TORONTO — Global Television and Insight Production Co. will develop a new coming of age series for 10- to 14-year-old boys called “Hockey Boys.”

Set in the high pressure world of minor league hockey, the characters include one American troublemaker who delights in taunting his Canuck teammates about the decline of the game. Global’s Loren Mawhinney said the producers are hopeful “Hockey Boys” will follow in the footsteps of the successful series “Ready or Not,” a Global Insight Disney co-production for girls. The 13 half-hour episodes are slated for production next year.
