The CBC has ordered to pilot two more projects: Wish List from screenwriter Sean Reycraft (Degrassi, Being Erica) and Entertainment One, and a mockumentary about western Canadians top-lined by comic and actor Gavin Crawford (This Hour Has 22 Minutes).

Wish List, a road trip drama, has been shepherded through development by Entertainment One VP of creative affairs Rachel Fulford, and tells the story of Kara, a thirty-something wife and mother, who decides after losing her husband to reconnect with her daughter, her mother-in-law and herself.

The trio pile into a recreational vehicle and start their journey, only to find adventure and healing around a small town’s wishing well.

A graduate of the Canadian Film Centre, Los Angeles- and Toronto-based Reycraft is a veteran TV and stage writer.

His TV credits include Slings & Arrows, Degrassi: The Next Generation and The Eleventh Hour in Canada, and 90210 and The Vampire Diaries stateside. Reycraft is represented by literary agent Lesley Harrison at Harrison Management.

The CBC also picked up Gavin Crawford’s half-hour comedy pilot Gavin Crawford’s Wild West.

The multi-character mockumentary pokes fun at western Canadians. Crawford is represented by Kishwar Iqbal at the Gary Goddard Agency.
