Dark Matter: Who is the real Jace Corso?
Three episodes into Dark Matter‘s first season and we should come to expect it by now. The moment that will end the episode and leave viewers shocked and eager to find out what happens next. This week’s shocker came in the form of someone that looks mighty familiar to Dark Matter viewers, as we were introduced to a man who was calling himself Jace Corso. It’s confusing you see because haven’t we already met Jace Corso? The pilot episode told us that Jace Corso was the real name of One (Marc Bendavid), so we’re left to wonder what’s really going on here? Continue reading.

Rookie Blue’s Enuka Okuma accepts a new challenge
While her Rookie Blue character, Detective Traci Nash may have had a big episode a couple weeks back, actress Enuka Okuma is about to take centre stage in a different way. She co-wrote this week’s episode of the Canadian cop drama with Adriana Maggs. “The timing of that was totally crazy because when we were shooting the Traci episode is when we were starting to write,” Okuma tells The TV Junkies.

From a media release:
T+E, a Blue Ant Media network, announced today the world premiere of The Weapon Hunter, a Blue Ant Media six-part, original series, produced in association with Cream Productions. Launching July 7, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, The Weapon Hunter follows the adventures of history buff and restoration expert, Paul Shull, as he embarks on a coast-to-coast quest to get his hands on and help resurrect some of the world’s rarest and most remarkable pieces of military history.
The series follows Shull and his lifelong obsession with military history and technology and he’s on a one-man mission to find and fire the weapons that helped shape the modern world. To achieve his goal, Shull enlists the aid of a loosely-knit network of history obsessed collectors. They’ve spent decades – and small fortunes – amassing military collections that rival those found in any museum. Now, they’re opening their doors to allow Shull the once-in-a-lifetime chance to come face to face with the past.
The Weapon Hunter is produced by Cream Productions with David Brady and Kate Harrison as Executive Producers. Matthew Booi is the Series Producer.
