Wrongful convictions and grade school students training for the Boston Marathon are the subjects of two recent commissions from Toronto-based Lively Media.
CBC Television’s Factual Entertainment Unit has commissioned Lively Media to produce run run revolution, a two-part one-hour documentary series following 10 unfit grade seven and eight students in Ottawa as they train for the youth section of the Boston Marathon. The series is part of CBC’s Live Right Now initiative which rolled out this January.
The Accused (w/t) is a one-hour pilot for Investigation Discovery U.S. and Canada, which shows the stories behind two wrongful conviction cases.
Lively president and EP Leanna Crouch (pictured) says in a statement that the projects are “provocative, engaging and intense.”
