“In The Rough”, an episodic golf-related drama, will kick-off the new Sport channel. The series follows the story of Will Ryan, a golf enthusiast who has always done the right thing and plays by the rules, but could never achieve his goal of playing professional golf. After a jarring event in his life, Will seizes a second chance to follow his dream, but soon encounters challenges he never expected. He finds playing tournament golf with the “big boys” can be a ruthless world where competitive rivals, corrupt sponsors and personal demons are all waiting to test his skills and perseverance on and off the green. Ultimately, the real challenge comes from within Will, himself, as he must transcend the pressures and the drama of his life to find glory in the game.
“In The Rough” was created and produced by J. Michael Dawson and Chantal Leblanc-Everett of Lifeforce Entertainment in Toronto, and funded in part by the Canadian Independent Production Fund. The series cast is from the United States and Canada, and includes Jake Michaels, Len Greenaway, Gary Biggar, Adele Gigantes, Frazer McIntyre, Stephanie Harris, Ryan Egan, Terry Novak, Danny Bruzzi, Pam Gordon, and Martha Girvin.
