Montreal, Canada, March 18, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- This series is something else. Strange enough, some might call it surrealistic. It’s positive, colorful, warm, fun, endearing and quite unique. Welcome to the cozy world of Canadian director Jean Mercier’s My Hometown. A collection of 40 stories set to please everyone in the family.
Akin to a Normand Rockwell painting, My Hometown features an outstanding cast of then young performers. Produced in association with YTV in Canada, and shown afterwards on TV Ontario and the Knowledge Network in Canada, the series was also seen in over 50 countries to date and was the incubator of great talent, some of them now among the best of Hollywood’s next generation. To name a few, Jay Baruchel (Million Dollar Baby), and Shawn Pyfrom (Desperate Housewives), Jamieson Boulanger (Eleven Summerset) and Amanda Walsh (Sons & Daughters).
The writing is funny, original, and somehow, the themes will always be evergreen. Not surprising to know, the show has been very popular with school teachers and librarians, but the kids love it too. In the world of My Hometown created by Mercier, cultural diversity lives in almost perfect harmony, the police wave hello and the life of a kid is about celebrating each other with the moment that you live in. Perhaps, the series could act as a little reminder of what life and love are truly all about, passion and compassion being delivered in each chapter with a good dose of humour.
You will watch these shows over and over again. It is like taking a walk in your favorite park. You will never get tired of it. Quite frankly, if you don’t know it yet, it is a real treasure gently waiting to enter your life.
The 8-DVD box set offers the entire collection of 40 episodes with free shipping worldwide and encoded for your zone as well. My Hometown is available exclusively at: www.MercierFilms.ca . You can also watch the promo there through a link with YouTube.
