Continuum is a Canadian science fiction, crime thriller television series about a law enforcement official from the future who travels back to the present to capture a gang of terrorists. The series premiered on Canada's Showcase network in May of 2012. It debuted on the United States cable network known as SyFy in January of 2013.
The world of 2077 is one of haves and have not's. Run by gigantic corporations whose representatives form a global Corporate Congress, the planet's population is constantly kept at bay by high-tech surveillance units that attempt to tamp down any opposition. While many people enjoy a higher standard of living, despite the reduction in certain freedoms, a large segment of the population remains poor, thanks to the thousands of dollars of debts accumulated by them and other relatives throughout the generations.
A group of eight freedom fighters, known as Liber8, decide to take a stand against the corporate greed and commit a series of terrorist attacks in 2077 that kill thousands of people. Eventually, they are captured and prepared for execution. However, they manage to escape not just from the Vancouver jail they were sentenced to, but from 2077 itself. During their escape through time, they involuntarily take law enforcement official Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) along with them.
Transported to 2012, Cameron is committed to capturing the members of Liber8 and sending them all back to the future in order for her to reunite with her family and, if possible, maintain the current timeline. After an initial misunderstanding, Cameron joins the present-day Vancouver police department and is paired with Detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster).
Cameron utilizes equipment from her City Protective Services (CPS) uniform to aide in the search for the terrorists. The uniform enhances her strength and gives her the ability of invisibility as well an energy shield for protection. Cameron also utilizes the skills of Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), a computer tech who knows Cameron's true identity and happens to be the CEO of a huge corporation in 2077.
Continuum is created by Simon Barry, and is produced by Barry and Sara B. Cooper. The series is produced by Reunion Pictures, in association with Boy Meets Girl Film Company.
