TORONTO, June 1, 2016 /CNW/ - As production wraps on CTV's first-ever
original serialized drama CARDINAL this month, CTV announced today that it will bring a second, original,
serialized drama, THE DISAPPEARANCE to Canadian viewers. From award-winning Montréal-based Productions
Casablanca, the six-part event series follows the mysterious
disappearance of 10-year-old Anthony Wilson, who vanishes on his
birthday during a treasure hunt. The series is set to begin shooting in
4K in and around Montréal in the fall of 2016. Casting for THE DISAPPEARANCE will be announced in the coming months.

In THE DISAPPEARANCE, Anthony's extended family is devastated by his unexplained and sudden
disappearance. The series premiere opens the story the night before
Anthony's disappearance and follows the family through the
investigation of his sudden vanishing. As the police search for signs
and traces of evidence, long-buried familial secrets with devastating
consequences come back to the surface, leaving a permanent mark on
every generation of the Wilson family.

"THE DISAPPEARANCE is a compelling event series that will send CTV viewers on an emotional
and intense journey," said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President,
Programming, CTV Networks and CraveTV. "Marking a new milestone as one
of Bell Media's original productions to be shot in 4K, we look forward
to bringing the world of THE DISAPPEARANCE to life with Productions Casablanca."

"THE DISAPPEARANCE is the first English project for Productions Casablanca and we are
thrilled and proud to produce this television series in association
with CTV and Bell Media," said Joanne Forgues, Producer, Productions

THE DISAPPEARANCE was first put into development by CTV in October 2015. The series is
created and written by the Montréal-based writing team of Normand
Daneau and Geneviève Simard. The series is executive produced by Joanne
Forgues and Jean-Marc Casanova of Productions Casablanca, creators of
the Prix Gémeaux-winning series, LES INVINCIBLES and SÉRIE NOIRE.

THE DISAPPEARANCE is produced by Productions Casablanca in association with Bell Media,
with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund and the
assistance of the Québec Film and Television Tax Credit and the
Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. Super Écran has
commissioned the series for French-language broadcast.

For Bell Media, Gosia Kamela is Production Executive; Tom Hastings is
Director, Drama, Independent Production; and Corrie Coe is Senior
Vice-President, Independent Production. Mike Cosentino is Senior
Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks and CraveTV. Randy Lennox is
