Breeder of the Pack

Breeder of the Pack

What profession requires show business acumen, a knack for genetic manipulation, the honed instincts of a seasoned corporate raider and hairdressing skills? Welcome to the world of dog breeders.
 
BREEDER OF THE PACK, a 13 x 30 documentary series follows the stories of interesting and opinionated people who populate the dog world, and the passionate lengths they go to propagate and defend their desirable pooches.
 
Offbeat and endearing, each episode of this stylish series focuses on one breeder and their canine of choice. From “leasing a bitch”, to posing for paparazzi, we follow these devoted dog lovers on their quest to conquer the show competition, protect critically sick pups, or go toe to toe with a life-long foe.

The Chef's Domain

The Chef's Domain

 
A visual and culinary delight, each episode of The Chef’s Domain follows a chef's odyssey as they search for the local ingredients needed for the ultimate field to table feast.
 
Every great chef dreams of sourcing their ingredients just outside their back door. But in this country, depending on the time of year, they can have their work cut out for them.
 
In this 18 part series, our acclaimed chefs from across the country are up for the challenge. With the clock ticking, they must race to find the freshest possible ingredients available while grappling with short growing seasons, torrential rains, hurricanes and early snowfalls. For them, the Canadian climate and landscape are equal parts challenge and inspiration. These chefs have to improvise based on what they have found (or couldn't find) and then create a memorable and inventive locally based dinner. The Chef’s Domain celebrates the beauty and bounty of Canada through the culinary talents of its chefs.

I Didn't Do It

I DIDN'T DO IT is a 7 x 60 series that exposes the untold story, and the personal toll exacted, of wrongful convictions, one gut-wrenchig case at a time. For the first time, series television devotes itself to the dark side of a system that imprisons thousands of innocent people.

They are stories of innocent people caught in a nightmare and who must, after their exoneration, try to pick up the shreds of their life after spending years in prison. And throughout each episode, the desperate search is on for the real perpetrator behind the crime.
