In the news: CBC neglecting local drama

Brendan Kelly of Variety has a less enthusiastic take on the CBC schedule:

  • CBC sked neglects local dramas
    “The fall schedule for Canuck pubcaster the CBC includes more series than in recent years, but local bizzers are complaining that there aren’t many homegrown dramas. Lineup, announced Tuesday in Toronto, included only one new Canadian drama, “Heartland,” set in Alberta. There is also a returning homegrown drama series, Vancouver-based writer-producer Chris Haddock’s critically acclaimed series “Intelligence.””
