Degrassi: Next Class’ Sarah Glinski to head up TSC’s Writing Room Intensive

From a media release:

Ever wondered what it might be like to work in the room with a leading Canadian Showrunner? This might be the opportunity for you!

First developed in 2015, the WGC Writing Room Intensive, puts emerging to mid-career writing professionals in a mock-writing room with a leading Canadian Showrunner. We have worked with Bruce Smith (19-2), Emily Andras (WYNONNA EARP), and Kevin White and Ins Choi (KIM’S CONVENIENCE).

Through this intensive participants learn more about the inner workings of the writing room including how a Showrunner fosters creativity, breaks story, works with notes, manages conflict (where necessary), and eventually gets the script to screen.

You must be registered to attend the Toronto Screenwriting Conference, and a member of the WGC in good standing in order to apply for the program.

Call for applications are now open to registered delegates of 2018 Toronto Screenwriting Conference. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply to join Sarah Glinski, Executive Producer/Showrunner (HOLLY HOBBIE, DEGRASSI: NEXT CLASS), in a Mock Writers Room Intensive on Friday, June 22, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Holly Hobbie™ to be produced as live-action kids original series by Aircraft Pictures and American Greetings Entertainment

From a media release:

Aircraft Pictures (2018 Academy Award® and Golden Globe Award-nominated producers of the animated feature film “The Breadwinner”) in association with American Greetings Entertainment (creators and producers of “Buddy Thunderstruck” – the 2018 Emmy nominated stop-motion series) today announced they will be partnering to produce an all-new and contemporary scripted take on the venerable Holly Hobbie™ brand as a live-action kids series. “Holly Hobbie” will make its US debut in Fall 2018 exclusively on Hulu, followed by its debut in Canada on Family Channel.

In a first-of-its-kind co-commissioning structure, the series has also been pre-sold to leading US children’s cable outlet, Universal Kids, who will have the linear rights to the series after it streams on Hulu.

First introduced by American Greetings in 1967, Holly Hobbie is recognized worldwide as the bonneted “Blue Girl” in paintings and illustration, accumulating more than 50 years of fans and $1B in worldwide licensed product sales. This new 10 episode single-camera series, produced by showrunner Sarah Glinski (“Degrassi: Next Class”, “Degrassi: The Next Generation”), updates Holly as an aspirational, modern-day 13-year-old singer/songwriter. A dreamer and doer, Holly plans on saving the world someday but is happy to start in her own small town.

Beginning principal photography in May 2018, the new series is produced with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund. “Holly Hobbie” Producers are Anthony Leo and Andrew Rosen of Aircraft Pictures (“The Breadwinner”, “Bruno & Boots: This Can’t Be Happening At Macdonald Hall”) with Karen Vermeulen, Ryan Wiesbrock and Sean Gorman of American Greetings Entertainment (“Tinpo”, “Buddy Thunderstruck” and “Care Bears”) and Matthew Wexler (“D.N.Ace”, “Paw Patrol”) of Wexworks Media serving as Executive Producers alongside Sarah Glinski. In addition to Glinski, the writing team includes Courtney Jane Walker (“Degrassi: The Next Class”, “Living in Your Car”) and Cole Bastedo (“The Next Step”, “Mr. Young”).
