Yes this is readily available here but this is not really what the local production in Quebec consists of.

Nor are these generally the top-rated shows here.

Did anyone mention You Can't Do that on Television and Degrassi? They are two shows to receive wide popularity outside Canada. Degrassi is still going strong.

There's a show called "Les Bleus de Ramville" that follows a fictional fan club of a minor-league hockey team in a French-speaking town in Ontario. The team being called "Les Radiateurs Dufresne." A lot of it is an interpersonal drama that would be familiar on any show, but the details - the local ice hockey "scene," the small-town Canada setting, and so on - is fairly distinctive. I'm not sure if it's dubbed or subtitled for the English-speaking market, but it's an interesting show.

That one isn't dubbed into English, for sure, or I would have remembered the concept.

Small town hockey club, and the fans that follow it.... Interesting idea for a TV show.

First off, I’m new here, so hi everyone.

I can’t believe no one’s mentioned SCTV. For modern TV, you really can’t beat kids in the hall, IMO.

How about a hockey drama that was shot in both English and French?

And there were plenty of in-jokes that only Canadians would get from SCTV. Floyd Robinson (Lloyd Robertson of CTV) and Earl Camambert (Earl Cameron of CBC); the Reach for the Top parody (hosted by "Alex Trebel," when Alex Trebek did indeed host the quiz show in the 1960s); and the "Fishin' Musician," which was a parody of the Red Fisher Show; were priceless. Americans would not have understood any of this, but Canadians were rolling in the aisles.

Maybe some Quebecois show?

Many Canadian TV shows could easily be shot in the US...and a lot of US shows (at least until recently) were shot in Canada, due to financial considerations. E.g. Degrassi High.

Degrassi is not an American show.
