Rabbit Fall – Drama Series (14 x 30)

Violent crimes and unexplained events have some believing a supernatural force is at work in the remote northern town of Rabbit Fall.  Constable Tara Wheaton rejects the theory but as the bodies pile up, Rabbit Fall tears away at everything she knows to be true.  The town’s chilling history slowly unfolds and Tara comes to realize she is part of the mystery in ways she could never imagine.

Angel is very excited to announce that VisionTV and SCN have moved their project Flatearth E.R. into development this fall.  Flatearth E.R. went into VisionTV’s national call for proposals in July, and was selected out of 270 projects to begin development.

Flatearth E.R. – Dramedy Series (13 x 30)

Dr. Anika Kroeker has arrived from Cape Town, South Africa.  The good people of Flatearth are thrilled that they can finally reopen the Emergency Room that has been unstaffed for six years.  Old Doc Maguire is a little more ambivalent.  Never a surgeon, he should be happy to have some real help.  But his instinct tells him Anika is never going to fit in, and will probably move on to a big city pretty soon; his fear is that she won’t.  Doc’s comfortable existence is about to be shaken up and worse, he thinks the town might ‘put him out to pasture’.  Pride and prejudice, mixed with a healthy dose of stubbornness, is a perfect prescription for this heartfelt dramedy.

“We decided that Saskatoon was the perfect place to shoot this movie once we learned more about what this city has to offer,” said Katie Weekley, producer at Goonworks Films. “There are great crews, and locations, which made us realize that we could shoot a lower budget feature here and still make it look big city.”

The Karen Lam film features Tinsel Korey (Twilight: New Moon, Rabbit Fall), Sonja Bennett (Battlestar Galactica, Elegy), Tim Fellingham (Truly Blessed, Life on Top), and Saskatoon-native Stephen Huszar (Corner Gas, Paradise Falls). The majority of extras and crew will come from Saskatoon.

Using her new cop skills, she navigates being pursued by mobsters, falls for a thug and finds out her phony colleagues in Toronto have screwed her over royally. She learns the meaning of trust and who really has her back.

This can only make Canadian companies stronger and better able to compete for attention in an 'anytime -- anywhere' environment. Our strategic alliance with Far Vista positions us on the vanguard of this shift."
