Open question to all,
I am a major TV and film watcher from the US that has a masters in Film and TV Theory, but very little international experience. I have visited Canada twice, but went skiing and watched very little TV while there. I was wondering (for those of you who may know) what are the major differences between TV in Canada and the USA? And how big is the entertainment industry in Canada? In America we follow celebs like they are endangered species, we read tabloids and articles on everything they do no matter how small. Occasionally, we get some news about Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss or someone in Britain that does something illegal or crazy. But I never hear anything about Canadian stars or their daily life. Now I know that Jim Carrey, Sharon Stone, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morisette and many "American" actors are from Canada, but for all intensive purposes they are famous in America and that's why we cover them. I used to watch a lot of "Kids in the Hall" and loved that show. And I know Toronto has a major budding film industry. But are there any Canadian stars that are huge there that we don't cover? And what is the industry like over there? Answer any, all, or whatever questions you think I may want to know along these lines. I am just interested in what film and TV is like up there? How many Canadian movies get major releases in America? Thanks for your time and consideration.
