UNSPEAKABLE: Premieres tomorrow night (Jan 9, 2018)

REMINDER: Aaron’s new tv series UNSPEAKABLE premieres tomorrow night (January 9) at 9pm on CBC in Canada. It’s an 8-part miniseries based on the true events of the Canadian tainted blood scandal, chronicling the decades long saga of two families impacted by one of the biggest medical disasters in Canada’s history. Aaron’s character Jim Krepke doesn’t show up until episode 4 but I suggest that you watch from the first episode because it’s an important story that needs to be seen and also so that you become emotionally involved in these characters.

Here is the synopsis for the first episode …

1×01: Emergence (1982 – 1983)
In 1982, two families, the Sanders (played by Michael Shanks and Sarah Wayne Callies) and the Landrys (played by Shawn Doyle and Camille Sullivan), are badly shaken when they learn that a mysterious deadly disease called AIDS is threatening the blood system. Each has boys with hemophilia, a genetic condition that means they depend on blood products to live. The medical community struggles to understand the growing epidemic while others deny the urgency.

And for those that missed it in previous posts, here is the trailer:

NOTE: UNSPEAKABLE will be airing on SundanceTV in the USA and AMC Studios will manage worldwide distribution outside of Canada but no dates have been released as yet. I’ve heard whispers that it might be airing in April in America. But as soon as hear any official word I’ll let everyone know.
