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.
