Frank Siracusa, President and CEO of Whizbang Films and John Weber President and CEO of Take 5 Productions have announced that their next project Reign has been ordered to production for a twelve episodes series to begin shooting in Toronto at the end of July. The one-hour drama adds a second series to the Whizbang/Take 5 partnership now poised to generate more than $100 million in production volumes in Canada in the upcoming year. Both Siracusa and Weber are currently at the Banff World Media Festival.

Whizbang and Take 5 began their collaboration on the first season of the series Beauty and the Beast, in spring 2012. The partnership will continue as they co-produce two projects for CBS and CW Television: the second season of Beauty and the Beast, starring Canadian Kristin Kreuk, and the aforementioned Reign. Reign, featuring Megan Follows and breakout star Adelaide Kane, tells the story of a young Mary Queen of Scots.

In addition, Take 5 is co-producing its second season of Vikings, and Whizbang will be producing the next Bruce McDonald film, Hellions, in the fall.

“Our teaming up with Take 5 Productions is proving to be an incredibly dynamic and fruitful partnership,” said Frank Siracusa, President and CEO of Whizbang Films. “It’s an exciting time for both Whizbang and Take 5.”

Added John Weber President and CEO of Take 5 Productions, “We’re extremely pleased with our upcoming productions, which also reflect the health and vibrancy of the film and TV industry here in Canada.”
