Rogers Media to release "The Booth at the End" trailer: an exclusive Canadian premier through "Shorts in the City"
TORONTO, July 26 /CNW/ – Rogers Media today announced that it is
releasing the trailer for the highly anticipated show, “The Booth at the
End,” through “Shorts in the City,” a Citytv.com
programming initiative in partnership with Nissan Canada. The trailer
will be featured in “Shorts in the City” on Citytv.com and
RogersOnDemand.com, and is produced by Vuguru, Michael Eisner’s
independent studio in which Rogers is an investor.
“The Booth at the End” centres on a mysterious Man who sits
at a booth at the end of a diner. People come to him with things they
want: a parent with a sick child, a woman who wants to be prettier. The
Man can make these things happen – for a price. In exchange for what
they want, these individuals must sacrifice their morals and do deeds
normally inconceivable to them. The Man never forces anyone to do
anything. It’s always up to them to start – or stop – with one lingering
question: “How far would you go to get what you want?” “The Booth at
the End” has an ensemble cast showcasing veteran talent from TV and
film, including Xander Berkeley from 24 (Season 1 and 2) as The Man.
“The Booth at the End” launches August 9th, as a worldwide, exclusive
Canadian premier. “We will be featuring “The Booth at the End” on our “Shorts
in the City“ channel on Citytv.com, as well as distributing
it across other Rogers websites and platforms, including
RogersOnDemand.com and the “Shorts in The City” iPad and iPhone
applications,” said Claude Galipeau, SVP & GM Digital Media, Rogers
Media. “This release continues our innovative partnership with Nissan
Canada to provide Canadians with high-quality, exclusive multi-screen
