Sanctuary Gets TV Deal

The web series Sanctuary, starring Amanda Tapping, has been picked up for a 13 episode run on the SciFi channel in the US. This should mean Space Channel in Canada should also get the show by Damian Kindler, who we had the pleasure of interviewing. It should be interesting to see how the format changes as the 15 minute webisodes will be transferred to the tv screen in a longer format. One can point to this as a sign of failure of the internet as a medium on its own that can sustain shows like this without the need of other mediums, but there is also the point that shows like this can offer a chance for creators to truly explore their creative urges while having direct contact with fans who can also participate in the production through their instant input of ideas. This whole announcement kind of reminds me of Penny Arcade and Megatokyo, who have made the successful jump to graphic novels from being purely web comics. This should only serve to widen the popularity of the show and the potential for more productions like it to start up. Check out more info HERE
