The word "upfront" is a term used within the industry to describe a gathering at the start of an important advertising sales period. Every spring, television networks announce the primetime line-up for the upcoming fall season. In Canada, they occur after Canadian networks have had a chance to purchase the rights to new American series.

This is the second time I've gone to the CTV Upfront. Last year I decided to go after Josh Bowman (Revenge, Time After Time) was announced to be in attendance. For those of you who don't know me well yet, he is my fave.

I really enjoy this event because of how it's stayed under the radar. Over the years, the Toronto International Film Festival has begun overflowing with fans. The upfront however, remains for those who actually live for this industry. 

Over the years I've had the opportunity to meet some of the actors who have inspired and entertained me, yesterday was no different. I was graced by Lea Michele's presence, and able to rave about my love for Revenge (again) to Karine Vanasse.
