Shavick Entertainment is a Canadian film and television production company,[1] owned and operated in Vancouver, British Columbia by James Shavick and his wife, former British Columbia politician Joy MacPhail.[2] The company has primarily produced television films, most notably the Donald Strachey mystery series starring Chad Allen,[3] as well as a few theatrical films and a number of television series, including The New Addams Family, Los Luchadores, Young Blades and Breaker High.[1]

The company also owns a majority interest in the Canadian specialty channel OUTtv.[3] Prior to 2012, Pink Triangle Press and Peace Point Entertainment were also minority partners in the channel, but Shavick bought out their shares in 2012.[4]

The firm was established in 1993, after Shavick returned to Canada from a stint as a producer with RKO Pictures.[1]
