|(Host - InnerSPACE)|
|As host of InnerSPACE, TEDDY WILSON goes above and beyond the call of duty to bring the world of genre to your space.|
Growing up in Ottawa, Teddy began his career in the entertainment industry as a child actor on the internationally syndicated series YOU CAN’T DO THAT ON TELEVISION. After earning an Honours B.A. in Political Science, the politically-active Wilson moved to Toronto to work at Queen’s Park. Political advisor by day, he started producing and promoting live comedy revues at various venues at night, including the prestigious Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award at The Second City.
After leaving politics Wilson worked his way up in TV production, eventually serving as talent booker on the Comedy Network series POPCULTURED WITH ELVIRA KURT. In 2005, Teddy joined MTV and helped launch flagship show MTV LIVE. While working as studio producer on the series his “former child star” status was often parodied during the popular “after-school special” spoofs. In 2008 Teddy left MTV to join SPACE as on-air reporter.
Teddy’s first assignment for SPACE was interviewing George Lucas at Skywalker Ranch. Since then he’s been fortunate to interview a wildly eclectic range of other personalities, including: George Clooney, Sir Anthony Hopkins, William Shatner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jeff Bridges, Leonard Nimoy, Aaron Eckhart, Kenneth Branagh, David Cronenberg, Terry Gilliam, Neil Gaiman, Jerry Bruckheimer, Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse, Gene Simmons, Pixar’s Andrew Stanton and Pete Docter, DC Comics’ Dan DiDio & Geoff Johns, Marvel Comics’ Joe Quesada, the casts of The Big Bang Theory, Stargate Universe, Sanctuary, Being Human, & many more.
In fall 2009, Teddy joined forces with Ajay Fry to co-host SPACE’s flagship daily genre entertainment show, InnerSPACE. As the voice of SPACE, each episode of InnerSPACE is locked and loaded to deliver an action-packed half-hour. Genre experts Ajay, Teddy and Cynthia Loyst go beyond the studio and into the field giving viewers front-row access to big buzz events, unparalleled behind the scenes access and coveted interviews with genre's biggest stars.
When not busy hosting INNERSPACE, Teddy plays drums in the indie-rock band HUDDLE, reads far too many comic-books and goes to a lot of movies.
