City Announces World Premiere Date for Original Survivalist Drama Between, May 21

– Summer event series makes exclusive Canadian SVOD debut on shomi following City broadcast –

– Get to know the class of ’15 with companion web series Between Video Yearbook on

TORONTO (Monday, March 9) City and shomi™ today announced the world broadcast premiere date for new premium original drama series Between, starring Jennette McCurdy (iCarly, Sam & Cat). With six, one-hour episodes, Between is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning May 21 on City. Following the broadcast, Between will make its exclusive Canadian SVOD premiere next day on shomi.

In the series premiere episode “School’s Out,” a mysterious virus begins to kill off adults in the small town of Pretty Lake, and those left alive scramble to survive. Wiley Day (McCurdy) is pregnant but she has a plan: she's going to give up the baby and leave Pretty Lake behind forever – that is until the government quarantines a 10-mile radius around the town. Trapped inside, Wiley's best friend Adam (Jesse Carere, Finding Carter), whose plans to attend MIT are dashed, knows their only hope of escape is to find the cause of the virus.

During the chaos, other teen residents take advantage of the ensuing lawlessness. “Creekers” from the edge of town Ronnie (Kyle Mac, Hemlock Grove) and his brother Pat (Jim Watson, The Strain) drive into Pretty Lake for a looting spree, while Chuck (Justin Kelly, Maps to the Stars), a rich-kid athlete, tries to keep some semblance of law in the town his father used to practically own. Gord (Ryan Allen, Blue Mountain State), a farm boy, tries to keep his friends from getting hurt or killed, and Ellen (Sarah Podemski, The Border), a prison guard, tries to save Mark (Jack Murrah, Beauty and the Beast), a young inmate, from a prison gang with a grudge.

Want more Between? Web series Between Video Yearbook, featuring eight, two-minute episodes, follows Amanda, who is on assignment for the school’s yearbook and is interviewing students at Pretty Lake. The series begins pre-outbreak, and continues throughout the quarantine and ensuing chaos, taking an in-depth look at a different character each week. The first episode of the web series premieres on May 18, with new episodes premiering post broadcast every week on

An original series, developed and produced for City, Between was created by Michael McGowan, who executive produces along with Don Carmody (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Goon, Chicago), David Cormican (The Tall Man, Faces in the Crowd), and Naveen Prasad, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Elevation Pictures Corp.
