April 10, 2015 – For the third year in a row Media Headquarters has been named to the Realscreen Global 100 list as one of the top international non-fiction companies.

Media Headquarters had a successful 2014 and emerged as an industry leader in the export of Canadian unscripted series and formats. The company’s hit prime time format Canada’s Smartest Person – the highest rated new Canadian series of the Fall 2014 season – is a growing international brand with format deals in 6 territories and counting, and a recently announced partnership with Barracuda and Electus to produce an American version. Also in 2014, MHQ created and produced the acclaimed CSA-nominated event doc series Tessa & Scott, about the celebrity figure skaters’ road to the Olympics, which was a high-rated success for W Network and has sold to National Geographic Channels international. MHQ is currently expanding its operations to take advantage of new opportunities in the unscripted export space and is committed to positioning Canada as a global player in this regard.

The annual Global 100 list is chosen by Realscreen readers, international programming execs, producers, distributors and agents.
