DESCRIPTION: (from Sci Fi's web site, September 2008) Charlie Jade is a rogue private detective in a world dominated by greedy multinational corporations. When Charlie sees the corpse of a beautiful young woman, he realizes she embodies the impossible: She has no identity, which is inconceivable in Charlie's world. While tracking her suspected killer, Charlie discovers a secret desert facility. A massive explosion propels him into a parallel universe that seduces him with its similarities and baffles him with its differences. Charlie is soon drawn into a conflict that involves his home universe, the one he now inhabits as well as a third universe. The third world is pristine and pacifist … with unsuspected terror at its heart. The show's creators are Robert Wertheimer (Bollywood/Hollywood, Due South, Robocop: The Series) and Chris Roland (Stander, Man to Man, The Bone Snatcher). Charlie Jade is written by Guy Mullally (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World, Little Men), David Cole (Cold Squad, Due South), Stephen Zoller (Anne of Green Gables, The Windsor Protocol) and Alex Epstein (Galidor). Executive producers are Wertheimer, Roland, Izidore Codron, Robin Spry and Jacques Pettigrew. Series regulars include: Jeffrey Pierce (The Others, West Wing, JAG) as Charlie, Marie-Julie Rivest (Savage Messiah), Michael Filipowich (Starhunter, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind), Tyrone Benskin (Deacons for Defense, The Long Island Incident), Michelle Burgers (The Schoolmaster, Sinbad), Danny Keogh (Citizen Verdict, Sinbad) and Patricia McKenzie (Stardom, No Alibi). A cross-section of directors from both Canada and South Africa provide the series' highly cinematic, cutting-edge signature style. Directors include T.J. Scott (Hercules, Xena, La Femme Nikita), Darrel James Roodt (City of Blood, Sarafina!) Jimmy Kaufman (Due South, Stargate SG-1) and Neal Sundstrom (Inside Out, Homeland). Post-production and state-of-the-art CGI were handled by CineGroupe in Montreal, who in the last year produced two U.S. series — Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension and Tripping the Rift.
