Tahmoh Penikett – “Riftworld Chronicles” wins at NYTVF!


"Riftworld Chronicles" premieres JULY 14 on the CBC Punchline website!

Riftworld Chronicles – the CBC Punchline webseries starring Tahmoh Penikett and Erin Karpluk – has won “Best Drama Pilot” at the 2015 New York TV Festival!

The series is a spin-off from the shortfilm “The Portal” and was produced after a succesful crowdfunding campaign. The first season of “Riftworld Chronicles” premiered on CBC Punchline earlier this year, a second season hasn’t been announced (yet?). Tahmoh portrays the role of “Alar”, A dimension-traveling wizard who gets stuck in 21st century Toronto.

The New York TV Festival is a week-long celebration that features screenings of the best independently-produced content, panels and talkbacks with industry leaders and creative luminaries, and red-carpet premieres with the stars and creatives behind the seasons’ most anticipated new network and cable shows.

You can also find out more on “Riftworld Chronicles” in the interview we had with Tahmoh earlier this year!
