We are introduced to at least three parallel universes in "Charlie Jade" and the collective name is Multiverse. The Alphaverse, the Betaverse and the Gammaverse. Alphaverse is highly developed technologically, and is ruled by corporations. Betaverse, is our universe and Gammaverse is in comparison a version of paradise. Scientists have found a way to open a gate between them, unknown to the general population of each universe.
Charlie Jade, our hero, is from Alphaverse where he makes a living as a private eye. Although cynical and tough, he has a good life there: a beautiful girlfriend, a way to live without being at the mercy of one of the ruling corporations. A case leads him to a facility, and he witnesses some terrorists blowing it up. He realize that the explosion caused him to end up someplace else, the world he finds himself is eerily similar and yet vastly different from his own, and he needs to find his way home.
Shot on location in South-Africa and is a co-production between Canada and South-Africa, this is probably one of the most intelligent and unique science fiction shows to ever have been created.
