The Ontario government  has invested $2,250,000 towards filming two seasons of a Francophone comedy in Greater Sudbury. 

Ramville is a comedy about a hockey fan club in a small, fictitious mill town. The project will employ four lead actors, 10 secondary actors, and is also expected to create about 25 technical and production jobs.

It will be produced with support from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, and partnership from la télévision francophone en Ontario (TFO), Les Productions R. Charbonneau and Carte Blanche Films Inc.

“The creation of a drama series that truly reflects the reality of the Ontario francophone communities is an objective that is crucial for TFO,” Gisèle Chrétien, chair of the Ontario French Language Educational Communications Authority stated.

Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci made the funding announcement on May 25, according to a press release.

Our government recognizes the important role Sudbury and the North plays to the provincial economy and therefore is continually investing in new and exciting projects such as this one,” Bartolucci stated in the press release.
