The genre-focused company will work to develop original TV series and features for the domestic and international market. Continuum creator-showrunner Simon Barry and Brightlight founder Stephen Hegyes said their Vancouver-based Reality Distortion Field will seek out projects with layered mysteries, smart mythologies, expansive worlds and heady sociopolitical themes. “As a longtime fan of genre television and movies, I’ve always wanted to establish a company and brand that reflected both my fanboy nerd roots and passion for intelligent entertainment,” Barry said. Added Hegyes, “RDF will be a brand-based company that produces multi-platform content anchored in traditional windows.”
