I split the pilot into 2 parts, as that’s how it was aired. Some people may think of it as one episode but that’s not how I’m doing this. So far I’ve got over 1500 High Def captures of Julie uploaded into the gallery.
In the meantime I’ve got some stunning HQ Winter TCA Portraits of Julie (and her equally stunning co-star Grant Bowler) now uploaded to the gallery. A big thanks to http://jennifer-l.com/ for the photos.
We’re also hoping to get some new layouts for both the front page and the gallery to help celebrate the new year.
Syfy says it plans to start shooting its new show “Defiance,” starring Grant Bowler and Julie Benz, in Toronto this week.
A pilot for the series was taped in the spring. Production on the rest of the first season is scheduled to start Tuesday.
The show will also star Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene, Mia Kirshner and Fionnula Flanagan.
“An unprecedented partnership between Syfy and Trion Worlds, ‘Defiance’ is the first-ever convergence of television and Massive Multiplayer Online gaming, featuring an interconnected world and story-lines that will co-exist throughout a scripted drama series and a multi-platform MMO shooter,” a synopsis said.
Both the series and the game are to debut simultaneously in April.
The action takes place in the near future as seven unique alien races arrive on Earth and natives and newcomers must learn to co-exist peacefully.
Well now I can confirm that Defiance is indeed getting a spot and Julie is listed on Comic-Con.org’s guest list! While everyone going has a super busy schedule ahead of them I am making it a personal goal to get to the Defiance panel and to take tons of Julie photos! So fingers crossed.
The Defiance panel is scheduled for Friday, July 13th at 6:45-7:45pm in Room 6DE.
6:45-7:45 Defiance— Syfy and Trion unite television and gaming in the biggest entertainment event of 2013: Defiance. Grant Bowler (Nolan), Julie Benz (Amanda Rosewater), Tony Curran (Datak Tarr), Jamie Murray (Stahma Tarr), Kevin Murphy (executive producer), Nick Beliaeff (SVP, development, Trion Worlds), Rob Hill (senior producer, Trion Worlds), and Mark Stern (president, Syfy original content and co-head UCP) discuss how Defiance defies everything you know about conventional storytelling.
