The series follows the experience of an Indigenous person who possesses two separate spirits

Thunderbird Entertainment Group Inc (CVE:TBRD) announced Friday that Canadian national broadcaster APTN has ordered a second season of its series ‘Queen of the Oil Patch.’

The acclaimed documentary series follows the experience of an Indigenous person who possesses two separate spirits known as Massey Whiteknife and Iceis Rain.

Whiteknife is an openly gay Indigenous entrepreneur, whose multimillion-dollar oil business was decimated by the collapse in oil prices and devastating wildfires. The program showcases his path to rebuilding his life with the help of his other spirit, Rain, who is a female pop singer and anti-bullying advocate.

The inaugural season of ‘Queen’ was nominated for prestigious awards in Canada, including Best Writing in a Factual Series at the 2019 Canadian Screen Awards.

Mark Miller, Thunderbird Entertainment’s president, said that the group was “touched” by the response to ‘Queen’ and APTN’s decision to move forward with a second season.

"The journey that Massey Whiteknife and Iceis Rain are undertaking, and bravely sharing with the world, is truly inspiring,” Miller said in a statement.

“It's a genuine honour to continue production on ‘Queen of the Oil Patch.’ We look forward to continuing to push boundaries and challenge perceptions, with a journey that is far from finished."

‘Queen’ is produced in collaboration with Kah-Kitowak Films, a Vancouver-based production company that focuses on positive Indigenous stories.

Production on the second season is underway in Fort McMurray, Alberta and the Mikisew Cree First Nation. Season Two will air in fall 2020 with an eight-episode run.

Thunderbird Entertainment Group is a Vancouver-based global multiplatform entertainment company with offices in Vancouver, Los Angeles, Toronto, Ottawa and London.
