An incredible journey across Canada to discover how Aboriginal organizations, businesses, programs, and people are thriving in a modern world while holding onto their traditional values.
OTTAWA, May 5, 2020 /CNW/ - InterINDigital announced today that its new and original documentary series, CRAZY LIKE A LYNX, will have its world premiere on APTN on Friday May 8 at 7 p.m. ET (Ojibway) and Thursday June 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET (English).
Produced by InterINDigital for APTN, CRAZY LIKE A LYNX takes you behind the scenes for an intimate look at some of Canada's most successful and interesting Aboriginal organizations, businesses, programs, and people. The series follows CSA-nominated host and comedian Don Kelly, and his co-host, comedian Dakota Ray Hebert, as they travel across Canada and immerse themselves – oftentimes with self-deprecating humour – into the lives of Aboriginals who are accomplishing amazing things. From the First Nations Snowboard Team in Vancouver to the Canadian Forces Black Bear program at Gagetown and many points between, CRAZY LIKE A LYNX provides a personal tour inside some of the most progressive and successful Canadian restaurants, resorts, supermarkets, theatre companies, casinos and airlines – all of which happen to be owned and operated by Aboriginal entrepreneurs.
"It's a really wonderful documentary series that is both educational and entertaining," says Katery Legault the series producer and co-writer. Legault is also the owner of InterINDigital, a 100% Aboriginal-owned Canadian television production company. "When you challenge two comedians to immerse themselves into the day-to-day lives of strangers, the results are always entertaining, but this show delivers more than laughs. It's an opportunity for Canadians to see the incredible work that is being done across the country by Aboriginal businesses."
Legault's sentiments are echoed by Don Kelly, series co-host and a well-known name in Canadian entertainment: "This series was such a joy to make. Dakota and I met some of the most passionate, driven, and successful people and I think viewers will be fascinated to learn that many of their trusted brands all share one commonality: the Aboriginal ancestry of the visionaries at the heart of the businesses."
