Toronto, ON (March 5, 2009) – SPACE commemorates the end of an era as BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, the series that redefined science fiction, reaches its climactic conclusion on Friday, March 20. Before the grief sinks in, SPACE preempts its regular programming for a day of devotion to the “frakkin’ end” of the groundbreaking series.

SPACE’s swan song to BSG begins with a marathon of episodes from the second half of Season 4 and a one-hour finale special, beginning at 11 a.m. ET. The highly-anticipated finale premieres with a special two-hour episode at 9 p.m. ET, followed by a live in-studio FANDOM FORUM at 11 p.m. ET and streamed on www.spacecast.com. The live event marks the first of its kind for SPACE.

SPACE kicks off the day by offering viewers a chance to relive the events leading to the series’ end, with an all-day marathon beginning 11 a.m. ET. THE CIRCUIT PRESENTS: THE FRAKKIN’ END features encore presentations of episodes 411 (“Sometimes a Great Notion”) to 419 (“Daybreak: Part 1”), hosted with interstitials from THE CIRCUIT crew Ajay Fry, Natasha Eloi, Teddy Wilson and Paul Stachniak.

SPACE Beats the Winter Blahs in A World With Three Suns in New Original Series STORMWORLD, March 18

– Introductory special STORMWORLD: BEHIND THE SCENES premieres March 11–

Toronto, ON (March 4, 2009) Two friends get sucked into a swirling vortex after a nautical joyride goes awry in SPACE’s new original series STORMWORLD. The 26-part Canadian/Australian co-production premieres Wednesday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET, exclusively on SPACE. Each episode of the half-hour, sci-fi adventure series is available on demand at www.spacecast.com immediately following its television premiere. STORMWORLD is another example of SPACE’s ongoing commitment to original Canadian production.

Canadian actors Andrew Jenkins (ALIENS IN AMERICA) and Calum Worthy (PSYCH) are Jason and Lee, two buddies living normal lives in Vancouver. When Jason’s dad gets a new boat, the boys decide to take it for a joyride and get caught in a swirling vortex that brings them to Stormworld. This new world is a parallel universe with three suns, mind-distorting storms, and wild coastlines, surrounded by a hostile environment where drinkable water is precious and food is limited.

The boys are rescued by Flees (Valentina Barron, STREETSMARTZ) and her pedantic companion, Ogee. Flees has one of the few serviceable watercrafts on Stormworld and grudgingly volunteers to take the new visitors to a small community trying to create civilization and order against the forces of nature and scavengers. One thing is constant for Jason, Lee, and almost everyone on Stormworld: the search for the way home.

SPACE provides a little calm before the storm with the 30-minute introductory special STORMWORLD: BEHIND THE SCENES, airing Wednesday, March 11 at 10 p.m. ET. The special takes an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the series and features Vancouver-based special effects company Artifex Studios, responsible for some of the CGI work in STORMWORLD.

STORMWORLD was shot on location in Vancouver, Western Australia and Singapore, and is produced by Brightlight Pictures and Perth Australia’s Great Western Entertainment for SPACE in Canada and 9 Network in Australia. Fraser Robinson is Director of Content for SPACE and Rebecca DiPasquale is Manager of Development for SPACE.
