Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday) will be Isaac in the upcoming SyFy series VAGRANT QUEEN, that will star Adriyan Rae as Elida, a child queen driven from her throne at the age of ten and forced to wander the galaxy, pursued by revolutionaries who want her dead. The series is based on the graphic novel by Magdalene Visaggio. In the book, Elida’s family held power because centuries ago they invented a brainwashing device that was used to convince the people that they were gods. Isaac is an old friend of Elida’s and he persuades her that she must return to the heart of her former kingdom and rescue her mother, who (Isaac tells her) is imprisoned in a monastery.
VAGRANT QUEEN will be written and directed entirely by women. The first two writers on board are Mika Collins and Mariko Tamaki. Showrunner Gem Garrard and Danishka Esterhazy are the first two named directors. Production will begin in July in Cape Town, South Africa, and the ten-episode series will premiere on SyFy sometime in 2020.
And Rozon will co-star as Travis in the Hallmark movie CHRISTMAS TOWN, (based on the 2016 novel by Donna VanLiere). An unhappy young woman (Lauren Gabriel, played by Candace Cameron Bure), goes for a drive after work several days before Christmas and soon finds herself in the small town of Grandon. (After a car accident near there, Travis gives Lauren a ride into town.) She soon becomes involved with the annual fundraiser for Glory’s Place, a center for single mothers and families who need help. CHRISTMAS TOWN, which will be the eighth Hallmark Channel Christmas movie for Candace Bure, recently completed filming in Vancouver. No air date has yet been announced. Continue reading →
Death (Melanie Scrofano) introduces herself to Adam (Dylan Taylor) in a coffee shop
Unpublished novelist Adam (Dylan Taylor) tells his girlfriend Tracy (Meghan Heffern) that he plans to fix the plumbing while she is at work. She suggests that he finish his novel instead. Adam whines a bit about not being able to pay half the rent (something Tracy seems totally unconcerned about), and suggests that maybe it’s time to “let the dream die”. Then Tracy goes to work, and Adam heads to the local coffee shop to write. He is met there by Emma , who introduces herself as Death.
Dancing with Death.
Emma (Melanie Scrofano) tells Adam that his time on earth is up, but that he should be happy about it. After his demise (she explains), Tracy will get his novel published and it will become the greatest novel of all time. When Adam remains reluctant to die after learning this, Emma takes an instant liking to him. They spend the rest of the day together, as Emma tries to make sense of why Adam wants so badly to continue living. (Emma claims to only be able to predict what will happen after Adam’s death, and says that she sees what happens before he dies only as a series of choices. The implication is that his influence on the lives of others is made a fixed and immutable thing after his death, because Tracy will have no choice but to get Adam’s novel published.)
