In the news: Movie channels producing Canadian dramas

Tamsen Tillson of Playback points out that Canadian drama is alive and well … on channels not many Canadians get:

  • Scripted Cancon alive and well on TMN
    “Of the series that have resulted – among them Slings & Arrows, G-Spot, Terminal City and ReGenesis – some have been more successful than others. The critics loved Slings & Arrows, which, in its third and final season, bagged three Geminis. ReGenesis airs in (count ’em) 110 countries (and is the highest-rated series on France’s ARTE, according to Marion) and recently won an International Interactive Emmy for its online version. Their latest offering, Durham County, premiered in early May to enthusiastic reviews.”
