In the news: Durham County ‘benchmark in Canadian TV drama’

From Alex Strachan of CanWest Media:

  • Durham County proves it pays to have pay-TV
    “It’s the first series in ages – perhaps since Ken Finkleman’s At the Hotel – to aim for the kind of literate, high-minded psychological drama that has become the staple of HBO and Showtime, pay-TV channels that aren’t beholden to ratings. It’s no accident Durham County was made for The Movie Network – it’s too grim and unrelenting to appeal to a mass audience.”
