Showcase to premiere Continuum on Sunday, May 27

Hot on the heels of a slew of standout original series rolled out by Shaw Media this broadcast year, Showcase is set to premiere another epic series with Continuum.

The futuristic police drama stars Rachel Nichols (Criminal Minds, Alias) as Kiera Cameron, a cop from the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. Featuring 10 hour-long episodes, the series premieres on Sunday, May 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

When a group of fanatical terrorists escapes their planned execution in the year 2077, they vault back in time to 2012 sweeping dedicated City Protective Services officer, Kiera Cameron, along with them.

With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen; Jericho, Scream 4) Kiera concentrates on bringing down the terrorists before they can change the course of history forever.

Desperate to get back to her husband and son, Kiera impersonates a local law enforcement officer to expedite her investigation, forming an uneasy alliance with her new partner, detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster; Castle, Melrose Place).

“A welcomed addition to our exceptional lineup of original programming, Continuum is a multi-dimensional drama that is perfect for Showcase,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “A futuristic drama on the surface, the series incorporates sophisticated story lines inspired by the present, and connects with viewers on an emotional level as we see a strong-willed heroine fight for her life, her future and her family.”
