Double Dare is a double-barreled, action-packed documentary about two Hollywood stuntwomen, Jeannie Epper and Zoë Bell. Epper, who refuses to retire at sixty-four, doubled for Wonder Woman in the Seventies, and Bell landed the coveted job doubling Xena at the age of eighteen.

When the students of Tennessee’s Whitwell Middle School began studying the Holocaust as a way to learn about intolerance and diversity, nobody could have predicted the results. In 2001, the Paper Clip Project culminated in a unique memorial that changed the lives of those who created it, as well as touching Holocaust survivors and countless communities.
Because Norwegians invented the paper clip and used it as a symbol of solidarity against the Nazis, students started collecting them to help visualize such vast numbers of victims. As word spread online and in the media, paper clips poured in from around the world, 11 million of which are enshrined in an authentic German railcar standing in the schoolyard.

The docu-soap, Grim Sweepers, introduces a new household name in Christian Cadieux, the leader of a group of outcasts who dare to enter those creepy places and wash away bad memories. It takes a special kind of personality to handle the unique variety of contaminating challenges and to lead Canada’s most colorful, quirky and eccentric cleaning staff.

With the stress of growing a revolutionary cleaning business and competition on the rise, there’s never a dull moment for Cadieux and his intriguing cast of characters he counts as friends.

Add to the mix the birth of his twin girls and Christian is thrust into a whole new level of stress as he fights to balance time with his loving family and cleaning up the Grim Reaper’s mess.
