PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY COMMENCES ON SERENDIPITY POINT’S NEW SERIES FOR CBC “FOUR IN THE MORNING”

TORONTO, ON April 27 , 2016 – Ari Lantos, Vice President Production,  Serendipity Point Films, announced today that principal photography for CBC original series FOUR IN THE MORNING, created by Ira Parker, is underway. The series has been ordered for eight half-hour episodes and is slated to premiere on the CBC in summer 2016.

FOUR IN THE MORNING is an unconventional comedy spiked with a touch of magical realism. The show follows four friends in their twenties as they navigate life at the unpredictable, emotional, but illuminative hour of 4 a.m.  Dealing with themes of life and death, love and heartbreak, friendship and betrayal, it’s a series about self-discovery, disappointment, and clawing after dreams that always feel out of reach.

The series stars Daniel Maslany as Bondurant, Lola Tash as Mitzi, Mazin Elsadig as William and Michelle Mylett as Jamie.

“The amount of creative license we’ve been given here is incredible,” said creator and showrunner, Ira Parker. “Sometimes I can’t believe they’re actually letting us make this show!”

“Ira Parker is a superb young writer with a truly original voice. We are delighted to be working with him and the CBC on this bold and offbeat new series,” said Ari Lantos.

Executive Producers include Ari Lantos, Ira Parker, Jeff Sagansky, Mark Musselman and Matt Geller.
