VisionTV launches Sci-Fi & Supernatural Tuesdays

    TORONTO, Jan. 12 /CNW/ - On Tuesday nights in 2009, VisionTV will journey
to the distant future and delve deep into otherworldly realms.
    Beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 27, Canada's multi-faith and multicultural
television network premieres two original new Canadian documentary anthology
series that will take viewers to worlds far beyond our own.
    The 17-part series I Prophesy: The Future Revealed, airing Tuesdays at 10
p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, examines the predictions of present-day oracles.
Combining dramatizations, CGI sequences, and interviews with world renowned
scientists, authors and intellectuals, the I Prophesy documentaries consider
the possible futures that may await us: from a world in which physical sex no
longer exists and humans live for a thousand years, to doomsday scenarios in
which our civilization is erased by asteroid collisions or epic floods.
    The I Prophesy documentaries were produced for VisionTV by Arcadia
Entertainment Inc., Henry Less Productions and Partners in Motion Inc.
    Supernatural Investigator, airing Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m.
PT, takes a critical look at paranormal phenomena in an attempt to separate
fact from fiction. Each half-hour documentary follows an expert investigator
as he or she brings rigorous, real-life scrutiny to a search for the truth
behind so-called supernatural happenings. Canada's foremost science fiction
writer, Hugo Award winner Robert J. Sawyer, hosts the 17-part series.
    The Supernatural Investigator documentaries were produced for VisionTV by
Arcadia Entertainment Inc., Elevator Films, Ocean Entertainment Ltd.,
Paradocs, Riddle Films Inc. and Sorcery Films Ltd.
    VisionTV's Tuesday night lineup also features the science fiction drama
series Quantum Leap (9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT) and Poltergeist: The Legacy
(weeknights at 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT).
