Super Channel and CineCoup Renew Canadian Broadcast Partnership


Super Channel and CineCoup are excited to announce a repeat performance of the broadcast partnership that launched the successful 2014 premiere of WolfCop, CineCoup’s inaugural Big Deal recipient. 

Building on this momentum, Super Channel has committed to pre-license the feature film that is selected as part of CineCoup’s 2015 Big Deal. CineCoup is under one week away from announcing the 2015 Big Deal Event, held live before a packed room of industry pros at the Banff World Media Festival on June 8th

The stakes are high. 

One filmmaking team will receive $1,000,000 in production financing and a release in Cineplex theatres.  This project, one of five feature film genre concepts, will be produced and premiere on Super Channel in 2016 following the theatrical run in Canada.

“Super Channel is the ideal partner for CineCoup’s progressive, niche content,” said J. Joly, Founder and CEO of CineCoup. “The response to WolfCop’s broadcast premiere was overwhelmingly positive and we can’t wait to unleash our next original fan-driven film onto Super Channel’s enthusiastic viewers.”

“We were very pleased with the success of WolfCop and are delighted to be partnering with CineCoup again,” said Melissa Kajpust, Head of Creative Development for Super Channel. “We can’t wait to see what comes from this round and look forward to bringing the winning project to our viewers!”
