Production Begins on Live-Action Comedy Greenfields


Filming has kicked off in Toronto on Greenfields, a new live-action single-camera comedy that is due to debut in Canada and the U.S. later this year.

Created by Derek Harvie, Greenfields follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy and his friends as they run a start-up company out of his parents’ garage. The 20×30-minute show is slated to begin airing on DHX Television’s Family Channel in Canada and NBCU’s Universal Kids in the U.S. this fall.

Greenfields is produced by Six Eleven Media in association with Family Channel, with participation from the Canada Media Fund (CMF). It is internationally distributed by DHX Media.

“With its original storyline, laugh-out-loud comedy and cast of colorful characters, Greenfields is the perfect fit for our premier lineup of kids’ and family content,” stated Michael Goldsmith, the VP of original production at DHX Television. “We have no doubt that today’s kids will relate to the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the series. We’re thrilled to be working alongside the creative minds of Derek Harvie and the team at Six Eleven Media on this inventive new show.”

“It’s been a privilege collaborating with our broadcast partners at Family Channel and Universal Kids on this series, and I’m looking forward to filming with our outstanding cast and crew,” added Charles Bishop, executive producer at Six Eleven Media. “This show features a group of natural-born tween entrepreneurs who aren’t afraid to try new things, put their ideas out there and prove that kids really do run the world.”
