February 2011

Daniel Tosh returns to his hosting duties on a new night and time, presenting the good, the bad and the ugly on the Internet.  

TOSH.0 features the razor sharp humor and biting commentary from the comedian and delves into all aspects of the Web in this weekly, topical series.  

Each episode features the segment “Web Redemption,” which gives subjects of infamous viral videos (i.e. American Idol Girls and Stuck in an Elevator) a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they’ve become synonymous.

TOSH.0 airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on The Comedy Network.

 

Beginning Monday, March 7, SPACECAST.com hosts the award-winning digital series RIESE: KINGDOM FALLING.

Featuring a bevy of Canadian sci-fi talent, new mini-episodes of the 10-part series are set to stream on SPACECAST.com every Monday and Friday through to Friday, April 8.

Also on the site, fans can log on throughout March for exclusive web interviews with the cast of the show. For those who want to see it all again, RIESE: KINGDOM FALLING airs in its entirety following the season finale of MERLIN on Saturday, April 9 at 9 p.m. ET, exclusively on SPACE.

Starring Canadian Christine Chatelain (SANCTUARY), RIESE: KINGDOM FALLING is a fantasy-adventure steampunk web series that chronicles the life of a mysterious wanderer named Riese. A life-on-the-run from a world with a dim future, Riese and her trusted wolf companion, Fenrir, flee their dying land of Eleysia in search of freedom as they are hunted by assassins of The Sect, a terrifying religious entity. As she tries to piece together her mysterious past, Riese takes on a life and death journey with the balance and the fate of the world lying in the palm of her hands.

Narrated by genre icon Amanda Tapping (SANCTUARY), RIESE features a cavalcade of Canadian talent from the world of popular speculative drama, including Ryan Robbins (CAPRICA), Patrick Gilmore (STARGATE UNIVERSE), Alessandro Juliani (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), Sharon Taylor (STARGATE UNIVERSE) and Ben Cotton (HARPER’S ISLAND). The 10-part web series and 2-hour telecast features other sci-fi mainstays including Allison Mack (SMALLVILLE) and Emilie Ullerup (SANCTUARY).

RIESE: KINGDOM FALLING is the first live action sci-fi web series to feature the genre steampunk – a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy that features anachronistic technology and design elements, often from Victorian-era Britain. The series won the Streamy Award for Best Cinematography in a Web Series with a further three nominations for Best Sound Design, Best Foreign Series and Art Direction. Shot in Vancouver, RIESE was created by Ryan Copple and Kaleena Kiff, and produced by Galen Fletcher and Nicholas Humphries.
