eOne reups deal with Ilana Frank

'Rookie Blue' producer nabs three-year extension

TORONTO — Entertainment One has extended its first-look TV deal with Canadian producer Ilana Frank and her production company for three years, the company announced Thursday.

The first project under the renewed agreement is hospital drama series “Saving Hope,” which bows June 7 on NBC and Canada’s CTV network.

The original deal, struck in 2008, saw Frank and longtime biz partner David Wellington guide “Rookie Blue” to ratings and sales success in the U.S., Canada and abroad. The show recently wrapped its third season in Toronto.

“It is of utmost importance to us at eOne that we create an environment that is welcoming, collaborative and supportive for the producers like Ilana in Canada and worldwide,” said eOne Television CEO John Morayniss. “We remain focused on supporting our talent throughout the entire process from development through to production.”
