Order of Canada recipient and Degrassi television franchise producer Linda Schuyler's DEGRASSI MATRIARCH has sold to ECW Press.
Shown in over 160 countries, Degrassi is known as the show that "goes there," pushing boundaries and opening up conversations as it reassured kids everywhere: "You are not alone." DEGRASSI MATRIARCH will chronicle Schuyler's nearly four-decade adventure producing the Degrassi television shows.
"I love stories of underdogs and pioneers and this is a true story of both,” said TRF agent and CEO, Sam Hiyate. “As Linda evolves from being a teacher to filmmaker and casting age-appropriately -- in an age when no one else did -- and tackling difficult and yet urgent topics in the shows, you can't help but love her, and cheer her on for her courage and resilience."
Told with unflinching, light-hearted and personal revelations and anecdotes about: Drake (back when he was Aubrey Graham), Chaz Bono, Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, and even a hobbit -- to name a few, and creating "the world's longest anti-bullying campaign.”
