From a media release:
CHCH and Motion Content Group today announce a partnership to invest in the creation of original high-quality Canadian programming with international appeal.
The drama development partnership will see CHCH and Motion Content Group jointly select projects to be developed, produced and distributed worldwide. Together, the companies will work directly with writers as well as third-party producers to secure premium returnable series.
The creative sensibilities and domestic relationships of CHCH, together with Motion Content Groupâ€™s global relationships and interest in supporting quality content creation will allow the companies to build international co-productions speeding up the process to get original series from development to air.
The initiative is being led by Jennifer Chen, Vice President of Programming for CHCH, and Tony Moulsdale, Global Director of Programming for Motion Content Group.
â€œMotion is committed to developing new funding models which bring premium content to the international market and which support our broadcast partnerâ€™s programming ambitions,â€ said Tony Moulsdale. â€œThis deal builds on the success of our previous deals with CHCH on THE PINKERTONS and WYNONNA EARP.”
â€œThis collaboration will unlock great opportunities for Canadian content-creators, and weâ€™re looking to work with new talent as well as world-leading established writers,â€ added Jennifer Chen.
