Mysteries drive survivalist series Between
Don’t try to draw comparisons between forthcoming survivalist drama Between and pop culture phenomena like Lord of the Flies or Lost. If you do, director Michael McGowan (Saint Ralph) will be quick to dismiss the suggestion. Continue reading.

Welcome Back to the Sunnyside of Life!
Original sketch-comedy series Sunnyside, created by award-winning comedy writers Gary Pearson (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Ron James Show, MADtv) and Dan Redican (The Kids in the Hall, The Jenny McCarthy Show, Puppets Who Kill), is shooting new shows. Production on seven half-hour episodes began May 14 in Winnipeg and will run until June 23, completing a full 13-episode first season to air this fall on City.
Sunnyside is co-produced by Toronto-based Counterfeit Pictures and Winnipeg-based Buffalo Gal Pictures. It stars an all-Canadian ensemble cast made up of the industry’s brightest and hottest comedic talents: Kathleen Phillips, Pat Thornton, Alice Moran, Kevin Vidal, Rob Norman and Patrice Goodman. It is set in Sunnyside – a not-so-typical fictional neighbourhood where anything can happen, and almost always does.
Anton Leo, Shane Corkery and Dan Bennett from Counterfeit Pictures and Phyllis Laing from Buffalo Gal Pictures serve as Executive Producers, Rhonda Baker from Buffalo Gal Pictures as Producer, and Paula J. Smith as Supervising Producer. For Rogers, Nataline Rodrigues is Director of Original Programming, and Hayden Mindell is Vice President of Television Programming & Content. Sunnyside is produced with the participation of Manitoba Film and Music and the Rogers Cable Network Fund.
Bahama Blue, Love Nature – “The Sand Flats”
Beyond the iconic and pristine white beaches of the Bahamas, the Sand Flats are home to fierce Iguanas, camouflaging stingrays, and the beautiful bottlenose dolphin. All of this sand is the surprising waste product produced by resident parrotfish nibbling on coral, producing one tonne of sand per fish every year. Each species relies on the surprising abundance in the sand flats both onshore and off. Green sea turtles spend most of their lives grazing on the sea grasses of the sand flats. Stingrays use incredible electro sensitivity to locate crustaceans hidden away in the sand. The creatures of the sand flats have unique skills for turning seemingly desert conditions, in to an advantage.
