Greg, Anthony and Diane talk and talk and laugh and talk about the CRTC public hearings, the premieres of Package Deal, Saving Hope, The Bachelor Canada, and the Netflixization of The Trailer Park Boys, plus the battle of the Canadian streaming services.
This week’s conversation with Motive showrunner Dennis Heaton includes: reliving Motive’s first run (twice), what being a showrunner is all about, the creative process behind the camera, planning a season’s worth of episodes, how the characters are the thing, animation writing, Tarzan, Sid and Marty Krofft, and the elusive Gold Monkey.
