US Nets Pick-Up Canadian Shows

This is good news for Canadian producers, writers, directors and creators that we have the opportunity to have Canadian series exported to the U.S., said Stephen Waddell, national executive director of ACTRA, Canada's actors union representing about 21,000 performers. Canada is ready for the big time. If you look at the (Canadian) programs that are being produced now, they're interesting, they're innovative, they bring a new perspective.
What's more, Canadian series acquired by U.S. broadcasters are strike-proof, as evidenced by the Writers Guild of Canada's recent statement that "Flashpoint" is not a "struck work"
(from The Hollywood Reporter).
