The convention is scheduled for August 14-15. The exact time and date of Amanda’s one-hour panel is yet to be announced.

Motherland: New Episodes Directed by Amanda Tapping

Freeform has announced the premiere date of Motherland: Fort Salem‘s second season. ‘Of The Blood’ will air on Tuesday, June 22 at 10 p.m. ET on Freeform and the day after on Hulu. The following week, ‘Abomination’ will air. Both episodes have been directed by Amanda, who also directed the season’s finale.

This season, Amanda is not only behind the camera as a director but also as a producer, helping to make sure that the show is running smoothly. In a recent interview at The Companion, she named some of her tasks in that role: hire directors, prep with them, help them to stay within schedule, make sure that actors and crew are taken care of and happy, post-production tasks like music spotting and visual effects reviews and more. “I’m like Mama Bear, basically. I’m a mom. I walk around and just be everyone’s mom – and psychiatrist”, she summarized laughing during the interview.


Updates From The Companion

During today’s conversation at The Companion (Amanda Tapping in Conversation: Uplifting Women in Film & TV), Amanda not only talked about her work in front and behind the camera and its challenges.
She also revealed that she’ll be working on the trailer for the pilot of a new sci-fi show. The trailer will be shot on a LED Volume stage, which is a relatively new technology also used in the series The Mandalorian. “…and then, you know, I can show it to The Mandalorian and say, ‘Hire me, please, come on!'” Amanda then said half-jokingly. Well, we’d definitely support that! #Amandalorian!
The other project she’s working on is the movie Home(less) which she will direct. Home(less) by Trembling Vøid Studio explores the experiences of a young trans man who ages out of the foster care system and ends up on the streets of Vancouver. Amanda emphasized how important it is to her and the team to involve the actual homeless community of Downtown Eastside Vancouver in the project to ensure a proper portrayal.

Subscribers who missed the interview can watch the full video here.
Fans of Amanda can also look forward to two more podcasts with Amanda these next few weeks at The Companion. One will be with Brad Wright, co-creator of Stargate, and the other will focus on the topic of mental health.
