InnerSpace was a daily Canadian television talk show devoted to genre news in science fiction which served as the flagship program of Space. InnerSpace aired each weekday at 7 p.m. ET and covered film, television, video games, technology, comic books, gadgets, and all news related to the sci-fi genre. Its hosts were Ajay Fry, Morgan Hoffman and Teddy Wilson. The show was cancelled on May 24, 2018 due to financial pressure.[1]

History[edit]

InnerSpace began as HypaSpace in 2002. In 2008, it became The Circuit and brought Ajay Fry on to host. In 2009, re-titled InnerSpace, Teddy Wilson joined as co-host.[2] Two years later, Cynthia Loyst joined the team, before leaving to join The Social. Morgan Hoffman joined the show shortly thereafter.

Prior to 2007, Space aired a daily news segment called SpaceNews. Videographer Natasha Eloi looked at "what's new" in space and the sciences. SpaceNews Monthly was a best-of show based on these interstitials. Both programs finished their runs at the end of September and October 2005, respectively.
