About Us

Soshefeigh Media Inc. is a Vancouver-based production company with a mission to launch original TV formats in multiple territories. To date, we have produced shows for international audiences in the United States, Canada, the UK, and Ireland.

Since launching in 2013, Soshefeigh has produced original formats including BATTLE CATS for Bite TV (6×30 scripted comedy); two seasons of THE ALGORITHM for TV3 Ireland (10×60 game show); and the crowdfunding pilot START ME UP for Oxygen (1×60 competition).

Soshefeigh has a new primetime quiz show, INGENIOUS, in development at the CBC. As well, Soshefeigh has two shows at Channel 4 UK: a political satire with Madeleine Smithberg (co-creator of The Daily Show) and a massive physical game show, LEAP OF FAITH, with Stuart Shawcross and Victoria Ashbourne (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire UK).

Most recently, Soshefeigh entered into a co-development pact with Tommy Blacha (Emmy-Nominated comedy writer & former WWE Creative Director) for THE MARKS, a 10-part doc series that explores the history of wrestling from a unique POV … the fans themselves.
