This morning, we got a little bit of an unexpected surprise while covering the upfront for Corus up in Canada: An Absentia trailer.

Before we dive into it, here are a few things to note: Alas, we don’t have any video to share. If we were to share it, we would probably disappear in a way similar to Stana Katic’s Emily Byrne. We’re also going to be hesitant to get into too many details at this time. That’ll come, guys! Have no fear.

The big impression that we want to give is that the first real footage we saw of the series was wonderfully atmospheric, haunting, and powerful. The entire premise of the show was laid out: Emily was gone for an extended period of time, and in that time the life for her husband Nick Durand was changed. You get a sense of his old life, and how he learns that Emily is still alive. Many of the images that you’ve seen in promotional art for the show to date will come into play in some shape or form. The same goes for some of the quotes that you may have heard to date. Everyone who’s been behind the promotional campaign for the show to date has been very intelligent and deliberate with what they’ve chosen to say.

It’s hard to judge an entire series based solely on a clip, one that we weren’t exactly able to watch too many times consecutively. What we can say, though, is that Absentia looks like it will be a really entertaining, addicting drama. Obviously if you loved Katic on Castle, you’re going to love her here and then some since she’ll be at the forefront for so much of the material. Beyond that, this show should appeal to those of you who love tales of identity where the mystery lasts a little bit longer than a single episode. It was a very solid trailer — obviously, it got the basic idea of the show out there for those who may not have heard about it previously, but it also made it clear that this is going to be a layered drama with some great characters and many reasons for Katic to attract new fans. It’s also pretty stunning visually, as well.

Eventually, we do think an official trailer will be released publicly, but it may be somewhat different than what we saw (which was mostly for the sake of showing Canadian advertisers). Absentia will air on Showcase in Canada this fall.

Once again, it’s time to plan a project for Stana’s birthday. This year, we’re going to be creating a booklet/PDF to send to Stana. The concept of the book is “Things We’ve Learned From Stana Katic” so we want you to send us a sentence or two (no more than a paragraph) of something you’ve learned from Stana. This can be something serious and meaningful, or something completely funny and random. You can submit up to two entries for the book. Please email your entries to stanakaticnet@yahoo.com and include your name. If you want to include your age, location or twitter name that’s optional.

We want to end the book by saying we’ve learned from Stana how to be charitable/giving, so if you’re able, we ask you to consider making a donation to a local organization or charity in honor of Stana’s birthday. We want to be able to show Stana that she’s inspired us to give back to our own communities and we’ll list the places that received donations. If possible, try to donate to an organization focused on children’s welfare or the environment, as we know those are the causes Stana is most passionate about. If you’re unsure of a local organization to donate to, you can always give to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles or The Alternative Travel Project. Please email a copy of the receipt to stanakaticnet@yahoo.com so that we’ll know which organizations to list in the book.

If you have any questions, you can always ask through Twitter: @StanaCentral @BRStanaKatic @TheStanaTimes @StanaKaticPH and @stana_katic_fr or email.

The deadline for all submissions is Sunday, April 2nd 11:59 PM EST.

Here’s a tease of The Rendezvous bloopers! From Amin Matalqa (Director of The Rendezvous) on instagram: “Okay, for everyone waiting impatiently as I am for #theRendezvous to be released, here’s a little slice of the blooper reel. I’ll share the news about the release as soon as I can. Thanks for waiting. In the meantime here’s a glimpse of Stana Katic, Raza Jaffrey, Alfonso Bassave, Meg Cionni and Nadim Sawalha.

The new film “Lost in Florence” takes a hard look at love, sorrow and the healing power of sports in the heart of Florence, Italy. When his girlfriend turns down his marriage proposal on a trip to Florence, former college football star Eric Lombard (Brett Dalton) stays behind with his cousin Anna (Stana Katic) and her Italian husband to heal his wounds. While he’s there, they introduce him to calcio storico, an ancient form of football played every summer in Florence that combines rugby and street fighting. During his time there, Eric falls for Stefania (Alessandra Mastronardi), the girlfriend of his teammate Paolo (Alessandro Preziosi), and tries to learn what makes life worth living. It co-stars Emily Atack (“The Inbetweeners”), Robert Aramayo (“Game of Thrones”) and Marco Bonini (“Under the Tuscan Sun”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

The film is written and directed by Evan Oppenheimer. It is his sixth feature film following “A Little Game,” “The Speed of Thought,” “Alchemy,” “Justice” and “The Auteur Theory.”

“Lost in Florence” opens in theaters nationwide and on VOD on Friday, January 27, courtesy of Orion Pictures. For more information, visit the film’s official website or check out its Facebook page.

Synopsis
 
When Eric Lombard proposes to his girlfriend Colleen during a romantic trip to Florence, he is shocked when she turns him down and heads back home. Heartbroken, he stays behind with his cousin Anna and her Italian husband who introduces him to calcio storico, an ancient form of football played every summer in Florence that combines rugby and street fighting. As a former college football star, Eric is a natural at the sport, and while many of the local Italians have their reservations about an American playing their beloved game, he proves himself again and again on the field and ultimately wins their approval.

During his time in Florence, Eric finds himself falling for Stefania, the girlfriend of his teammate Paolo. As their clandestine relationship heats up and the all-important final game approaches, Eric finds himself at a crossroads – caught between friendship and love, having to decide what he really wants and how hard he’s willing to fight for it.
