The Next Generation of Content Creators
“This deal is about working with the next generation of content creators,” says Paul McGrath, Director of Digital Content at CBC.
“Put it this way, on the tenth floor of our CBC studios in Toronto there’s a hallway with pictures of some of biggest names in Canadian comedy; Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, John Candy, Michael J. Fox, Gilda Radner, Howie Mandel — they’re all up there. They’re all stars who we’ve worked with and developed shows with.
“This deal, for us, is an opportunity to make sure that that wall keeps growing, that we keep adding new faces to it.”
By collaborating with the next generation of creators, we hope to get you on that wall.
“That’s why we’re launching the Creator Network,” adds McGrath.
