On The Cusp… Of Greatness!

Chance Hurstfield is busy taping for the title role in the new animated prelay series for DHX Media – Dorg Van Dango.

 

Life is full of “changes” when you turn thirteen. Voices start to wobble, the odd pimple might appear, or – if you’re Dorg Van Dongo – four magical beings crash-land in your backyard, become your best buds, and transform your life forever!


Dorg Van Dango is 13-years-old, on the cusp of adolescence, so he’s independent, strong-willed, and occasionally has enough cash to buy his own milkshake, but he hasn’t become a jaded teen yet, and still has an irrepressible sense of adventure. He’s curious, earnest, exuberant, and is the sort of kid who always says ‘Yes’ – even when he should probably say ‘Nope’ or ‘Maybe’ or ‘I’m pretty sure that’s illegal’. He’s an eternal optimist who takes life by the horns with no saddle.

This series is a character comedy, a funny and outlandish look at life through the thick-lensed glasses of 13-year-old Dorg Van Dongo who befriends four otherworldly oddballs. His new pals have extraordinary powers, but to avoid detection Dorg must help them pretend that they’re not magical at all. They hide in plain sight, hanging out in the mall, the local diner, the comic store, and Dorg’s school masquerading as just another gang of teens trying to fit into Normal life. But in secret, the gang use their powers to help Dorg solve his teenage problems, or to deal with their own issues in the human world, or simply to create a marshmallow pizza.

And they didn’t have far to travel!

Both Jilena Cori and Mike Li have finished shooting a role on episode #308 of Travelers

Travelers Season 3 will continue the mission to save the future as the series was officially renewed by Netflix, but not by Showcase, which originally produced the show in Canada. Series star Eric McCormack, who will direct the Season 3 premiere, made the announcement on Twitter.

The series is produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment Inc., in association with Netflix. It is written, created and executive produced by Wright, with John G. Lenic and Mudd also serving as executive producers. McCormack is also a producer in addition to starring.

Synopsis:
Travelers is 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.

Tyana’s Big Debut With MoGoodTalent!


Tyana Sacree
has finished filming a role on Verizon’s go90s reboot of “Critters“.

Verizon’s go90 streaming service has ordered this live-action comedy series from Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio Blue Ribbon Content (BRC).

Critters: A New Binge” is a series adaptation of the cult classic feature films about small furry aliens with big teeth.

The 1986 horror sci­-fi comedy Critters launched a four­ film franchise about a race of small, porcupine ­like alien invaders who wreak havoc on Middle America. Pursued by a pair of shape­shifting bounty hunters, the ever­ hungry “Critters are ultimately thwarted by the local townsfolk. Part GREMLINS and part TERMINATOR, the movie featured classic practical puppet effects.   In the new series, the critters return to Earth in search of one of their kin, who was left behind years ago during an earlier mission. They land in Burbank where they wreak havoc on a group of high schoolers and their families.

The short form comedy­ horror series will call back to the playful tone and spirit of the classic original, while upping the ante both in laughs and “gross ­out” kills. It will be updating it for a new generation with current pop culture references and also by shooting the action sequences with a much more modern, quick­ cutting aesthetic than the previous installments. This time around, the setting also moves beyond the films’ small town shackles, shifting to a diverse, urban location with a cast to match. The series also delves deeper into the hierarchy of Critter society, revealing the creatures to be more than mindless balls of teeth. The Critters and their technology receive an upgrade as well, with advanced gadgets and weaponry now at their disposal. As the conflict between the humans and the Critters escalates, plot twists defy expectations, blurring the lines between the heroes and the villains.

Jordan Rubin, Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan will write and executive produce, with Rubin also directing.
