Last week, GateWorld reported about the brand-new series, Primeval: New World, a Canadian-based spin-off of the original popular British genre series — and that longtime Stargate and Sanctuary director/executive producer Martin Wood was on-board to bring his talents to the new incarnation.
As it turns out, more members of the Stargate family are also attached to the new project. While casting announcements are still pending, a source within the production has confirmed to GateWorld that in addition to Wood, several familiar names are slated to direct episodes of the series’ inaugural season.
Those names include Andy Mikita and Amanda Tapping. Mikita has a long history with the Stargate franchise, having been a producer on all three series and directing over sixty episodes of them throughout the years. Tapping’s directing credits include her debut stint in SG-1 Season Seven‘s “Resurrection,” along with several episodes of her current series Sanctuary.
Also confirmed to direct is Mike Rohl, who — while having never worked on Stargate — has extensive credits within many Vancouver-based productions including The Outer Limits, Smallville, Sanctuary, Eureka, Supernatural, and more.
