Original Programming Submissions

The drama team commissions one-hour dramas and half-hour comedies aimed at adults 25-54 for Global and Showcase. We're looking for edgy, challenging and dramatic one-hour concepts with strong narratives and an episodic motor for both our conventional and specialty channels, with the edgier and more provocative "cable" concepts for our specialty channel Showcase. Shows that do well for us include Rookie Blue, Haven, XIII, Lost Girl and King.

On the half-hour front we're looking for half-hour comedies that fit well with the current Showcase schedule and are able to sustain audiences week after week. Episodic comedies that encourage co-viewing are ideal.

Global also commissions hour-long documentary series and formatted reality programming for adults 25-54.
