Cineflix Studios | SVP
Brett spearheads the company’s scripted division, Cineflix Studios, with Peter Emerson. He also serves as an Executive Producer on the multi-award-winning SYFY/CTV Sci-Fi cult LGBTQ+ phenom Wynonna Earp; global hit series Coroner for CBC, NBCUniversal International Networks, The CW Network, and Sky Witness, which was the CBC’s highest-rated premiere in over four years and the best performing series ever on Universal TV in the UK when it launched; and the award-nominated series Pure—a gritty drama set in a world of drug-running cross-border Mennonites for WGNA, Hulu, Super Channel, and the CBC.
Brett came to Cineflix from Lionsgate’s Canadian JV Sea to Sky where he developed TV series for US and international outlets—including NBC, Fox, ABC, Hulu, RTL, TF1, and C4—and oversaw first-look deals with Kevin Costner and former ABC Entertainment Head Stephen McPherson. Prior to that, Brett led a development initiative with Take 5 (The Borgias, Vikings) and was VP of Development for CTV where he guided all creative matters for scripted drama and was instrumental in driving a period of critical and ratings successes for CTV’s original production slate with Flashpoint, The Borgias, and The Bridge.
Brett graduated cum laude from Dartmouth College where he lettered in hockey. He also holds a law degree from Dalhousie University and was a human rights lawyer in his previous life.
