The Writers Guild of Canada in partnership with Praxis Centre for Screenwriters is proud to present a screening and discussion with Simon Barry, the creator and showrunner of the hit series Continuum. In conversation with TV Eh?’s Diane Wild, Simon will explore the series’ origins, the rules of the world he’s created, and how those rules play out in the Continuum writers room and on the page.
Continuum premiered on Showcase in Spring of 2012, capturing 1.7 million Canadian viewers. A Showcase original series, filmed in Vancouver, Continuum features Kiera Cameron, a regular cop from 65 years in the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver, tracking eight of the most ruthless criminals from the future, known as Liber8, escaping their planned execution in the year 2077. The series was picked up for U.S. and U.K. broadcast by the popular specialty channel Syfy, which began airing the first season in January. Simon is in production now on season two.
