The Cogeco Program Development Fund 2014-2015 Annual Report is now online
Since its creation in 1992, the Cogeco Fund has invested $45 M in the Canadian television industry supporting the development and production of Canadian dramatic productions in English and in French for both public and private broadcasters.
The Cogeco Fund invests approximately $3 M a year in the production of drama series produced by Canadian independent producers for Canadian broadcasters. These series fascinate, surprise, entertain; series that make us laugh or cry; series that amuse young and old, male and female. Murdoch Mysteries, Orphan Black, 19-2, Bitten, Les pays d’en haut, Karl/Max, Salmigondis – just a few examples of content created by our best Canadian talent and supported by the Cogeco Fund in 2015.
Details on all the projects and events that have received the support of the Cogeco Program Development Fund can be found in the annual report at http://annualreport2015.cogecofund.ca.
The Cogeco Program Development Fund is the only Canadian private Fund mandated to support the development of dramatic series and digital drama series (since 2015), MOW’s and mini-series for television, and the production of series, MOW’s, mini-series and pilots for series.
The Cogeco Fund is administered by the Independent Production Fund.
