Fifth Ground Entertainment (FGE)
Raj Panikkar and Chris Szarka front the dynamic Fifth Ground Entertainment (FGE) team. The Toronto-based FGE is a production company with a mission to create insightful, impactful content for television. Their unique combination of complementary skills allows us to head a boutique team internally capable of development, showrunning, production, post and marketing. FGE’s offerings fall under one of three banners: live-action for kids (Secrets of the Forest is in production for TVOkids), docs/factual for adults (Reelside for TMN, The Rawside of... for IFC), and scripted (Rent-a-Goalie for Showcase).
