Toronto-based Tricon Films & Television has announced new acquisitions including two documentaries, Where’s My Goat? and Cranky, the scripted comedy series The Smart Woman Survival Guide and a new docu-series, ‘Hick’ Town.
Henge Productions’ Where’s My Goat? is a 60-minute doc dealing with issues surrounding charity and ethical gift giving. Cranky, also from Henge, follows three teams taking part in the Great Fogo Island Punt Race. The other new non-fiction acquisition, ‘Hick’ Town (6 x 30-minutes, HD) follows John Hickenlooper, mayor of Denver, Colorado, and provides a fly-on-the-wall look at the governance of one of America’s biggest cities.
