  • CW network is chock-a-block with Canuck content
    Thursday August 02nd 2012

    The U.S. broadcaster is introducing three new dramas this fall. All three are shot in Canada, and two of the three are headlined by young Canadians. Arrow stars Toronto-born Stephen Amell. The comic book-inspired action series is based in Vancouver. Beauty and the Beast, a remake of the late ‘80s romance series, stars Vancouver-born Kristin Kreuk. It’s shot in Toronto. Emily Owens, M.D., the tale of a young doctor who finds a hospital can be just like high school, features not a Canadian but Mamie Gummer, the look-a-like daughter of Meryl Streep. The series is shot in Vancouver.

  • TIFF announces 2012 docs, Midnight Madness, kids lineup
    Thursday August 02nd 2012

    Docs ‘n’ shocks were front and centre as the Toronto International Film Festival unveiled its documentary and Midnight Madness line-ups. TIFF also rolled out program announcements involving mind trips, moppets, masterpieces and Mumbai, all part of the 37th annual festival running Sept. 6-16. TIFF Docs is the new handle for the popular Real to Reel program. This year it presents new works by Ken Burns, Alex Gibney and Julien Temple, as well as exposes about the Olympics, the Roman Catholic Church, the Middle East and entertainment figures ranging from Garth Drabinsky to Roman Polanski to Snoop Dogg.

    A few thoughts about NBC’s Olympics strategy — and the operatic freak-outs about NBC’s Olympics strategy: It’s been perverse fun watching ad-supported, for-profit media outlets freak the hell out because of the business decisions made by ad-supported, for-profit NBC. For instance, consider this post from Mashable on Saturday: “Please Don’t Watch NBC Tonight. Or Any Night.” The gist of the screed: “If you’re cool with watching tape delays, having commercials during soccer games and more, then by all means watch NBC tonight and give them good ratings. But if people really want this to change, especially for future Olympics, World Cups and more, then you need to not watch. Scour the internet for bootleg streams, most of which are live; or if you must watch the games tonight, go to a bar where the games will already be on. Don’t contribute to the ratings.”
