Here is the Stream show synopsis:-
Stream hauntingly chronicles the struggles of a woman who spends her lifetime wrestling with her personal demons and trying to gather the strength to face her first fears. Whoopi Goldberg is Jodi Quinn. Thanks to a drug she took when she was seventeen, moments from various points in Jodi's life become intertwined, effectively letting her experience two moments at once. Jodi has spoken with her future husband; she's visited the psychiatric ward where she will reside in her twenties, and she has come face to face with a vision that will haunt her throughout her life.

Previously Goldberg has dipped her toe in the scifi world appearing in Star Trek The Next Generation.
About Fearnet:-The website FEARnet was launched in 2006 and has a comprehensive horror library bringing together content from the top film studios producing horror movies, Sony Pictures Television, Lionsgate and Comcast. FEARnet also has a branded Internet TV channel on Veoh featuring a selection of popular titles like 30 Days of Night: Blood Trails, Devil's Trade and Buried Alive. The site also has interviews, news and coverage from top horror conventions.

If you have not already noticed, watching television is declining worldwide. And because less people are watching the TV, there's less advertising revenue to go around. This then has a knock on effect and there's less money to spend on making TV shows.
So why is the demise of TV happening so fast? TV is simply old and boring technology. It can not compete with the multi tasking, interactive internet tv and set top recorders. The only people still sticking with traditional TV old folks and babies, because these are the only groups that dont surf the net.

TV networks are slowly reacting to the challenge by putting their content online. However the only really standout site is the BBC's TV website. Other networks are putting content on a website to view as catch up tv, but where is the innovation? Why cant we watch any tv show or movie by just pushing a button? Although the technology is there to do this and it would bring in much needed revenue, the industry is reluctant to change and adapt to this new age.
There is so much potential to have interactive tv shows and bring the viewer into the action, but we still have networks looking to put their content on game consoles! Really innovative guys
Someone or organisation have to drag the TV industry into the computer age. Adapt or die, if not the industry will become like the dinosaurs that they have become.
