Upcoming: Causality

What if you could go anywhere in history except home?
In the world of Causality - a new web series currently in pre-production from Ulterior Motive Productions and coming up in December - people can travel in time.

Everyone comes to the past for their own reasons. Some do it for curiosity, some for escape, some to avoid wars and disasters. But they all know one thing: they’ll be starting a new life, in a strange new century. But be careful, because once you’ve come to the past, you can never return to your own time.

In Causality, Holly Wells accidentally arrives in the present day from just five years in the future and Seattle’s hidden community of time travelers is nearly torn apart as she tries to rebuild her life, change her destiny, and ultimately, find something she can call home. But she didn’t come back alone . . .

Here is the first teaser: 

With influences ranging from the neon grit of Bladerunner to the Pacific Northwest noir chill of Twin Peaks, this time travel web series is a unique vision of loss, hope, and all the things we can’t leave behind.

Cancelled ABC Shows Get Another Life to Live Online

Back in April ABC announced they cancelled All My Children and One Life to Live. All my children has been on the air since 1970 and One Life to Live even since 1968. You might think the genre soap opera is dead! Especially since Proctor & Gamble, who both sponsored and helped develop some TV soaps decided to move online and cancelled their sponsorship, which meant the end of those shows.

But now ABC and Prospect Park issued a joint press release on Thursday that the shows will be distributed beyond their planned finale dates “via online formats and additional emerging platforms including Internet enabled television sets.” The soaps will continue to run at the same lengths and “with the same quality,” according to the release. The deal comes after former Fox News host Glenn Beck announced last month that his canceled show will continue online - for a fee - starting in September.

The web is not only a home for new content, but also for cancelled TV series!
