In the news: More drama, not celebrities

From John Doyle of the Globe and Mail:

  • We need more hit Canadian drama, not more E! channels
    One thing that needs to happen is this – the creation of a hit one-hour drama on CBC, CTV or Global that pulls in close to a million viewers a week. We need another Due South or Street Legal, a show that has a mass appeal and a million viewers. Without that, Canadian-made TV will always be perceived as in the weaker position, looking inept. The last thing the Canadian TV networks and the watching Canadian audience need is more air-headed coverage of American celebrities.
