  • Breakthrough for Canadian outfit
    Wednesday February 25th 2009

    Canada’s Breakthrough Entertainment has licensed several series to buyers in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia. Twenty-six half-hour episodes of “Plastic Makes Perfect” have been acquired by Fine Living Television in the U.S., Coign Media in South Korea, and broadcasters in Norway, Denmark and Finland. Season two will air on[…]

  • Fox moves ‘Fringe’ to Vancouver
    Wednesday February 25th 2009

    After spending weeks on tenterhooks over the status of New York’s endangered production tax credit, Warner Bros. TV has decided to pull up stakes and relocate production of its hit Fox series “Fringe” to Vancouver. The show, which reportedly spent $4 million an episode in recession-pummeled New York, originally relocated from Toronto to Long Island’s Silvercup Studios specifically to take advantage of the Empire State’s much-publicized incentives. It applied too late, unfortunately.

  • ‘Benjamin Button’ is VFX’s Holy Grail
    Tuesday February 24th 2009

    Taking home the Oscar for visual effects, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” has set a new benchmark in the VFX community. A believable synthetic human had long been considered the industry’s Holy Grail, and the most recent developments in that area allowed lead actor Brad Pitt to, convincingly, age in reverse. The win also delivered lead VFX facility Digital Domain its first VFX Academy Award in a decade as well as its first since Michael Bay and Wyncrest Holdings acquired the privately-owned company in 2006.

  • Fox Searchlight grabs the Oscar spotlight
    Tuesday February 24th 2009

    Fox Searchlight owned the stage at the Kodak Theatre on Sunday, winning eight Oscars, more than any other studio, mini-major or specialty division. It culminated a remarkable six months whose outcome would have been impossible to predict at the start of this unpredictable awards season. With few acquisitions or productions on its 2008 slate, the Peter Rice-run company didn’t look as if it was in a position to repeat its Academy Awards feats of the past two years.

  • Canada’s Rogers in league with Leno
    Tuesday February 24th 2009

    Canadian broadcaster Rogers Media has taken a risky, though potentially lucrative, leap into primetime by acquiring NBC Universal’s Jay Leno primetime talk show for its Citytv-branded TV stations beginning in the fall. Leno’s new series will air at 10 p.m. weeknights on Citytv’s free, over-the-air stations in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg, while “The Tonight Show” with new host Conan O’Brien will remain on the rival A-Channel stations run by CTVglobemedia at 11:35 p.m.
