There is no one type of program that we are looking for. Popular titles have included dramatic anthologies, mockumentaries, episodic comedies, serialized narratives, and everything in between. One thing that all of our most successful series have in common is an obsessive attention to the specific details of an underexplored world. We gravitate towards niche content that takes risks and appeals to an engaged audience -- one that is diverse, extremely discerning and that has discriminating tastes and attitudes.
To that end, we are interested in content that is, at times, irreverent to the typical expectations of the public broadcaster.
With these attributes in mind, these fundamental questions remain:
We are looking for projects that can deliver high production value without requiring the traditional budget levels associated with linear television production. We frequently work with productions in pursuing other forms of financing (Bell Fund, IPF, OMDC, Telus, et al).
Our goal is to build a library that can attract 25-40 year-old audiences - think older millennials and younger Gen X-ers.
