Farpoint to produce 150 hours of scripted and unscripted television
EDMONTON (January 17, 2023)– Farpoint Films and Super Channel announced
today they have signed an exclusive deal which will see Farpoint produce 150 hours of both
unscripted and scripted television for Super Channel over the next year, with an option to
extend for two more years at 150 hours per year.
The first show already in production is Death of the Party (26x60), a true crime doc series
that takes a look at mysterious murders linked to house parties, banquets, concerts,
festivals and events. The second show is another unscripted true crime series called, An
Hour to Kill, which micro-examines the most fascinating uninterrupted hour of a homicide
investigation. Farpoint is then planning on rolling on three movies this summer with another
collection of documentaries and unscripted series shooting simultaneously around the world
utilizing their in-house production and post crew.
All shows will be developed and produced in-house at Farpoint Films with Farpoint
Distribution taking the majority of them out to market starting at Realscreen 2023.
“I’m excited to take our work with Super Channel to the next level, continuing to create
quality programming for their viewers while building Farpoint Distribution’s catalogue,” said
Farpoint Films president, Kyle Bornais. “Our shows sell far and wide internationally, but it’s
nice to know it all starts at home in Canada. It just makes sense.”
“We are excited to expand on our relationship with Kyle and his team at Farpoint Films” said
Don McDonald, President and CEO, Super Channel. “They have been a great partner,
consistently providing entertaining and intriguing high-quality content that has become a
staple of our schedule".
