Work on The Beat Continues at OLN

OLN is in production on the second season of its original docu-soap series The Beat.

Ten 10, 30-minute episodes were commissioned by OLN and are produced by Montreal-based Galafilm Inc. for airing this summer.

The Beat II follows the intersecting stories of six police officers who patrol Vancouver’s roughest neighbourhood, the Downtown Eastside.

“After the success of the first season, we’re pleased to bring The Beat back with 10 new stirring episodes,” Claire Freeland, Director of Original Programming, Rogers Media Broadcasting, said in a release. “With new issues impacting the streets of Vancouver, The Beat II will convey timely and relevant storylines that will resonate with Canadian viewers.”

Galafilm founder Arnie Gelbart (18 to Life; War of 1812) serves as executive producer.  Claire Freeland is Director of Original Programming, Rogers Media Broadcasting, and Carol Commisso is Production Executive for Rogers Original Programming.

Galafilm is a board member of the CMPA (Canadian Media Producers Association) as well as of the APFTQ (Association des producteurs de film et de television du Québec).
