TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2009 /CNW/ - On Tuesday nights in 2009, VisionTV will journey to the distant future and delve deep into otherworldly realms.

Beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 27, Canada's multi-faith and multicultural television network premieres two original new Canadian documentary anthology series that will take viewers to worlds far beyond our own.

The 17-part series I Prophesy: The Future Revealed, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, examines the predictions of present-day oracles. Combining dramatizations, CGI sequences, and interviews with world renowned scientists, authors and intellectuals, the I Prophesy documentaries consider the possible futures that may await us: from a world in which physical sex no longer exists and humans live for a thousand years, to doomsday scenarios in which our civilization is erased by asteroid collisions or epic floods.

The I Prophesy documentaries were produced for VisionTV by Arcadia Entertainment Inc., Henry Less Productions and Partners in Motion Inc.

Supernatural Investigator, airing Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT, takes a critical look at paranormal phenomena in an attempt to separate fact from fiction. Each half-hour documentary follows an expert investigator as he or she brings rigorous, real-life scrutiny to a search for the truth behind so-called supernatural happenings. Canada's foremost science fiction writer, Hugo Award winner Robert J. Sawyer, hosts the 17-part series.

The Supernatural Investigator documentaries were produced for VisionTV by Arcadia Entertainment Inc., Elevator Films, Ocean Entertainment Ltd., Paradocs, Riddle Films Inc. and Sorcery Films Ltd.

VisionTV's Tuesday night lineup also features the science-fiction drama series Quantum Leap (9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT) and Poltergeist: The Legacy (weeknights at 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT).


I Prophesy: The Future Revealed
Premieres Tuesday, Jan. 27, 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT

"Dude, Where's My Flying Car?" - Over the past century, science fiction authors have often proved uncannily accurate in their predictions. Can today's generation of SF writers offer useful clues about the shape of tomorrow? In this premiere episode, Hugo Award-winning Canadian science fiction novelist Robert J. Sawyer (Hominids) ponders which of our contemporary fantasies may end up as reality. Will robots do our household cooking and cleaning? Will humanity colonize other worlds? And, most important: will we finally get flying cars? Produced by Arcadia Entertainment Inc.
