Utopia Falls

About the Show

Set in the not-too-distant future, amidst the charred ruins of Earth, UTOPIA FALLS follows a group of teens chosen to compete in the prestigious Exemplar performing arts competition in the seemingly idyllic colony of New Babyl. When they stumble upon a hidden archive of cultural relics, they are forced to question everything they have been taught, ultimately using the power of music to ignite change and expose the truth. The series showcases a variety of musical genres and dance styles (Hip Hop, Pop, Latin, House, Classical, and Indigenous, among others), and features themes of afrofuturism, youth activism, and eco-awareness.

The series stars emerging young actors Robyn Alomar (Riot Girls), Akiel Julien (American Gods, Warigami), Robbie Graham-Kuntz (Full Out), Phillip Lewitski (Supernatural), Humberly Gonzalez (Orphan Black), Devyn Nekoda (Degrassi: The Next Generation), and Mickeey Nguyen (Make It Pop). Also joining the cast are Kate Drummond (Wynonna Earp), Jeff Teravainen (Dark Matter), Huse Madhavji (Saving Hope) and Dwain Murphy (The Strain), and hip hop icon Snoop Dogg as the voice of the Archive.

The acclaimed team of creatives behind the scenes include showrunner Joseph Mallozzi (Dark Matter, Stargate franchise) and creator/director R.T. Thorne (Blindspot, Find Me in Paris) who serve as executive producers. Boi-1da, the renowned music producer (Drake, Rihanna, Eminem, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar), has been tapped as the show’s executive music producer; and choreographer Tanisha Scott, the three-time MTV VMA-nominated choreographer (Cardi B, Rihanna, Sean Paul), rounds out the team.

A CBC Gem original series, UTOPIA FALLS is executive produced by Andrea Gorfolova and Ashley Rite for Sonar Entertainment, with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Programming; Gave Lindo is Executive Director, OTT Programming; Trish Williams is Executive Director, Scripted Content; Mélanie Lê Phan and Zach Feldberg are Executives in Charge of Production, Digital Originals, and Melanie Hadley is Executive in Charge of Production, Drama. All episodes will also be available to stream on Hulu in the United States beginning February 14.
