Hey, remember Derek on Life With Derek? That show with the two combined families with feuding step siblings — that also had confusing sexual tension? Yeah, his name is Michael Seater and he’s pretty kick ass.
He’s actually a director and writer now, with a production team — BrancSeater Productions — under his belt. The second half is Paula Brancatti — who we all know, but we’ll get to that later. The pair teamed up for
This time around, Michael is back with his equally nostalgic co-producer for Sadie’s Last Day On Earth.
The film follows Sadie as she prepares for the apocalypse — except, she’s the only one who knows it’s coming. The film looks like it will touch heavily on common modern teenage anxiety, while incorporating humour and other genres.
Now, this movie is a good thing thanks to it’s dealing with teenage anxiety.
It ALSO includes a bunch of people every Canadian child has come to know and love over the years — so lets take a look:
RICARDO HOYOS: Degrassi: The Next Generation, Degrassi: The Next Class
Munro Chambers (The Latest Buzz, Degrassi: The Next Generation)
Paula Brancatti (The Dark Oracle, Radio Free Roscoe, Degrassi: The Next Generation)
We should also mention someone who helped inspire the film. Seater told MTV in an interview ““I was hanging out with Lauren Collins and Paula Brancati and Lauren looked at me and said, ‘I have an idea for a film: a teenage girl who’s terrified of the apocalypse.”
Lauren Collins (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Life With Derek, In A Heartbeat)
Of course, we can’t forget the director — and everything he’s appeared in during our Family Channel/Disney Channel heavy childhood.
Michael Seater (Life With Derek, 18 To Life, The Zack Files — and guest spots on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Naturally Sadie)
Seater and Brancatti’s last project People Hold On also included Life with Derek’s Ashley Leggat, Degrassi’s Chloe Rose, Radio Free Roscoe’s Ali Mukadam and Brancatti herself. In other words, give us ALL of the nostalgic BrancSeater productions!!!!!
