    HALIFAX, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - DHX Media Ltd. (AIM & TSX ticker: "DHX"), a
leading independent international producer and distributor of television
programming and interactive content, announced today the start of production
on THE GUARD, a joint production with Vancouver-based Brightlight Pictures and
DHX Media's Halifax Film. The 13, one hour, episode primetime drama series was
commisioned by Global Television and is slated to air in Canada in early 2008.
    Charles Bishop, President of DHX Media's Halifax Film unit commented,
"With the coast guard as backdrop, viewers will be drawn to our four rescue
specialists who ultimately neglect themselves to save others. These story
lines will have an international appeal and will be a positive, diversifying
addition to our growing library of programming."
    "THE GUARD is an innovative and intense series that we know Canadians
will embrace," said Christine Shipton, Vice President of Original Programming
for Global Television. "Through his dynamic writing, Raymond Storey has
created a cast of compelling characters deftly brought to life by a wonderful
cast, and we look forward to bringing this terrific original production to our
audiences in the new year."

    About THE GUARD

    THE GUARD is a character-driven ensemble drama delving into the lives of
four members of a Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue team serving in the
Pacific Northwest - where the Pacific Ocean collides with Canada's mountainous
coastline in one of the most beautiful and treacherous locations on earth. The
series explores the stories of these four imperfect, offbeat and sometimes
difficult heroes whose greatest search may be for meaning in their own lives.
