Boasting a robust collection of dynamic hit original programs including Lost Girl, Rookie Blue and Bomb Girls, Shaw Media is proud to present another homegrown series, Out of Time – a one-hour, futuristic, procedural police drama. Out of Time focuses on Kyra Cameron, a regular cop from the future who finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver. Produced by Reunion Pictures Inc., the 10-episode series is set to air on Showcase in spring 2012.
Kyra is alone, in a strange land, in pursuit of nine of the most ruthless criminals from the year 2077 after they managed to escape execution through a rift in time. Armed with advanced technology, her most powerful weapon – a multi-tasking wearable second skin that doubles as a communication device – is malfunctioning. As Kyra calls for backup on her suit’s command frequency, Alex Sadler – a current-day tech genius – hears her call. Kyra wants to get home but first she must use the resources available to track and capture these terrorists before they alter history, changing the course of the future forever.
