NSI Totally Television-developed Wolfville optioned by Take the Shot Productions

TV series project Wolfville, developed through NSI Totally Television in 2017-18 by writer Jon Mann and producer Rob Ramsay, has been optioned by St. John’s, Newfoundland-based production company Take the Shot Productions.

When a large shipment of drugs appear in the Wolfville harbour, two best friends – a drug dealer and a cop – are forced to investigate, deceive and betray each other. Wolfville is a story about loyalty and brotherhood, told with the charm of small town livin’.

The deal between the Wolfville team and Take the Shot is a direct result of the sessions and meetings during phase two boot camp training.
