Fall Canadian Creative Accelerator Comedy TV

Deadline: June 23, 2024

The Canadian Creative Accelerator is organized by the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) at the Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles.

The 2024 program will kick off in September 2024 with curated workshops, in person meetings, and 1:1 mentorship across 2 months. The program will include two in-person weeks in Los Angeles.

This year’s program will focus on production companies with scripted live-action comedy television programs that have an attached Canadian broadcasting partner. Applicants should be established Canadian production companies with a varied slate of projects in the scripted format. A current project will be the main reference for selection. A jury of LA based industry professionals will select 5 companies whose lead project has the most likelihood for success in the US market.

The lead project needs to be a comedy based program.

Throughout this two month period, participants will have a unique opportunity to gain access to influential television producers, financiers, distributors and management companies in the US. Participants will take part in conversations with industry experts, networking events and one-on-one meetings. Only those who can commit to the full scope of the program should apply. All programming for this upcoming cohort will be in English.
