'TRAVELERS' SF SERIES
TOPLINED BY ERIC MCCORMACK
Here's a new sf show for us: as 'Deadline' reports Netflix has teamed up with Canadian Showcase on TRAVELERS series set hundreds of years from now when the last surviving humans discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century.
These TRAVELERS assume the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform missions in order to save humanity from a terrible future. These travelers are: Special Agent Grant MacLaren (Erick McCormack), the team’s leader; Marcy (Mackenzie Porter), an intellectually disabled woman in the care of her social worker, David (Patrick Gilmore); Trevor (Jared Abrahamson), a high school quarterback; Carly (Nesta Cooper), a single mom in an abusive relationship; and Philip (Reilly Dolman), a heroin addicted college student. Armed only with their knowledge of history and an archive of social media profiles, the travelers discover that 21st century lives and relationships are as much a challenge as their high-stakes missions.
'SLACK BAY' TRAILER
JULIETTE BINOCHE IN CANNES FILM FESTIVAL MOVIE
An international trailer for you today, one of possible Cannes winners this year, which will be distributed in USA too by Kino Lorber, Juliette Binoche's SLACK BAY! The story is set in the summer of 1910 on the Channel coast where several tourists have vanished. Infamous inspectors Machin and Malfoy soon realize that the epicentre of these mysterious disappear- ances must be SLACK BAY, the unique site where the Slack River and the sea join at high tide. A small community of fishermen and oyster farmers live there. Among them, a curious family has surfaced: renown ferrymen the Bréforts, led by a patriarch nicknamed “The Eternal,” who rules as best as he can his prankster sons. Towering high above the bay stands the Van Peteghems’ mansion. Every summer, this bourgeois family, degenerate and decadent from in-breeding, stagnates in the villa, though in their leisure hours, they also commingle with ordinary folk. Over the course of five days, a peculiar love story between Eternal's son Ma Loute and the young and mischievous Billie Van Peteghem will begin, and confusion and mystification will descend on both families, shaking their convictions and ways of life to their foundations.
