FanTrust client Omni Film partnering with FOX and CTV on new series

CTV, along with Vancouver’s Omni Film Productions Limited and Fox Television Studios, jointly announced today they will partner on a new, one-hour Canadian drama series, Defying Gravity.

Executive produced by series creator and award-winning writer/producer James Parriott (Grey’s Anatomy) and Michael Edelstein (Desperate Housewives), Defying Gravity is a Canadian/U.S. co-venture that will air in Canada on CTV and SPACE, in the United Kingdom on BBC and in Germany on ProSieben.

Defying Gravity is a sexy, provocative relationship drama set in the very near future against the background of our solar system, in which eight astronauts from five countries (four women and four men) undertake a mysterious six-year international space mission covering eight billion miles. With the eyes of the world upon them – everything they do is monitored, and every emotion they feel, scrutinized – they soon discover that their real assignment is not at all what they thought.

“Omni Film is tremendously excited to lift off on this historic journey,” affirmed Canadian Executive Producer Brian Hamilton for Omni Film Productions. “Defying Gravity is a unique programming event which will appeal to fans of relationship dramas like Grey’s Anatomy, and passionate sci-fi aficionados as well.”
