Indigenous Stories: Blackstone

Set in a fictional Indigenous community in Alberta, Blackstone is a gripping and sprawling five-season drama series which ran from 2009 to 2015. Dealing with family issues, local politics, and corruption, the series is incredibly relevant to Indigenous issues today, with plot lines relating to oil drilling, blockades, and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

Family: The Hollow

Created by Vancouver-based animation studio Slap Happy Cartoons, The Hollow is a Netflix animated series that revolves around the adventures of teens Mira, Kai, and Adam (all voiced by Canadian Actors) as they come face-to-face with mutant wolves, witches, and other mystical and mysterious creatures. 

This captivating, family-friendly two-season series is great viewing for both kids and adults who are into science fiction, mystery, and amazing animation.

Women’s Stories: Second Jen

When second-generation Asian-Canadian millennials Jen (Samantha Wan) and Mo (Amanda Joy) move out to their first apartment together in downtown Toronto, the roomies are thrust headfirst into the challenges of “adulting”, from finding a new career to make money (and afford rent) to navigating the dreaded dating scene in the big city.

Toronto natives Joy and Wan are the stars, writers, and creators of Second Jen, translating their own personal experiences into the clever banter and zany mishaps that define the three seasons of this season comedy series.

Canada is home to some of the best talent in the world. It’s due time we recognized it and tuned in!
