Canadian pay TV network Super Channel has picked up Australian dramedy series Upright from transatlantic producer and distributor Entertainment One (eOne).

The series is produced by Lingo Picture’s Jason Stephens and executive produced by Minchin.

Upright is set to air in Canada on pay TV network Super Channel Fuse on January 19.

Noel Hedges, eOne’s executive VP of acquisitions, International Distribution, said: “Upright is an emotional, hilarious and unique series that we are proud to bring to Canadian audiences with our partners at Super Channel. Tim Minchin has created a layered and complex series that is finding critical and audience acclaim worldwide.”
