  • Jack Layton biopic ordered by CBC
    Thursday June 14th 2012

    CBC has commissioned biopics of hockey hero Gordie Howe and the late NDP leader Jack Layton for future seasons. The public broadcaster announced Wednesday that it has commissioned three new films after meeting with writers and producers at the Banff World Media Festival. The third film is a crime story, based on the best-seller Still Life by award-winning Quebec novelist Louise Penny. “Each one of these stories is a uniquely Canadian story that celebrates and reflects our rich culture,” Tom Hastings, CBC’s head of scripted drama, said in a statement released Wednesday.

  • Stanley Cup final’s television ratings down 29 per cent from last year
    Thursday June 14th 2012

    NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Stanley Cup finals’ television ratings were down 29 per cent from last year. The Los Angeles Kings’ victory over the New Jersey Devils in six games averaged a 2.2 rating and 4 share on NBC. The 2011 series between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks,[…]

  • Television pilot production ditches L.A.: Report says more than half of fall pilots shooting outside of region
    Thursday June 14th 2012

    Los Angeles is seeing a continued migration of primetime dramas to other locations as more lucrative government incentives lure producers outside Hollywood. That’s the conclusion of FilmL.A.’s annual Television Pilot Production report which projected that the major broadcast networks’ 2012-13 fall viewing season will be exposed to 47 Los Angeles-based shows (18 dramas, 29 comedies) and 24 shows (23 dramas and a single comedy) filmed outside Hollwyood. It’s the first time in the history of the study, which dates back to 2004, that less than half of the primetime dramas have been shot in Los Angeles.

  • THE BRIEF: Casting has gone to the dogs
    Wednesday June 13th 2012

    The Brief was curious about the status of commercial work for actors today. We all know production cools during the summer, but looking retrospectively at the year 2012, it appears many of the commercial acting jobs were going to different species. Say pigs, sheep, geckos, bulldogs, chimps, cows, hippos – why even meerkats and macaws have more calls than actors.

  • Four Reasons Why Apple Could Revolutionize Television
    Tuesday June 12th 2012

    Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference began yesterday. Investors and analysts look to the conference for tidbits regarding developers’ toolkits, which foreshadows product introductions six to twelve months out.  Remember, Apple develops superb software and then makes compelling hardware to showcase it.  Much has been written on anticipated features of an expected iOS6, updated MacProBook, Facebook integration, enhanced Mountain Lion compatibility with mobile, ousting of Google Maps and possibly introducing Siri on the iPad. Should these come to pass, these features will all serve to enhance Apple’s current product line-up and delightful user experience.  However, the greater impact to Apple’s long-term road map will be any indication that Apple will be providing the software heads-up for a television-like device expected in 2013. A television-like device would serve as the next step-function up in Apple’s growth trajectory, and a catalyst for the next 5-7 year product cycle. Here are four reasons why Apple could revolutionize “television.”
