Pitch Perfect: “Inspired by the life of Marianne Saint-Gelais (short track speed skater/triple Olympic medalist), Virage/Veer sheds light on our society, which prizes achievement at any cost. It tackles the void that professional athletes struggle with when they end their careers. An international subject matter presented in a dramatic eight-part series.” —Barbara Vallant, Head, Formats, Sales & Acquisitions, aroma-TV
