Stargate veteran writes show about aliens who bring their war to EarthS

Carl Binder was a writer on Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, and now he's signed up as showrunner (and writer of the pilot) for a new Canadian show called Echoes, in which two groups of aliens bring their war to Earth.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Echoes already has a Canadian network lined up to develop the series, and the producers are looking for broadcasters in other countries. Here's the description:

Echoes is set in the year 2021 and follows the journey of Sonya, a young woman trying to survive after two warring extra-terrestrial species bring their intergalactic battle to Earth.

Don Carmody Productions secured the rights to the show from co-creators Ken Kabatoff, Andrew Karr, Mark Savela and Craig Van Den Biggelaar. The article quotes Carmody EVP David Cormican as saying, "With Carl (Binder)’s mastery of the genre and one of the best sci-fi visual effects teams on the planet, we hope to bring the world and aliens of Echoes to life for the millions of fans of the genre the world over."
