On Tuesday, October 16, I’ll be moderating a discussion with Arctic Air writers — series creator Ian Weir, showrunner Bob Carney and screenwriter Sarah Dodd. The Writers Guild of Canada puts on these Writers Talking TV events in Toronto (podcasts of past events are here) and Praxis is partnering with them for this first (I think) Vancouver event.
From the media release:
ARCTIC AIR premiered to record numbers for a CBC drama in 2012. The broad based adventure series takes the excitement of shows like ICE PILOTS NWT and gives it a drama sheen. We’ll hear about the logistics of piloting a show set in Yellowknife from Vancouver, and how the show developed and changed in its first season.
When: Tuesday, October 16, 7 -10 pm
Where: SFU Harbor Centre, Room 7000, 555 West Hastings St., Vancouver
Admission is free. Seating is first-come, first-served. Please arrive early to ensure a seat. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
