About Us

Soshefeigh Media Inc. is a Canadian production company with a mission to launch original TV formats across diverse genres and in multiple territories.

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 began international distribution of these formats in partnership with eOne Television (Battle Cats), All3Media (The Algorithm), and NBCUniversal (Start Me Up). In 2016, Channel 4 UK commissioned original episodes of BATTLE CATS as counter-programming for the Summer Olympics. More recently, Soshefeigh announced an original true crime series, THE DROWNINGS (6×60), as the inaugural project to be funded under a new Canada-Ireland co-production treaty. With formats airing in the US, UK, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, and Canada our footprint is truly global.

Soshefeigh is represented in Los Angeles and London by Creative Artists Agency.
