Tyson's Story

Tyson is the co-creator and executive producer of several successful docuseries including global phenomenon ‘Rust Valley Restorers’ (Netflix International and History Channel Canada) as well as ‘The Dog Dudes’ (Amazon Prime, Apple Plus).

In 2013, Tyson partnered with David Paperny and Discovery Channel to produce the hit series ‘Cold Water Cowboys’ about high stakes fisheries in Newfoundland.

“I remember the first time going into a film producers office to pitch an idea, it was definitely a nerve-wracking experience. I was fortunate enough to partner with good people. I want to provide this same experience to others in the industry by offering to help them develop their ideas with a passionate, supportive team behind them”

Now, Tyson is flipping the script and calling on people to submit their TV show concept for further development.

  2. Talent or a host – Doesn’t have to be a celebrity but ‘talent’ needs to be just that… ‘Talented’ and hold lots of potential either as a host for a format show or a character to build a series around.
  3. Access – Do you have exclusive access to a rescue station, police precinct or anywhere else the public doesn’t necessarily have access to? This is of value!
