In a world where the supernatural is known but scorned, werewolves, zombies and beings with supernatural afflictions attempt to live normal lives in human society. Many are closeted. Few are accepted.
To help them fit in, and to navigate the problems in their lives, they come to Dr. Michelle Kessler. A therapist by trade, Kessler is equal parts strong and empathetic, providing her patients a safe space to explore and understand themselves in a world where losing grip could put their families at risk. Self-hatred, alienation. The burdens of carrying impossible secrets. The struggle to feel human.
I am …intrigued. Please Jo tell me this isn’t a Syfy show so I can like it with a clear conscience.
Hey! It’s definitely not a Syfy show, but a series gunning for funding with the Independent Production Fund (yay female-led genre series by Canadians :D). ALSO, Michelle Kessler is queer. You don’t see that in this trailer but it’s an important part of her character and the season.
Basically, to move to the next round, we need to show “engagement” – potential fans that would actually watch. Then we’ll be able to make it free of network notes and shitfuckery!!
(alsooo potential great role for Michelle Forbes as she is in TO for OB right now.)
DID SOMEONE SAY QUEER LADY CHARACTERS ON CANADIAN TV? I’M IN.
