Summer really enjoys Stitchers… could you tell?
This week, Stitchers with show creator and executive producer Jeffrey Alan Schechter returns to talk spoilers for Season 1 and hints at what will come for Season 2. He fields questions about character observations, potential conspiracies and adversaries around the Stitchers program, and talks more about the social media snowball that the show became, and teases the upcoming special Halloween episode that’s part of ABC Family’s “13 Nights of Halloween” programming.

In this special episode, Tim Callender, Jill Heller and Jackie Zwirn join Summer to talk about William Shatner’s “Chaos on the Bridge: The Untold Story Behind Star Trek’s Next Generation”.

This week, Summer talks more Stitchers with show creator and executive producer Jeffrey Alan Schechter. We go into how the idea that grew into the show came about, and about having fun with some of the winks at geek culture being slyly dropped into conversations, and about building characters that feel real.
We also tease the upsoming season finale (“Full Stop”, airing Aug 4 on ABC Family). But not too much… no spoilers here, we’re saving those for later.

This week, Summer talks with Stitchers lead Emma Ishta about the breakout new hit “scifi procedural” for ABC Family.
The chemistry between the characters and the fast-moving witty geek banter are engaging and appealing, and the additional exploration of how emotions (or lack thereof) affect people and interpersonal connections is fascinating. What remains to be seen (perhaps to be explored in the newly announced Season 2) are the bigger mysteries of the program and Kirsten’s familial connection to it. [Listen to the show…]
Killjoys is another show Syfy shares with Space Channel, and given that it’s created by the same creative team behind Lost Girl and Orphan Black, I’m willing to bet that both the intrigue and the stakes will continue to ratchet up for our cast of characters. [Read more…]
