Gaze into your crystal ball, dear readers. Oh I’m sorry, I meant Youtube. Gaze into your Youtube now and you will see the very brief but very funny teaser trailer for the new KindaTV/Smokebomb show, CLAIREvoyant. Created, written by, and starring Annie Briggs and Natasha Negovanlis (who also co-starred in Carmilla together), CLAIREvoyant tells the tale of two desperate con artists, Claire (Negovanlis) and Ruby (Briggs) who decide to launch a fake online psychic business to prevent themselves from being evicted from their apartment. The catch is, it turns out that Claire actually is psychic.
The series surpassed its crowd-sourcing campaign on Indiegogo last year and has been amping up their social media presence as of late. You don’t need to be a psychic to know that something magical is coming. Negovanlis’ Claire is an out queer woman, who has a big crush on another character, Nico (Sabryn Rock, currently playing Joan in the Toronto production of Fun Home) who we get to see in the teaser as well.
