Production begins on the life of Olympic swimmer Victor Davis

TORONTO (CP) _ Production has started on a TV movie about the life of Olympic gold medallist Victor Davis.

Victor, which will be broadcast on CBC in March 2007, started shooting Monday in Toronto. It’s scheduled to wrap up Sept. 18.

Mark Lutz wrote the script and is also playing the swimmer, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Montreal in 1989 at the age of 25.

Lutz, a former competitive swimmer, began researching the project several years ago.
