Played Interactive (Interference)

Type: Webisodes/Convergent

Writer: Bobby Theodore

Project Summary: System hacked. Covers blown. CIU is offline. With the team deep undercover investigating the notorious Titan Syndicate, Khali discovers a massive security breach in the CIU (Covert Investigations Unit) network. The entire team’s identities are out in the open and a mysterious hacker is interfering with the CIU’s surveillance and communications, preventing Khali and Rebecca from warning the under covers.

Oblivious to the threat, Moreland, Jesse, Daniel, and Maria carry out their covert “plays,” while Khali and Rebecca resort to extreme measures and enlist the help of an outsider to steer the team out of deadly circumstances. That outsider is you.

“Interference” is your chance to dive into the world of “Played” and help the CIU agents on a series of high-stakes plays. Each episode follows a member of the undercover team into the criminal underworld as they look to bring down the Titan Syndicate, and when things go sideways it’s up to you to intervene. Interact using your phone, computer and Facebook account, connecting the team members and warning them of the impending danger.

But as each team member is brought to safety, Khali and Rebecca come to realize that the Syndicate’s reach goes deeper than they ever expected, and that interfering with them has dangerous consequences for everyone involved.

Last Call

Type: Convergent Series

Writers: Amanda Fahey; Karen Moore

Project Summary: “Last Call” features the characters of Saving Hope in some down time – bellying up to the bar and perhaps indulging in one too many and the lost inhibitions that can prompt. Performer Kristopher Turner (Gavin) noted that when he read the script for one particular exchange with Charlie, he laughed out loud: “it’s one of my favourite scenes I’ve ever done on the show.”

Motive (The Dark Corner)

Type: Webisodes/Convergent

Writer: Travis McDonald

Project Summary: THE DARK CORNER is an original, eight-part web series that takes audiences deeper into the world of MOTIVE when a cold case comes to light with unexpected results. Each webisode is a piece of a larger puzzle, allowing viewers to explore one intriguing aspect of the cold case that still torments MOTIVE's Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom. Also featuring MOTIVE's Detective Brian Lucas and Dr. Betty Rogers, the story revolves around an incident in Bloom's past where he was injured by the gunfire that killed his rookie partner. This injury sidelined him to the desk job he has today. The case was never solved and Bloom wasn’t permitted access to the case files. Ten years later, Lucas, a junior detective, stumbles upon a possible present-day lead in this old case. He is keen to dig into the past and Bloom seizes the opportunity to finally put this case to rest, but before Lucas and Bloom can solve the case, they have to figure out if they can even work together.
