Masterson In Vienna SeriesPosted by T'Bonz - 19/10/12 at 01:10 pm
Last week, Trektoday announced that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Chase Masterson would voice the character of Vienna Salvatori on the Doctor Who: The Shadow Heart series which will be released next month.
Now it has been announced that Masterson will voice her own audio series, Vienna, continuing the adventures of the “impossibly glamorous bounty hunter Vienna Salvatori.”
Vienna will debut in February 2013 with a pilot episode titled The Memory Box. In The Memory Box, “Vienna is on the run from the law, standing accused of murdering a rich industrialist – a crime she may or may not have committed. But is anything quite what it seems?”
“In Vienna, Jonathan Morris has created a character who is smart, sexy and a great deal of fun,” said Co-producer David Richardson. “And Chase just exudes charisma and star quality. When the two came together during the recording of The Shadow Heart, it soon became clear that we had something wonderful.”
“The Memory Box is a great romp – as with The Shadow Heart, writer Jonathan Morris takes us on a ride packed with twists and turns and farce – it’s big fun,” said Masterson.
“And Vienna is one of my favorite characters ever: the endearingly incorrigible killer we loved to hate in The Shadow Heart – completely unapologetic, even charming about her day job as a mercenary assassin,” added Masterson. “Plus, she usually manages to land on the side of justice. Vienna’s quite a turn-on – I think you’ll like her as much as I do.”
The Memory Box will be co-produced by Mark Wright, and directed by Ken Bentley, with Sound design and music by Jamie Robertson. Nicholas Briggs and Jason Haigh-Ellery are executive producers.
Vienna: The Memory Box, can be pre-ordered here, with a CD version selling for $8.05 and a digital download selling for $5.00.
