Some projects we're working on...
A frustrated woodworker leaves her hometown in the Maritimes to chase success in the big city, but finds only Bluebird - a failing woodshop run by a cast of misfits. Similar to the whimsical and earnest tone of Detectorists, Bluebird takes bits of dark satire, observational humour, and traditional sitcom elements, combining them into a melancholic, sincere comedy that isn’t afraid to tug at the heartstrings.
Last Calling is a female-driven buddy comedy that explores both the challenges most millennials face when they’ve delayed choosing a career path and the obstacles many women encounter in the work force. It will not only take persistence, patience, and creativity for Reilly and Sasha to land the right job but also knowing themselves and what they really want.
Generacial Gap follows the modern love story of biracial couple, Milennial Rosabelle and Gen-Xer Alex, as they deal with the challenges of bridging culture, age and race. Each webisode deals with a different “gap” that Belle and Alex face as a couple. From their 13 year age difference, to their vastly different cultural upbringing, to diverging career paths, these gaps are where the humour and heart resides.
Canada 1870: A Jamaican sugar trader, East Indian Coolie, Asian railway worker, a fleeing African American slave, meet in a chance altercation in Toronto... Together along with a First Nation’s guide, they decide to travel to the unsettled Canadian west to start new lives. They end up bringing their culture and ultimately new brand of law and order to the rough prairie landscape in a new settlement called “Greenhorn”.
Just Cuddle is a single-cam comedy centering on Winter Shaw, an adrift young woman struggling with depression, who moves back to the city and becomes a professional cuddler. Stumbling upon this industry by chance, Winter soon feels connection with her clients, and begins the process of reclaiming her life.
Alternately hilarious and poignant, Just Cuddle will tell the stories of people who are desperate for connection, and desperately trying to find it. The series will capture what happens when we allow ourselves to be seen.
Mrs. Donnelly is a six part one hour limited series exploring one woman’s quest to establish a new life in the New World that ultimately ends in the massacre of her family at the hands of her neighbours. This series will tell the story of the unlikely transformation of Johannah Donnelly from a strong-willed but unassuming Irish immigrant into the matriarch of a powerful and feared pioneer family. Johannah’s instinct for survival, and how it shaped her children, is the narrative heart of the series. This is the story of The Donnellys but told - for the first time - through the eyes of Mrs. Donnelly.
Peter n' Chris
Peter n' Chris is a genre-bending narrative-driven sketch show, based on the comedic style of three-time Canadian Comedy Award winning sketch duo Peter n' Chris.
The show centres on a ‘sketch show’ gone wrong: each week Peter and Chris earnestly try to perform their sketch show in front of a live studio audience. But every time the show about to start, something goes horribly wrong. Sending Peter and Chris into a new sketch-driven and genre-drenched adventure-of-the-week.
