From a media release:

Mosaic Entertainment making waves across Canada

  • Edmonton producer of CAUTION: May Contain Nuts is one of five selected for the prestigious the NSI Totally Television Program and one of three to pitch at Just For Laughs “Pitch ’til your sides split” competition.

Mosaic Entertainment will be spending some quality time in Montreal and Toronto in the coming months as development for this up and coming company kicks into high gear.

The good news on the development front keeps coming as the Mosaic Entertainment project Nerdvana written by Tony Binns, is one of five that’s been selected for the vaunted NSI Totally Television Program.

Totally Television, a TV series development training program, connects teams with showrunners and story editors such as Tassie Cameron (Rookie Blue), Vera Santa Maria (producer on Parks and Recreation) and David Barlow (King, The Border), executives from all major Canadian networks, and executive producers from companies like Shaftesbury, Temple Street, Breakthrough and Omni. Recent shows developed through NSI Totally Television include Less Than Kind (season 3 to air on HBO Canada), Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil (airing on SPACE and Comedy Network in Canada and Fear Net in the US, season 2 in production). Mosaic Entertainment would like to extend a special thanks to the CanWest Legacy Fund for their support of Nerdvana which enabled us to take this new exciting step in the development of this promising project.

Mosaic was also recently selected as just one of three contestants to pitch a new comedy webseries at the Just For Laughs “Pitch ’til your sides split” in Montreal. Jeff The Chosen One creators and writers Matt Alden and Paul Foxcroft will likely leave a lasting impression during what will be a supercharged and hilarious pitch, in front of a panel of distinguished judges and a roomful of comedy industry players. Jeff the Chosen One is a fantasy situation comedy about magic, destiny and idiots. It’s Lord of the Rings meets The Office. The “Pitch ’til your sides split” program is a Just for Laughs initiative that puts content creators in front of leading comedy industry executives with a chance to win development funding and mentorship for their project.
