City, Netflix, and shomi(TM) Collaborate To Bring Viewers "Between," A New Premium Original Drama Series

- Series will premiere on City and shomi in Canada, and on Netflix in the rest of the world -

TORONTO (October 20, 2014) Today, City, Netflix, and shomi(TM) announced a landmark partnership to bring audiences around the world a new, premium drama series, Between - an original survivalist thriller series, created by award-winning writer/director Michael McGowan (Still Mine, One Week, Saint Ralph) and starring Jennette McCurdy (iCarly, Sam & Cat). The three-way partnership is the first of its kind in Canada for the creation of a new, original series.

The first season of Between, featuring six, one-hour episodes, will premiere on City and shomi in Canada and on Netflix outside of Canada where the service is available. Between will come to Netflix Canada one year following the initial premiere. Additional broadcast details will be announced at a later date. The series begins principal photography today.

"We know that Canadians crave daring and distinctive original programs, and Between offers just that," said Nataline Rodrigues, Director of Original Programming, Rogers. "Showcasing Michael McGowan's cinematic vision on the small screen, this compelling new series, in partnership with Netflix and shomi, delivers on our promise to offer viewers world-class entertainment."

"Teaming up with Rogers, on Between, is a tremendous opportunity to work with a creative partner in Canada to bring our global viewers top-notch content," said Erik Barmack, Vice President of Global Independent Content at Netflix. "We're thrilled to be working with outstanding talent behind the scenes including Canadians Don Carmody, Jon Cassar and Michael McGowan, and in front of the camera with a new generation of actors led by Jennette McCurdy, delivering a must watch event series that millions of Netflix viewers will enjoy."

Between is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves.

"With the commission of Between, we are reinforcing our commitment to bring the best programming to our subscribers," said Marni Shulman, Head of Content & Programming, shomi. "Great opportunities to build original content like this, and working with the breadth of talent, including the amazing Michael McGowan, is a perfect fit for the shomi brand."

"Speaking on behalf of DCTV, Mulmur Feed Co. and Elevation Pictures Corp., we are very excited to be announcing our first series production deal which is doubly historic as a Canadian first between Netflix and Rogers," said Executive Producer Don Carmody. "We have assembled an outstanding team led by Michael McGowan, as show runner who has given us a bold and riveting narrative; director John Cassar, who will bring this thriller to life; and starring the beautiful and talented Jennette McCurdy. Between is backed by three of the best content behemoths in the business"

Between stars Jennette McCurdy and was created by Michael McGowan, who executive produces along with Don Carmody (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Goon, Chicago), David Cormican (The Tall Man, Faces in the Crowd), and Naveen Prasad, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Elevation Pictures Corp. Emmy(R) award-winning director Jon Cassar (24, The Kennedys) will direct the first two episodes. The series is produced by Don Carmody Television, Mulmur Feed Co. and in association with Elevation Pictures Corp. Prasad, along with Jayme Alter (Denton's Canada) for DCTV negotiated the deal. Elevation will oversee worldwide distribution. From Rogers Media, Nataline Rodrigues is Director of Original Programming, Hayden Mindell is Vice President of Television Programming & Content, and Navaid Mansuri is Interim Vice President of Broadcast.
