The New Zealand-set family thriller Mystic, based on the best-selling author Stacy Gregg’s Pony Club Secrets book series, is to premiere on Super Channel Heart & Home.
Shot on location in New Zealand, the series is set in the fictional peninsula of Kauri Point and follows new-to-town teenager Issie Brown, who struggles to fit in after moving from London to the quiet, backwater town with her mother Amanda, as she uncovers a series of secrets surrounding a mysterious injured horse and a threat to the local environment.
The 13×30-minute family drama is Super Channel Heart & Home original in association with the BBC. It will debut in Canada on May 16 at 8 p.m. Each half-hour episode will also be available on Super Channel On Demand, the day following its weekly linear broadcast.
“Mystic is a great family co-viewing experience that we are excited to be bringing to our Heart & Home channel,” said Jackie Pardy, chief content officer at Super Channel. “We are certain fans of When Calls the Heart and Heartland are going to embrace the series and its themes of family, friendship, self-discovery and environmentalism. Packed with action, adventure, humor and intrigue, Mystic will not only appeal to horse-mad teens or fans of the book series but the whole family.”
