Sci Fi Fidelity

SFF07: Penny Dreadful, Killjoys, Joseph Mallozzi (Dark Matter)



With San Diego Comic Con on the horizon, the hosts of Sci Fi Fidelity take some time to discuss the importance of conventions both to the creative talent behind everyone’s favorite television shows and to the fandom they serve. What do they get out of the experience, both financially and personally? Why do people go to conventions in the first place?The shows up for discussion this month are Penny Dreadful, a Showtime series that sadly ended its run this summer, and Killjoys, a space drama on Syfy that weaves a nicely complex culture and inhabits it with interesting and genuinely likable characters.Killjoys’ companion series on Syfy is another spacefaring show called Dark Matter, and this month’s interview is with Dark Matter’s showrunner, co-creator, and executive producer, Joseph Mallozzi. He shares some of the vision behind the creation of the show as well as what viewers can expect from season 2.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
