Hit Canadian TV Series shot in Sudbury

Quote: The investments the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation have made in our growing film and television industry have helped to create a virtuous circle. By attracting productions to the North, we’ve built a talented crew base, essential infrastructure, including a full-service studio and equipment houses, and support services such as hair and make-up, carpentry and catering. These, in turn, helped lure a record number of productions to Northern Ontario in 2015.”— Patrick O’Hearn, Associate Managing Director, Cultural Industries Ontario North

In March 2016, Crave TV, together with The Comedy Network, announced it was ordering a second season of the smash hit series Letterkenny. Shot in Sudbury, it’s produced by Toronto-based New Metric Media. Why did the company choose Sudbury? “It was a no brainer,” says executive producer Mark Montefiore, whose first project in the northern city was 2012’s Cas & Dylan, a feature film starring Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss and directed by Jason Priestly. “That experience showed me that Sudbury could give us all the landscapes we needed, experienced technical and support people, and critical funding through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.”
