Product Overview

This volume traces the history of Canadian involvement in America's television production industry and looks at the genres, time slots and viewing areas of the first Canadian television productions to appear on U.S. airwaves as well as the challenges that producers had to overcome to take their programming into American prime time. The book also discusses the reasons Canadian television producers have turned to a foreign market over their domestic one. The main focus is the factors which led to an independent television production sector in Toronto, Ontario, and the Ontario?based companies that have successfully competed in the U.S. marketplace. Alliance Atlantis Communications is given particular attention as one of Ontario's most successful production companies. Appendices provide a chronology of Canadian television production from 1926 to 2004 and a list of Canadian?produced programs sold to the U.S. market. A list of acronyms and abbreviations and an index are also included.
