Temple Street Productions and Family Channel Announce the Start of Production of a New Series: Angel On Campus

Temple Street Productions and Family Channel announced today that principal photography has begun on a new youth series, Angel on Campus, and will continue production in Toronto throughout the summer.

Angel On Campus was created by Frank van Keeken (Kids in the Hall, Mad About You, Billable Hours, The Dating Guy), who also serves as an executive producer on the show.

“Angel on Campus is a very funny series with hilarious plots and some outrageous characters. We think it will really resonate with tweens and teens and get them laughing out loud,” said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, Executive Producers and Co-Presidents, Temple Street Productions.

“Family Channel is excited to be working with Temple Street Productions on this original comedy series,” said Kevin Wright, Senior Vice President, Programming, Astral Television Networks. “Angel on Campus presents a fresh concept and a unique perspective on the teenage experience that will be a great fit for our service.”

Angel on Campus is a 13-episode sitcom about a teenage odd couple – Angel-In-Training (AIT) Porter Jackson and Carl Montclaire, a high-school student plagued with bad luck. AIT Porter has been sent to Earth in order to earn his wings. But first he must complete his assignment of transforming down-on-his-luck Carl into the most popular kid at school.

The heavenly cast includes Demetrius Joyette (The Latest Buzz, Roxy Hunter and the Horrific Halloween) as Porter Jackson, and Dylan Everett (Booky’s Crush, Coopers’ Camera) as Carl Montclaire.

AUBREY “DRAKE” GRAHAM SIGNS WITH THE NIGHTINGALE COMPANY TO DEVELOP NEW COMEDY SERIES

The Nightingale Company is pleased to announce it is developing a new comedy series entitled “US & THEM” with “By Any Means Necessary Productions” featuring Degrassi: The Next Generation stars Aubrey “Drake” Graham and Mazin Elsadig.

Loosely based on real life events, “US & THEM” is a show about two buddies, played by Aubrey and Mazin, who contrast yet compliment each other. These best friends – and polar opposites – come together in this tongue-in-cheek satire of the entertainment industry and their place in it. Though they may disagree about everything, Mazin and Aubrey will always have one phrase that they both feel rings true. “It’s Us & Them.”

Aubrey Graham, fellow alumni of “Degrassi: The Next Generation”, is making a name for himself in the music industry under the stage name “Drake”. Rolling Stones Magazine hails Aubrey as, “The hottest MC in the game…whoʼs got girls, executives and rapʼs biggest names hanging on every word.” A long-time protégé of rap sensation Lil Wayne, Drake, recently signed with Lil Wayneʼs record company Young Money Entertainment.

Mazin Elsadigʼs most recent credits include a two-year starring role on Degrassi: The Next Generation and a reccurring role on The Nightingale Companyʼs cable series The Line.
