The Outpost - new fantasy show on the CW

8 posts in this topic

CW picks up a 10-episode fantasy series called The Outpost, from Stargate film & tv creators in their first collaboration.  It'll appear on CW this summer, and outside of the U.S. on SyFy's international channels.

Quote

Talon (Jessica Green, Ash vs Evil Dead), the lone survivor of a race called “Blackbloods.” Years after her entire village is destroyed by a gang of brutal mercenaries, Talon travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world, as she tracks the killers of her family. On her journey to this outpost, Talon discovers she possesses a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself, and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.

Jake Stormoen (Extinct, Mythica), Imogen Waterhouse (Nocturnal Animals, Braid) Andrew Howard (Hatfields and McCoys, Hell on Wheels), Anand Desai-Barochia (Emmerdale, Lake Mead) and Robyn Malcolm (Top of the Lake, Hostiles) also star.

A Facebook acquaintance ("Xander" from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and apparently Leif Erikson  on Legends of Tomorrow) is appearing it regularly too, so that's kind of neat.  Really it's the only reason I made a thread at all.  He seems quite excited about it.  I'll give it a shot.

I guess it'll feature attractive 20-30 year olds with a lot of interpersonal angst if it's CW.

Curious about it involving a collaboration with Stargate TV and film creators. If it's the good showrunners from sg-1 then who knows what kind of world they could build. CW is pretty well known for letting shows run a long time. And Stargate was definitely a show that moved forwards.

The first sentence made me think for a second it was a spin off from The 100, with "Blackbloods" and "Nightbloods".  Looking forward to new season of The 100 in April.

Will give this show a shot.

These CW shows are a guilty pleasure... especially the ones that are on at 8PM ... but this looks like it could be fun, in a PG /YA kind of way... ..

I remember seeing his name around.  Was he ever a boarder here?
