Wildwoods (Vie de chantier)

Sphere Media
16 x 60 min

200 miles north of the closest town in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region (Quebec, Canada), a group of men and women go head to head with the brutal elements of remote Quebec forests, their livelihoods - and lives - constantly on the line. Shot entirely on site, WILDWOODS (VIE DE CHANTIER) is an authentic, character driven doc series that spans the grueling ten-month season of remote Quebec loggers.

The stakes are high. The personalities are big. The conditions are harsh. The machines are behemoth - and the cameras are always rolling. Immersive action and drama steer this procedural 16-part series. Unlike the classic “talk and stock doc”, WILDWOODS captures the real-life highs and lows of the job and the up close and personal stories of the people who do it.

Episodes are arranged thematically and are self-contained meaning viewers can always tune in to a compelling and complete hour.

This series was in the top 3 most watched doc series on Canal D while season 1 have also been broadcasted on RMC Discovery channel, in France.
