I was on a conference call this morning with some 40 members of the Syfy International team representing Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Latin America, the U.K., Poland, and the Middle East.  We talked Dark Matter‘s performance overseas (we’re a hit!), what lies ahead for season 2 (big BIG things!), and marketing & publicity ideas for the upcoming season (more cast connections, behind-the-scenes insights, contests and giveaways!).  I was happy to join in  because Syfy International has done such an amazing job supporting Dark Matter – and it’s clear that they genuinely love the show as well.  A huge thanks to everyone who took the time to attend, and thanks to Bipasha Ghosh (VP International Marketing – Syfy) for organizing.  There are some very cool things headed your way…

Like, for instance, the first Dark Matter season 2 promo that will released…sooner than you think!  And when it does, make sure you have that pause button ready because you’re going to want to catch every single frame.  LOTS of little teasers in this one including a VERY interesting one for Android fans.  A great little trailer compliments of Fowzia Iranpur, Bill Trojanowski, Samantha Agnoff, and the rest of the gang at NBCU.  Watch for it!

In the meantime, enjoy saver these BTS pics:

  1. Hi Joe
    I guess we, here in Canada, are not considered ‘international’ enough for the contests and stuff. We are NOT American! 🙂


  2. Is Will holding a scepter or is that a mini-disco ball? Get your groove on! Excited for the upcoming teaser trailer…

    I’ve been trying to comment daily but may be out of pocket starting tomorrow. Traveling, birthday & graduation celebrations, & throwing in a beach trip.

    Happy Friday, weekend & next wk, just in case…

  3. Can’t wait to see the promo. Joe, With the series starting July 1, when would us none Cable subscribers be able to see the show? One of those TBA things I am sure. Oh Just heard Nathan Fillion’s show Castle is canceled. So maybe that Firefly meets DM “Could” become reality? Just teasing.

  4. I obviously didn’t win the SyfyUK contest of a trip to Toronto to visit the set and meet the cast and crew. I had my bags packed and everything!

  5. Did they mention if it will be available in Sweden in some way? We did not get season 1 on TV, and it is not on HBO Nordic or Netflix here 🙁
