Megan Heffern (Tabitha in Fae-de to Black) will be Evelyn in CHOKESLAM, a wrestling movie filmed in Regina, due to be released later this year. Producer Anand Ramayya, speaking to CTV News, described the story as “…a romantic comedy about a female wrestler with a bad temper and her nerdy delicatessen boyfriend who’s trying to win her love back. It’s a really sweet story and it’s really funny, and it’s a really smart script.” Among others in the film are WYNONNA EARP‘s Michael Eklund, and semi-retired wrestler Mick Foley.
Brittany Allen (Della in Delinquents) is Naomi in the science fiction film INCONTROL, which, according to writer and director Kurtis David Harder, delves somewhat playfully into the theme of addiction. “We’re hoping to make a fun film, you know a sci-fi thriller that people can enjoy,” Harder told Jeremy Simes of Calgary Metro News during production. “But it also plays into asking moral questions and the deeper meaning behind it all.” Now in post-production, INCONTROL will tour North American film festivals later this year. Among others in the cast are Sarah Troyer and David LeReaney
(both of whom have appeared on WYNONNA EARP), and Anja Savčić (Mary Collacut on CBC’s STRANGE EMPIRE).

Nadine Djoury (Lisa, the nurse at Lauren’s clinic in Big In Japan) is Julia in CBC Punchline’s comedy NEWBORN MOMS, the “untold story of what it’s like to be a new parent struggling with sleepless nights and self-doubt”. Created by Djoury and Aurora Browne, the series follows two moms as they reconcile the kind of mothers they thought they would be with the kind of moms they actually are. All nine episodes aired on CBC last November and are currently available to stream on CBC’s website. Regrettably, NEWBORN MOMS is not available in the US. Vanessa Matsui appears as Cecelia in the ninth episode. Kris Siddiqi (delivery man in LOST GIRL episode 2.18 Fae-nted Love) is Paolo.
