"The Second City Project," which will premiere in short form on GlobalTV.com and Global Go this fall before airing on Global as a series of specials, is one Shaw's four new "cross-platform" offerings.

Featuring Canadian paleontologists making new discoveries, "Dino Hunt Canada" will air on History as a four-part television event, accompanied by interactive digital content on History.ca in partnership with the Royal Ontario Museum.
