DESCRIPTION:
(from SundanceTV's press release, July 2017) CBC and SundanceTV have greenlit a new eight-part drama miniseries "Unspeakable," focused on the tainted blood scandal in Canada in the early 1980s. Created by Robert C. Cooper ("Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency," "Stargate SG-1," "Stargate: Atlantis"), who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer, the project is produced by Cooper's Mezo Entertainment and will be filmed in Canada in early 2018 for broadcast on CBC in Canada and SundanceTV in the U.S., with AMC Studios managing worldwide distribution outside of Canada. Based on first-person experience and two non-fiction books, Bad Blood by Vic Parsons and The Gift of Death by Andre Picard, "Unspeakable" chronicles the emergence of HIV and Hepatitis C in Canada in the early 1980s and the tragedy that resulted after thousands of people were unnecessarily infected by tainted blood. One of the largest medical disasters in Canadian history, the blood scandal triggered a federal inquiry and precedent-setting lawsuit resulting in billions of dollars of compensation to victims. The series is a passion project for Cooper, who himself was a victim, having contracted Hepatitis C from tainted blood.
