Fresh TV is a Toronto-based Canadian production company specializing in family entertainment that was founded in 2002 by former Nelvana employees Jennifer Pertsch and Tom McGillis.
They're most famous for creating hit animated series like the Total Drama franchise and 6teen, but have also done their share of live-action works as well, such as My Babysitter's a Vampire, one of the few non-animated series produced in association with Teletoon. Most of their works are aimed at tweens and teenagers, but they have expanded a little into younger demographics, such as with Grojband (their only original animated series not credited as the creation of Pertsch and McGillis, instead being credited to Total Drama directors Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton) and their acquisition of the Lucas the Spider web shorts in 2018.
Most of their series have aired domestically on Teletoon and Family Channel, with international broadcasting usually being handled by Cartoon Network (for animated shows) and Disney Channel (for live-action stuff). They also have a sister company in the animation studio Elliott Animation Inc., which has done the animation for all of their cartoons.
