Fergus13 x 52 Minutes Family Drama Series - CBC

FERGUS is a warm-hearted, humorous, family drama about finding where you fit. As the Dash family adapts to life as the only Hindus in a farming community, we discover a small town dealing with growing pains of its own. Problems come with less pollution, but that doesn't mean they still can't stink like... manure. As the Dashes learn, living in a small-town doesn't mean you have a small mind. In Fergus, you can let your freak flag fly.

The Cube People13 x 30 minutes - Pre-development CMF

Based on the critically acclaimed novel of the same name, THE CUBE PEOPLE is a thirty-minute dark comedy which explores the angst of white collar workers, the campy worlds of science fiction and horror, all the while sustaining the episodic carnival with a touching family narrative that is honest, funny, and relatable. Between Colin's book rejections, his baby-obsessed wife and horrible day job, Colin becomes the everyman for anyone who has been constantly beaten down and hoped for salvation.

HARD ROCK MEDICALMedical Drama 21 x 30 min - TVO, APTN

But that’s the reality when you sign up for Hard Rock U, a medical school set deep in the heart of the Canadian Shield in Northern Ontario.
