In the news: CTV merger sparks call for more Canadian drama

From John Doyle of the Globe and Mail:

  • When Canadians watch TV, they want drama
    “When most Canadians watch TV, drama is what they want to watch, and the majority of the most-watched programs in Canada each week are dramas. But we’re not making any.”

And a reaction from Denis McGrath of Dead Things on Sticks, with a list of Canadian dramas currently in development:

  • Canadians Want Drama
    “So is the CRTC going to extract from CTV the first plank in a new drama committment? That’s what Doyle seems to be calling for. That would be great.”
