Web Series Spotlight: Inhuman Condition

By  | 

In early 2012, RJ Lackie completed writing a 100+ page web series that he called The Inhuman Condition, which won him a TARA Award at the Canadian University for which he attended. That web series was bought by Smokebomb Entertainment, part of the Shaftesbury Company, a film, television and digital media production company based in Toronto, Canada since 1987.

Shaftesbury is a creator and producer of original content for television and multiple platforms, with programming available in more than 120 countries worldwide. Their digital arm oversees KindaTV, which can be viewed through YouTube. Lackie’s project, now titled Inhuman Condition, was selected for funding by the Independent Production Fund in 2014, and eventually premiered as a full-fledged web series on KindaTV on July 4, 2016.

Inhuman Condition is set in a world where supernaturally afflicted persons need help integrating into human society, and Dr. Michelle Kessler (Torri Higginson from Stargate: Atlantis and Dark Matter) is there to help. She’s a therapist there to help strange people come to terms with who and what they are, to listen to their problems and try to help them with the strange horrors that filter through the cracks of their lives. The other main characters include Tamar (Cara Gee), Clara Walker (Clara Pasieka) and Robert “Linc” Lincoln (Thomas Olajide). Also included in the cast is Robin Dunne (Sanctuary).

The first season consists of 33 five-to-eight minute episodes, all of which can be viewed here:
