Playback names Insight the TV Producer of the Year!

Playback’s Winter 2014 print issue is honouring Insight the TV Producer of the Year & honours The Amazing Race Canada as the Network TV Show of the Year. The Amazing Race Canada pulled in an average audience of 3.5 million on CTV this summer, outperforming the U.S. version’s current season and making it the most-watched Canadian series on record.

playbackInsight attributes its success to its bench strength in producers and other talent. Its full-time staff numbers 28, but Brunton estimates in June the prodco was employing 500-600. “John and I strive to make it fun, and we all act as a team and everybody respects each other. It brings back staff show after show,” Bowlby says.

Brunton adds: “I think we have a great touch when it comes to working with talent – from editors to on-air hosts, rock stars, temperamental directors and writers. Insight is a great place for creative people in that they are welcomed and honoured here.”
