Sanctuary Amanda Tapping’s New SF Show

Amanda Tapping (Samatha Carter in SG1) has a new show which debuted this weekend in the states and on Monday night 9pm on ITV4 in the UK. Very interesting to see this as they did some initial episodes on the web to prove the concept and are for the show proper going to be using some of the new 4k Hdef Video cameras (Red Cameras) to shoot the show in a mostly virtual set.

The show premise is:

Sanctuary follows the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic and always surprising Dr. Helen Magnus, her new recruit, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman and her fearless daughter Ashley. Together they track down, study and protect the strange and often terrifying creatures that secretly populate our world and live among us.

Although dismissed as monstrous figments of our imaginations and the stuff of our childhood nightmares, Magnus recognizes that the world is full of nature’s mistakes and triumphs and has the spectacular proof that they are indeed real.

Will, an insightful psychiatric profiler with a knack for finding the strange and curious, reluctantly joins the team to aid in the study of beings he can hardly believe himself. Together, Magnus, Will, Ashley and quirky tech-whiz Henry, use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting edge technology to find the creatures that lurk in the corners of our civilization and protect us from those too dangerous to be roaming free.


I must admit I think going Brunette suits Amanda a change from her sensible Big Sister blonde look in SG1
