Specialty network Showcase is prepping for its third season of the original drama, Lost Girl, with a season opening special and a new mobile gaming app
Kicking off the third season is Lost Girl ConFAEdential, a catch-up show where faenatics can interact with the cast as they discuss the on and off camera antics of the past two seasons. The special is set to air before the season three premiere, January 6 on Showcase.
The all-new mobile app, Lost Girl: the Game, is a connected social experience for international fans of the show. Featuring an original storyline, written by the show's writing staff, the game invites fans to create a customized Fae character used to navigate additional content from the world of Lost Girl. Users can solve puzzles and brain benders with the help of their favourite Lost Girl characters.
Developed for iOS and Android devices, the free mobile gaming app launches in January 2013 via showcase.ca.
Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo, a tough yet loveable Succubus who feeds off sexual energy. After realizing she is one of the Fae creatures of legend and folklore who live among humans, Bo refuses to choose an allegiance to either the Dark or Light Fae clans, leading her on a personal path of discovery.
The series welcomes Rachel Skarsten (The Vow, Flashpoint) to the cast as Tamsin, a thrill-seeking, sexy new Fae who ruffles many feathers. Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Covert Affairs) reprises her role as The Morrigan, the leader of the Dark Fae. Making a special guest star appearance is two-time Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress Linda Hamilton (The Terminator, Beauty and the Beast) as Acacia, a tough, sexy and ruthless assassin. Rounding out the cast are series regulars Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland and K.C. Collins.
Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive Producers are Jay Firestone, Emily Andras, Plato Fountidakis, and Paul Rapovski. James Thorpe is Co-Executive Producer, Vanessa Piazza is Co-Producer and Wanda Chaffey is Producer.
Lost Girl is produced with the participation of the Canadian Media Fund created by the Government of Canada and the Canadian cable industry, and with the assistance of the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit Program.
