Inspired by utterly fictional events, Space Riders: Division Earth is the story of two out-of-shape nobodies who accidentally become Earth’s heroes. Ken and Philip are roommates without direction. But when a case of mistaken identity throws them into the path of intergalactic supervillain Orson Ooze, they must fight to save themselves – and the planet.

SPACE RIDERS SPOTLIGHT: HANNAH PULLEY!
If you’ve watched Space Riders: Division Earth, you’ve noticed the costumes and how good they are. That is all because of the amazing Hanna Puley. She has a boundless imagination, incredible resourcefulness, and a super-high standard of quality. Achieving just the right mixture of campiness and awesomeness (some would say they go hand-in-hand) was Hanna’s biggest challenge, given the budget, and also the tone of the show. But time after time she would bring great ideas and directions for the characters, while still achieving what the creators were looking for (and beyond!). Hanna came on to the project at the very beginning, making the original suits for the teaser trailer, and some of those design elements carried through to the main show. Hanna is quickly becoming a sought-after collaborator, and we’re so happy she could be involved in Space Riders.
We would be remiss not to mention the other wardrobe contributors on the show. David Scott, FX master, made the Moon Monster mask. And in the very last scene of the show, we see some of The Council of the Dark. These costumes were made entirely by Roxanne Ignatius. Shooting the scene at all was a last-minute decision, and by that point, Hanna’s resources and budget had been completely exhausted, so Mark and Dan asked Roxanne if she’d be interested in making 8 new costumes. Roxanne had made the original Moon Monster mask in the teaser trailer, so they were familiar with her skills. And she came through brilliantly. Roxanne and David, we’re so grateful you were involved.
