CALEDONIA is a supernatural web series based in Glasgow, Scotland.
When newly-divorced police officer Leah Bishop is offered a transfer to Glasgow, she jumps at the chance. She is soon to discover that fairytales are real - and her fellow officers are monsters.
CALEDONIA is the marriage of romantic Scottish imagery with the raw everyday reality of Glasgow. This programme was created because of the lack of diversity in fantasy and sci-fi shows. The characters in CALEDONIA represent various races, religions, classes, and sexualities, as a more realistic reflection of the world we live in, particularly in Scotland's city of culture.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Her current specialities are Scottish and American highway mythology with a focus on monsters and ghosts. Amy has a history of weightlifting and streetfighting, bellydancing and world travel.
