Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci is to announced “substantial” funding for a TVO television series next week.

The press conference will be held at the Sudbury campus of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) on Ramsey Lake Road on Feb. 19.

The announcement does not say which TVO series is receiving the funds.

TVO unveiled its first ever drama series last year with “Hard Rock Medical,” which is not only loosely based on the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, but is also filmed in and around the Sudbury area.

The last time Bartolucci made an announcement for a television show at NOSM, he handed over $1 million in Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp. dollars for "Hard Rock Medical".
