The Thunderbird Group of Companies is pleased to announce that they have received 12 Canadian Screen Awards nominations. Their original multi-camera comedy Package Deal, which just completed its second season on City, tells the story of three overly close brothers and the woman who comes between them. Package Deal earns its first of three nominations in the Best Direction in a Comedic Series category for “I Love You?” directed by Adam Weissman.

Package Deal’s Julia Voth is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Comedic Role for her role as Kim. And comedy veteran Jay Malone is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role or Guest Role in a Comedic Series for his role as Ryan.
