The very beginning of CONTINUUM‘s Season 4 has Kiera Cameron waking up in hospital after a battle with time travelers from 2039. Her doctor is played by Tammy Gillis. If you’re in Canada, you can stream that now on the Showcase site. Episode one will premiere on Showcase on 4 September, and on SyFy (US) on 11 September at 11pm. Two of the time troopers who send Cameron to the hospital are Lisa Berry (Serena in LOST GIRL 1.7), and Kyra Zagorsky (Julia Walker on HELIX).
Tammy Gillis will be Carla Martin in Episode 3 of TIES THAT BIND, the UP network’s first scripted series, which centers around Allison McLean (Kelli Williams), a police detective in suburban Seattle. When Allison and her partner (Dion Johnstone) arrest her brother (Luke Perry) for aggravated assault, her world drastically changes because when he’s sent to prison, she ends up caring for his two teenage children. In Episode 3, titled Ghosts, Allison comes face-to face with the man who shot her and time is running out to get him off the streets. “Ghosts” will air 26 August at 9pm.
Gillis will appear in the next two SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED films. According to Wingman Magazine, she will play Randilynn, an army medic (seen only in flashbacks) who goes off on a mission and is never seen again. In the first film, Truth Be Told, due to air 13 September at 9pm, The Postables work to deliver a soldier’s letter from Afghanistan to a teenager who is being relentlessly bullied. The second film, The Impossible Dream, has a scheduled broadcast date of 4 October. It was filmed in Victoria, B.C., but little more than that is known at this time.
SIGNED SEALED DELIVERED is about a group of post office detectives (The Postables) who solve the mysteries behind undeliverable packages fron the past. It began as a 10 episode series in 2014, and was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for James Jandrisch‘s music. Rather than continue it as a weekly series, HALLMARK launched a series of SSD films, the first of which aired in June.
On top of all that, Gillis will direct THE SUPPORT GROUP, a six episode comedic webseries created and produced by Sydney Doberstein, Laura Carly Miller, and Lily Zarif of Beyond Theatre Productions. The three also star in the series as unlikely friends Raina, Alexis, and Courtney, who try to prevent their
support group from shutting down for lack of money.
And for those going to the Toronto International Film Festival (10-20 September), Tammy Gillis has a small part in NO MEN BEYOND THIS POINT, which is a TIFF Official Selection. The Mark Sawers feature is a science fiction mocumentary about a world where women have become asexual and are no longer giving birth to males. (Gillis is a “female pundit” in the film.) Sawers’ last film, CAMERA SHY, won a bunch of Leo Awards in 2013.
