May The Farce Be With You

Wow! Wow! Wow! First Henshaw breaks the story that CanWest Global news may be going all naked all the time...and tonight I heard that based on the high ratings of the Future of New Media hearings in February, and specifically during the session when Shaw Communications CEO Jim Shaw went head to head with CRTC head honcho Konrad von Finckenstein, a new TV series is being rushed into production.

Billed as a TMZ-styled reality dramedy hybrid, sparks are sure to fly in the pilot, especially as Heritage Minister James Moore is rumoured to make a surprise guest appearance as the`Young Jedi'.

Looks like cpac is trying to get into the original programming game now, and personally, I can`t wait. I've often thought that the politics and bureaucracy behind the scenes of the Canadian TV industry could be as entertaining as what`s actually on our televisions.

More news as it breaks...stay tuned!
