What We Do
WATCHING THE DETECTIVES
Watching The Detectives is a gritty and imaginative modern take on the classic crime story. This is a story that showcases the neighbourhoods and people you rarely see represented. Some of this is fact, some of this is fiction but it’s all wild.
HOUSE OF STROMBO
House of Strombo is a 10 episode concert series featuring a combination of international legends with young and upcoming artists across a variety of music genres, all playing live shows in George Stroumboulopoulos' downtown Toronto home. The series is the first of its kind in Canada presented by Apple Music on YouTube, with each episode accompanied by exclusive video features, band interviews and behind-the-scenes access only on Apple Music.

The Strombo Show (radio) is a 4 hour commercial-free, algorithm-free, musical, cultural, and community experience on CBC Music. From Aretha Franklin to Slayer, De La to Captain Beefheart, and everything in between. There are no boundaries. All genres, all eras. Great music, great interviews, great company.
