"We have found a large and faithful audience around the globe, with a top-rated scripted series in Canada."

- Jocelyn Hamilton, President of eOne Entertainment


eOne Entertainment and Shaw Media are two of Canada’s largest content producers and distributors, responsible for a significant portion of original Canadian content on major broadcasters and more recently, through alternative digital distribution methods such as Netflix and Crave. Private Eyes is a Canadian comedy-drama television series inspired by the novel of the same name by G.B. Joyce, created by Tim Kilby and Shelley Eriksen starring Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson as the two protagonist private investigators solving crimes in Toronto. He tries to find himself and she believes that people don't ever change.


In 52 episodes over 4 seasons of the show, our team at Parachute has combed through hundreds of thousands of production audio clips, assessing the viability of each clip against internationally recognized broadcast standards. Each episode has a detailed ADR script generated which becomes the framework in which we book talent located around the globe for recording sessions. Our nominated team will supervise and direct ADR in person or remotely and deliver pristinely edited ADR tracks to the final mix that match or enhance the original performance of the scene. Our work included the following: 

  • Production dialogue assessment

  • ADR scripting

  • Recording session coordination

  • Directing & supervising of ADR recording

  • Editing & delivery to mix


Private Eyes is one of Canada’s and GlobalTV’s highest rated and most watched television series, with a viewership of over 1 million Canadians a week. Additionally, it is successfully syndicated internationally in dozens of countries with a reach of several million an episode.


We're always looking for new partnerships and collaborations. Let's work together!
