Shaftesbury goes to Gillers again for Cancon

Briefs | 12/05/2007 2:02 pm EST

Shaftesbury Films has acquired the rights to Elizabeth Hay's Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel Late Nights on Air, which they will develop into a television series. "We knew after reading Late Nights on Air, long before the Giller Awards were announced, that this book was a winner," said Christina Jennings, chairman, Shaftesbury Films. "Elizabeth's compelling story, set in a local radio station in the far north, and populated with a rich cast of characters, will provide viewers with a unique television experience." Producer of the popular series ReGenesis, Shaftesbury last year acquired the rights to 2006 Giller winner Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures by Vincent Lam, which is currently being developed into a limited series for the Movie Network and Movie Central.
