Jeff Teravainen (Lt. John Anders in “But First We Save The Galaxy“) is Gerald in UTOPIA FALLS, a post-apocalyptic near future series which follows a group of teens who have been chosen to participate in a prestigious performing arts competition in the colony of New Babyl. On the way there, the group stumbles upon an ancient, forbidden archive of cultural relics and what they discover in it makes them question everything they have ever been taught about music and art. (Snoop Dog is the voice of the archive.)
A variety of dance styles and musical genres will be featured on the show, which describes itself as “the first ever performance based sci-fi series for culturally diverse and socially and politically minded young audiences“. Melanie Orr, who directed the DARK MATTER episode “Built, Not Born“, will direct two episodes; Kate Drummond (Sajen in “The Dwarf Star Conspiracy“) appears in several episodes as Authority Phydra; and Joseph Mallozzi is showrunner. All ten episodes of UTOPIA FALLS will be available 14 February on CBC Gem in Canada, and on HULU in the US. Continue reading →
