In 2010 Lively produced Enraged, a ratings winner for Discovery Health US and TVtropolis that aired in May 2010. Crouch was also the supervising producer of Stock & Awe, the highly acclaimed business comedy for BNN and CTV, the only business show on earth with dancing sequences.
In 2011, the company completed production of run run revolution™ (CBC) that was nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards.
Recent productions include I Didn't Do It, ( 7 x 60) a police procedural for Investigation Discovery US, Canada and Crime Investigation UK (narrated by Chris Noth) and a second season of Breeder of the Pack (8 x 30 for Animal Planet).
