Ron’s Biggest Fantasy!

Ron Wear
has booked a role in Episode #511 of Van Helsing, Season 5.

Season Five of Syfy’s American-Canadian dark fantasy horror drama television series Van Helsing, was renewed for a final season.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring the amazing Van Helsing saga to a close. This could not have been done without the support of our incredible cast, crew, Syfy, Netflix and Super Ecran.”

Syfy has given a 13-episode order for Van Helsing Season 5. With the finish line now clearly on the horizon, the series will be able to properly conclude its story, which has greatly evolved its mythology from an initial concept centered on Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), who, bearing an innate ability to combat (and even cure) vampires, was brought back to life to serve as humanity’s last hope in a post-apocalyptic near-future.

Van Helsing is an American-Canadian dark fantasy horror drama television series, overseen by provocateur playwright-filmmaker Neil LaBute, which premiered September 23, 2016 on Syfy in the United States. The series follows Vanessa Helsing (played by Kelly Overton) daughter of famed vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, who wakes up after a five-year coma to discover a vampire-controlled world. She soon learns that she possesses a unique blood composition that makes her immune to vampires and able to turn the creatures into humans. That power puts humanity’s last hope to return the world to how it once was before the vampires took over in Vanessa’s hands. The series premiered on Netflix December 23, 2016″

The network is hopeful the series will air in late Fall or early Winter.

It’s Totally Legal!

Laban Pitman-Johnson will be filming a role in episode # 104 of Family Law early next month.


Jewel Staite, Victor Garber, Zach Smadu, and Genelle Williams Cast as the Perfectly Flawed Dysfunctional Family.

Filming originally began March 2 in Vancouver, Family Law is produced by SEVEN24 Films (Heartland, Wynonna Earp) and Lark Productions (Motive, Fortunate Son), created by Canadian award-winning author Susin Nielsen (Robson Arms, Cedar Cove), with Jordan Canning (Nurses, Schitt’s Creek) directing the pilot episode.

Set to premiere on Global later this year, the 10-episode, one-hour drama follows a group of flawed family members who reluctantly work together at their father’s law firm in downtown Vancouver. The legal procedural stars a talented all-Canadian cast including: Jewel Staite (Firefly), as recovering alcoholic Abigail ‘Abby’ Bianchi; Victor Garber (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as Harry Svensson, Abby’s estranged father and head of the firm; Zach Smadu (The Expanse) as Daniel Svensson, Abby’s half-brother who is displeased to be working with Abby; and Genelle Williams (The Expanse) as Lucy Svensson, Abby’s half-sister and considered dad’s favourite child. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

“We are honoured to partner with SEVEN24 Films and Lark Productions on this new, powerhouse drama set in Vancouver,” said Lisa Godfrey, Vice President Original Content, Corus Entertainment. “With humour, heart, and broad appeal, we were instantly drawn to Family Law’s original concept – an imperfect family of lawyers helping other flawed families – and are proud to add it to Global’s roster of hit series.”

Corus’ incredible passion and commitment to the series has allowed us to bring these captivating characters to an audience in Canada and around the world,” said Jordy Randall, Executive Producer, SEVEN24 Films. “We’re so excited to be able to showcase the humour and emotion that Susin Nielsen’s unique voice has instilled in Family Law.”

Set in Vancouver, Canada, Family Law follows lawyer and recovering alcoholic Abigail ‘Abby’ Bianchi (Staite) struggling to put her career and family back together after hitting rock bottom. As a condition of her probation, Abby is forced to work at her estranged father’s (Garber) firm, Svensson and Associates, and practice in family law for the first time while forging new relationships with the half-brother (Smadu) and half-sister (Williams) whom she’s never met. The result is a dysfunctional family law firm operating to help other families with their own dysfunctions.

Family Law is executive produced by SEVEN24?s Tom Cox and Jordy Randall, Lark’s Erin Haskett and Andy Mikita. eOne will handle distribution for the series outside of Canada.
