SCI FI Channel has acquired the U.S. broadcast rights to the science-fiction series “Charlie Jade” from Park Entertainment.

The series follows Charlie Jade, a rogue private detective in a world dominated by greedy multi-national corporations. When Charlie sees the corpse of a beautiful young woman, he realizes that she has no identity, something inconceivable in Charlie’s world. While investigating the case he is led to a parallel universe and is drawn into a conflict with far-ranging, multi-dimensional effects.

Created by Chris Roland and Robert Wertheimer, the series is written by Guy Mullally, David Cole and Stephen Zoller. It is executive produced by Robert Wertheimer, Chris Roland, Izidore Codron, Robin Spry and Jacques Pettigrew.

“Charlie Jade” has already aired in France, Italy, the U.K., Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Canada and South Africa. Post-production and CGI for the series was handled by CinéGroupe in Montréal, who over the last year have produced two series, “Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension” and “Tripping The Rift,” for the U.S. networks.

“I am delighted that SCI FI has agreed to acquire ‘Charlie Jade’,” said Jim Howell, the CEO of Park Entertainment.

“Since the show was made, the Internet has been abuzz with enquires about when the series will be shown on television in the U.S. and available on DVD and to download. I am pleased to say that sci-fi fans will not have to wait much longer!,” echoed Robert Wertheimer.

    CHARLIE JADE…just saw the first SiFi Channel episode. Doesn’t do it for me (ardent sci-fi-guy) or for my wife (enthusiastic newcomer to Friday night relaxations.*

    NOTE: Relaxations, NOT letdowns…as Jade certainly proved to be: I take NO pleasure in saying so. Something else this way comes?

    I am thrilled with the show. I’ve seen 2 episodes on Sci-Fi and the writing style so reminds me of the intrigue my husband creates in his roleplaying worlds. Now I want the DVD. Anyone know how to acquire it?

    Starting with episode 3, they have banished Charlie Jade to 3 AM sometime in the middle of the week. So, folk did not miss an episode Friday night.

    Anyone who thinks Charlie Jade is a let down should really just watch the whole season before they say anything. The first 4 episodes are somewhat slow, but necessary. As you get past those, the story takes off, and became one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. 01 Boxer is probably the best character ever created. So dont give up after one episode Russ Williams, because you’ll miss out on an excellent show if you do.

    Plus this show is far better than any other Sci-Fi show they have on right now. I just can’t believe people would give up on a show after only 3 episodes. Kinda shows how short the attention span of American viewers are. Not saying much for us.

    I think this is a really good show… I know that SciFi has a habit of shelving good – half known – shows, but I hope this one gains a half life. It has twists and turns that keeps a person interested but I expect that it is not enough…

    I have seen the whole series on DVD and I can’t stop thinking about it. It took a few episodes to get into it, but half way through – I thought this is a great show. And the season final was just amazing!! I hope they make a second season!!!
