an indispensable member who possesses control over the ship’s systems.

In the premiere episode of DARK MATTER (Friday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET), the crew searches for answers leading them to a rebellious, off-world mining colony and a shocking revelation. Episode 2 of DARK MATTER (Friday, June 19 at 10 p.m. ET) follows the debut of Space original action adventure series, KILLJOYS, at 9 p.m. ET.

Developed by Prodigy Pictures in association with Space, executive producers for DARK MATTER are Jay Firestone (LOST GIRL), creators Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, and Vanessa Piazza (LOST GIRL).

Samantha Bee gets back behind the desk for YTV
Outgoing Daily Show with Jon Stewart correspondent Samantha Bee says she welcomed the chance to get behind a desk again for the Montreal-shot teen show Game On.

They appear as a pair of play-by-play announcers providing running commentary for the awkward foibles of a 14-year-old boy. Continue reading.
