    Theres alot of gurn here, but if you check the bit in bold down the bottom, this new series being put into major production is created by my cousin, Mark Ellis & his wife Steph. :D


    ''As for "Flashpoint," skein fits into the Eye's police drama motif.
    Skein revolves around an urban Strategic Response Unit (SRU) -- essentially a SWAT team. Cops in the unit bust gangs, defuse bombs and rescue hostages.
    CTV and Toronto-based Pink Sky Entertainment originally developed the pilot for "Flashpoint." Avmar Entertainment then came on board for the series, and the three companies are now in business with CBS Par.

    Mark Ellis and Stephanie Morgenstern created "Flashpoint,"which also stars Hugh Dillon ("Degrassi: The Next Generation") and David Paetkau ("LAX"). Exec producers include former Alliance Atlantis producer Anne Marie La Traverse and ex-CTV drama chief Bill Mustos.''
