Premieres Winter 2018 on CBC (Canada)
LITTLE DOG is the story of lightweight boxer Donny "Little Dog" Ross (Joel Thomas Hynes), and his haphazard quest for redemption. One fateful night five years ago, Donny betrayed the boxer's code of conduct during a championship bout against Rico "Havoc" St. George – he dropped his gloves in the middle of a round and quit the fight, dumping a promising career down the drain. Donny has had to live with the fallout of this decision ever since.
Now Donny has the chance for a rematch and his family isn’t sure what to think. Sure, they all loved lapping up the glory of Donny’s spotlight – but living in the shadow of his humiliating defeat was more than they could bear. If he fights again, will it bring shame or glory? Donny’s mother Sylvia, a failed lounge singer, will prove yet again to be Donny’s true nemesis in his not-quite heroic return to the ruthless world of boxing. Donny is a broken, would-be champion, trying to survive within an outrageously dysfunctional family. If the training doesn’t break him, his scheming relatives certainly will do their damnedest to finish the job.
The darkly hilarious creation of actor/novelist Joel Thomas Hynes, led by showrunner/producer Sherry White, LITTLE DOG depicts an unlikely hero – and a truly unique world – with a comic edge that's far more evocative of the Coen Brothers than anything you'll see in a Newfoundland Tourism ad.

"One of the most impressive debuts of the year." – Variety
Set in the morally grey world of assisted suicide, MARY KILLS PEOPLE is an intense, controversial, and thought-provoking drama. The series follows Dr. Mary Harris (Caroline Dhavernas), a single mother and emergency doctor by day, who also moonlights as an underground angel of death — helping terminally ill patients who want to die and slip away on their own terms. So far Mary has managed to stay under the radar; but business is booming, and her double life is getting complicated. When her world starts to unravel, Mary realizes she’s going to have to fight dirty if she’s going to stay in the killing game.
